Re: Discouraging & deterring theft on gigs

Re: Founding Mars Volta Drummer Blake Fleming Here

I don't normally like drum solos very much, even though I'm a drummer and I play drum solos, but I listened to a couple of yours all the way through. You have a very original approach to drumming...

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Re: similar band names

wow! that's a good story. we haven't gotten any email yet, but i think it's just a matter of time. i'm sure one of their fans will find us and bring our band name to their attention.

Re: similar band names

it's not exactly the same name, but it's very close. only one letter in two words is different. it'd be like a female artist calling herself "lady gago" or something like that.

Re: I have these playing hiccups. What can I do?
