Re: Taking kick pedals on a plane

Some years ago I was flying back from Italy to the UK with cymbals, snare and kick pedal. On the way out I had checked everything, but had the pedal as carry-on for the way back. Long story short,...

Re: Just saw Birdman, would watch again for the drums by Antonio Sanchez!

Yes, I saw it last week. It was either the best or worst movie I've seen for a long time, or possibly both (on the one hand, an audacious, provocative and technically quite amazing piece of...

Re: Your personal record for most songs learned in the shortest time?

Re: Drumming Karma

Re: Cover version permission for a CD - anyone in the UK done it?

To manufacture CDs in the UK, you need to apply for an AP2 licence from the MCPS - CD manufacturers will ask you to provide it (you still need to do do this even if it's all your own music, but then...

Re: Memory Lane......

First snare (far left) added to first kit, 1983, age 10. Interesting snare placement. My style hasn't changed much, though.

Re: What drum/cymbal/piece of gear have you owned the longest?

Paiste Signature 13" Dark Crisp Hi-Hats. Had my current pair for about 15 years - would have been even longer, but the first pair I owned were stolen!

Re: Djembe vs Congas?

Re: Musical artists who's death saddened you.

In recent times, I was very saddened by the death of Mark Linkous, aka Sparklehorse, who took his own life in 2010. He was someone who projected a great deal of emotional fragility in his music, and...

Re: Two rides?

For my current project, I have been using a Paiste Dry Dark 20" on the left and a 1960s Zildjian 20" with three rivets on the right, more or less opposites in terms of sound. Both are crashable...

Re: Anyone tried taking cymbal bag and snare on a plane (Ryan Air)?
