Interesting. I recently added a full-length mirror to my left side in my practice room and then I noticed how much I do exactly that! I watched myself doing it and wondered why? Then I realized...

Re: Drum shoes

I've read all of these former athletes using wrestling shoes or basketball shoes (Chuck T's), so I decided to try my old track spikes... No dice (and not serious). I love to drum barefoot! I'm not...

Re: Musical artists who's death saddened you.

I can't believe I forgot to mention Moonie, who died just a couple of years before Bonham and Lennon. I "owned" the Who since Squeeze Box came out. I really dug that song when all of my friends...

Re: Whats your favore music store

We're lucky here in Austin, with lots of great music stores. But I got to throw my vote for Tommy's Drum Shop in Austin, Texas. Always, always great and knowledgeable service.

Re: Skill for age level

Re: Thumb/Palm Pain

I agree, go seek a medical diagnosis, you should never feel pain when drumming. I firmly believe that "no pain, no gain" is NOT a drumming motto.

Re: Playing like Moon the loon?

You should have spoken to Scot Halpin before he died four years ago. One of the gutsiest and luckiest Moon fan/drummers out there.
