Re: Underrated Drummers

Phil Selway of Radiohead is a really phenomenal and underrated drummer. I recommend "Pyramid Song." Really incredible. Also, In Rainbows is one of the most in the pocket albums I've heard in along...

Re: Nasheet Waits

NPR has a first listen up of Jason Moran's new album, "Ten," coming out on July 14, and I must say that Nasheet Waits sounds absolutely phenomenal on it. I'm especially digging his brush work. He...

Re: Kit Selection HELP!

Well for one thing, you should really try to either play a bunch of different sets and/or listen to drummers whose sounds you like and figure out what you might like that way. i wouldn't go brand...

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

Check out Jeff Beck's "Live at Ronnie Scotts." Vinnie put some great stuff forward in that show, and his brushwork on "Cause We've Ended As Lovers" off of that album is superb.

Re: non "latin" music with a "latin" influence

I don't know much from that band but one that always sticks out in my mind is Cat Empire. The drumming itself is often pretty straight forward and rockish but the band as a whole is very heavily...

Re: Is solo drumming music?

I think that, while it is difficult to achieve an exact tone on drumset, drumset has the ability to make groove on its own. From a theoretical standpoint, groove (and rhythm) are just as much a part...

Re: Post Your Greatest Strength

I'd have to say my biggest strength is my sense of time. I've worked hard on my ability to play odd-time signatures and incorporate strange rhythms into my grooves and fills.

Unfortunately unless...

Re: Danny Carey

Honestly, I enjoyed 10,000 Days. It definitely wasn't their best, but much of it put me into an induced meditation that was pretty cool. It's no Lateralus, but then again, Lateralus is a masterpiece.

Pat Pengelly

He just quit from the band Bedouin Soundclash, a Canadian reggae/alt band, but I highly suggest listening to him on their three albums. He's got a great feel and really adds to the group. I'm...

Re: Drum Fun- turn it up: play-along

You mean the Turn It Up, Lay It Down series? I have several of them and they're a great, really simple tool to use. All of the CD's are mixed very well. I first used Vol. 1 when I was just starting...

Re: Good songs for jamming to?

I love playing along to Wyclef Jean. I feel like I work a lot of cool beats and grooves into his stuff.

Re: Practising?

I use headphones more like those mufflers. But mine are relatively cheap, so the sound quality isn't great and they don't muffle all that well. However, I find that my setup is the most like an...

Re: Keith Moon

I don't think the majority of people love him for his technical ability. I think it's mostly how much energy he plays the drums with and how effectively he made the sound of The Who.

I don't think...

Re: Billy Cobham

I just saw Billy Cobham live about two weeks ago. I had heard that he might've lost a step or two with age based on a previous tour, but not on this tour. He hasn't lost a step. Billy nailed...

Re: Danny Carey

Yea. Danny Carey has definitely been one of my biggest influences. I try to pull a lot of things out of his style, especially his polyrhythms. But just everything he plays, I love. His combination of...
