Re: I can't play my drums now!!

But then, I...

Re: is $100 too much for a pitting 70s Ludwig supraphonic

Re: What has been thrown at you during a gig?

Had a rather large bottle of whiskey hit the wall behind me once at a gig some years back. Missed me by about 18 inches.

Re: Going off the Preferred set up thread...

Re: Drummers - What sets *you* apart ?

What sets me apart?

Hmm.....I'm told I'm reliable, never missed a gig. I don't overplay. Never play the song the same way twice.......been told my left arm is like a metronome.
