My old band played 40 weeks a year at The Stardust until 2001 and we would go over to The Riviera every Saturday night at 1 am to watch Lon Bronson and his all star band. These are all the guys who...

Re: Tips on Selling a Drumset?

Craigslist is great if you are in a hurry but you will get far more cash off Ebay. I can buy or sell pretty much any pro level cymbal on Craigslist for $100 cash, like a 18" A Zildjian Med Thin crash...

Re: Playing to click - the mechanics

A lot of the casino bands or oldies acts sequence a lot of horn parts or percussion, so I as the drummer am in charge of running the tracks, so I am the only one hearing the click and the band...

Re: stick in the eye anyone? not for the meek!

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I think Freddie Gruber hurt, NOT helped Peart, Weckl and more. I say this because if you look at Peart's kits before Freddie, he had three toms up front and his ride was nice and off to the far...

Re: Drummers are athletes

IMO a lot of drummers technique is wasteful of energy. I'd like to see the same test done on Vinnie. Someone who swings from the shoulders and elbows will use (just guessing) 3x more energy than the...

Re: Just how much DO drummers make?

And yet never once in a Modern Drummer or similar mag does the interviewer ask the drummer how much he makes, which pisses me off. I was never afraid to just ask anybody how much their gig or job...

Re: I can only play original music?

I can't imagine ever becoming a great drummer if you can't nail parts played by others, especially easy parts but maybe it's because you haven't tried long enough. Why don't you make a video of you...

Re: Please help determining value of these Recording Customs.

Re: How often do you break/drop your sticks?

I use 2b sticks or Alex Van Halen models and I rarely drop a stick but for a typical casino or bar gig lasting 3 hours I break 2-4 per gig. Remember, Lars broke upwards of 20 sticks a night before he...

Re: Please help determining value of these Recording Customs.

I'd hate to guess their value but by all means do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT SPLIT the drums up for sale as some moron will want a 4 piece and will ruin a very nice larger kit. These drums were made to be...
