Re: The official London Drum Show thread. Who's coming - forum member arrangements!

I was very much hoping to be there. I was planning on stopping over and taking in the LDS on the way to Dover (for the ferry to France) in our camper. But we've had to change our plans, can't leave...

Re: Stage volume

This is exactly the experience I had with a band where I had volume concerns like yours. The bands reaction (among ourselves of course) was to sneer at the peasants who apparently didn't appreciate...

Re: Stage volume

Good luck with it Larry. I had this problem with a band a couple of years ago. Grey haired geezers in their 50s and when it came to volume they were idiots. Prided themselves on their stupid...

Re: Gig Disasters?

I once had the same experience as Brandon, bass beater got caught in my trousers. Not a disaster, when the song finished I rolled up the right trouser leg to just above my knee to keep it out of the...

Re: Putting myself out there ( uncle Larry, this ones for you)

Nooooo !! What? I mean - WHAT !!! That's absolutely wonderful. I am as happy for you as is possible for an insanely jealous person to be (if you follow me).

The practising is so much more...

Re: How does a band keep a drummer?....

I don't think this problem is just limited to drummers, is it? Bands I've been in - had the same experience with singers, guitarists and keyboards. They say "yes" then a couple of days later, or...

Re: Should I join this band? (never been in one before). Many questions inside.

I've always taken the attitude that I don't have to like them, just so long as we can work together on a business like basis, all be polite and respectful, etc. etc. I thought it would be like in...

Re: Concept Setlist?

I think it would work well for a mash up/medley, especially if it was an extended medley and danceable, that kept people up on the floor for a while. I think people would "get" the concept idea in...

Re: Putting myself out there ( uncle Larry, this ones for you)

Just wanted to agree with everyone else. It's a really well worded ad. (I also like the bit about the "live in boyfriend").

I put out a similar ad some years ago. I actually only got one...

Re: Playing while injured

Larry, when I read your post I assumed you HAD seen a doctor and were just (understandably) venting about the pain.

That degree of pain means DAMAGE- and damage has to be either treated or at...

Re: You're never too old!

I wasn't having a dig at you Bo. It used to annoy me - well actually it just made me feel even more insecure than I already was - but now I realise it's an entirely natural reaction. And quite...

Re: You're never too old!

I got my first drum set and started having lessons 5 years before I retired. I was always intending to learn when I retired, but my husband thought it'd be a good idea to get started a little...

Re: bass players who speed up

Tell them to play without you, and watch them speed up. Then tell the bass player to drop out for a couple of numbers. They should see where the problem lies. (I've done this).

Re: The aging musician

My post in this thread about ageing musicians has changed my status to "senior member".

Spooky.

Re: The aging musician

Ageing isn't cool or uncool. It just is (assuming you're fortunate enough to live to experience it).

I only started drumming in my 50s. I'm glad Iived long enough and stayed fit enough to take...

Re: A mental block I need to get over ...

I have digested everything, so thanks to all. I do need to just mess around and experiment on the kit more. I don't know where I expect this ability to come from if I don't actually practice it. ...

Re: A mental block I need to get over ...

Well ... I'm no "fill queen" - obviously. But there are times where they're needed, and I feel like if I just play through those places, it's like "What's the point of YOU, just keeping the beat.....

"Fill needed here. DO SOMETHING" = PANIC, mess it up.

Re: Is it immoral to exploit the talents of the young?

Wow. I'm totally with BTC and Squadleader on this.

I find it all very disturbing. Perhaps the most disturbing thing is the proud comment on the website that "he's never had a lesson". So get...

Re: When did you stop feeling like a Noob?

Mary, don't be discouraged. I'm in the same boat as you. There may be fewer older/inexperienced musicians out there, but they do exist. There are also older and very experienced musicians who...

Re: Your parents' attitude towards your drumming

This reminds me of dance teacher friend (still teaching, well into her 70s). She told me her mother had been the drummer with a dance band.

"She only gave it up when she couldn't really carry...

Re: Your parent's attitude towards your drumming

My parents weren't exactly musical but they were arty and they encouraged us to follow any arty inclination. My sisters and I are all in our 60s now. One is a poet and plays clarinet. The other...
