Re: Bo rants!

Yup good call.. If the 'meltdown' was extreme anger, yelling and swearing; I wouldn't put up with it either..esp. Over such a minor issue. What happens if there's a big issue? Usually when a band has...

Re: What is your opinion of this Billy Cobham review?

I've seen BC play live and his volume was fine.. If the reviewer thought the sound was not balanced he should of at least walked around the auditorium to see if he either just had a bad seat or if...

That's amazing! I don't know how you found those clips.. you can see the evolution in the rythmn as he tries different feels after each take. and finally settles on it. Those guys would knock off 3...

Re: Has any one tried the song "Hollywood Nights" by Bob Segar?

One of my bands played that tune and I was forced to learn it.. a really awful drum part IMHO.. just repetitive mush with no dynamics.. I think you could probably find the pattern in Ted Reed's...

Re: played (maybe joined) in blues band

I think you mean the 'Flat tire shuffle'
Also nothing wrong with Further on up the Road.. Levon Helm plays a mean shuffle on that one.. while singing the lead vocal as well!

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Quote: "...I think John or Paul said "Can you play that Ray Charles bit?", and Ringo said "Yes, I know that well""

As I said before, one of the reasons they picked Ringo over Pete Best was he had...

That's ridiculous.. you can't change anyone's taste in music, and no one really cares what other people like. .. it's when there are factually incorrect opinions stated that it get's murky.. like...

Re: played (maybe joined) in blues band

If you can shuffle well enough that people jump onto the dance floor without ever hearing the tune, then you've got it! My favorite shuffles are the 'killer shuffle' and the 'stumble shuffle'.. or...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Heresay! You're a heretic.. it's funny, the only people I've ever met, that don't like the Beatles, are those that lived close to where they came from. A couple of my friends who grew up in...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

I heard a radio interview where John Lennon was asked why they chose Ringo as their drummer and he replied:
"best backbeat in the business!"

Also, someone posted John as saying in another...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Cool! Wish that was around when I had to figure it out.. I used the old 'ear to the speaker' trick to figure out the kick drum pattern (which was kind of buried in the mix).

He uses cross-stick on...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Re: Yet another "What time signature is this song in" thread
