Bought 2 jazz drumming books to expand my horizons...thoughts?

Hey all,

So I'm primarily more of a heavy hitter. My comfort zone is basic rock/alternative/punk. Put on any Foo Fighters or Green Day record and I can hang with it cover to cover no problem....

Re: Good "soft" practice pad?

Thanks everyone! I DID wind up going with the Moongel pad and I love the feel of it. It leans toward the "dead" side, but still has just a touch of rebound. It wound up being exactly what I was...

Re: Drummers who play too much!

I like "playing for the song" 97% of the time. The other 3% of the time I like to pull a Stewart Copeland and throw some obnoxious-ness in there just to remind everyone that I'm still there ;)

Drums on "All This Time" by Sting?

Anyone know who played drums on this track? I believe it came out 1990 or 1991. Sounds ALOT like Stewart Copeland, but I find that highly unlikely. The drum sound and the playing is 110% Copeland...
