Re: Worst song ever

I DJ quite regularly, and have had people threaten me with bottles for refusing on principle to play that song.

Gerry Marsden was an Evertonian as a kid, then turned over to being a red as soon as...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

Hardcases all the way for me, rather than bags.

Re: Good ear plugs(or other sound attenuation methods) for liver performance...?

You can get in-ear monitoring systems fairly cheaply.

Or, if you're not wanting to spend that sort of money, something like this works...

Scousers always say me rather than my.

Re: Ain't no more fun...

And this is why I ignored my parents and played footy on Sunday mornings, rather than be dragged to church.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

He, really, really isn't. Something that pretty much any Scouser will attest to.

Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

I'd ban You'll Never Walk Alone three times.

Then have Gerry Marsden shot, just to make sure.

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

1. How many bands are you in?

Two that I actively gig with, plus occasional sub slots when I have time.

2. What kind of music does each band play? Instrumentation?

Band 1 - 24hr Motown...

Nobody seems to have gone into the cape/wizard's hat combo.

Re: Is it just me?

It is much easier said than done to be carrying more than one batch of cymbals. These things are bloody expensive, especially when you're talking the HH/HHX/A Custom/K Custom end of the market. I'd...

Re: Moody Blues’s Graeme Edge: A Responsibility to Play the Hits

I do like the story of Neil Young playing a gig, and playing solely his new album in its entirety. At that point the album hadn't even been released. At the end of it he announced "And now I'm...

Re: Anyone Use Ear Muffs? (Peltor)

I use Peltor to rehearse in, although at times it can sound like I'm playing under water. Ise use plugs on stage though - Peltor's just don't quite have the aesthetics for wedding gigs.

Re: (How to cope with) Drums at University

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

We obviously had crossed wires. For a small bar, I'd only mic the bass drum for a bit of extra oomph.

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

Not at all in the over powering stakes - I'm not a hard hitter, at all, and tend to get lost in the mix. The venues we play are generally 200-300 people, so kit micing is right for us.

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

I do it, because it means I can concentrate on the groovem rather than hitting harder to cut through the mix. Its a seven piece band, with brass section, so finding a voice unmiced can be difficult....

Re: Drummer Sweat

I carry a small fan with me to gigs, especially during the summer, which I set up behind me and have on while I'm playing.
