Re: The state of pop music

This is true for most, if not all forms of music, even when you break down specific genres and subgenres.

You'd hear people say Metal, for instance, is in both a second/third/fourth? golden age...

Re: Drinking and Drumming

The old saying "If you're gonna play fucked up, you better practice fucked up"

Reminds me of some of my DJ friends who could smash down two or three E's, couple lines of blow, even eat acid, then...

Re: History of Ride Placement

I played for quite a while with the ride up in the Danny Carey position. It's actually very comfortable and the rebound seems much more effortless.

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Play to the head and not through it?

I've heard the exact opposite advice given in regards to getting a fuller tone with less physical force and allowing the energy of the strike to leave your...

Re: Does your gear HAVE to be the same brand or do you mix/match?

Drums (except snare), cymbals, and heads are the same manufacturer whenever possible.

Hardware is a little less prone to OCD for me. I have several heavy duty Gibraltar Booms I bought in the 90s,...

Re: You and your practice regimen, come clean

I try to get to the rehearsal space at least once or twice a week without the band there. Some days I get 4-5 hours in, other days I'm done after 45 minutes.

I know in truth I should have a bit...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

I have a hard time believing Art Blakey or Elvin Jones would waste their time sitting down to a duel with a "mediocre player"

Re: Playing covers vs. playing originals... or both?

play in a cover band a couple times a month to help finance your originals projects.

If your brother doesn't admire that then you can at least tell him how great you feel making money and...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

I find it both a testament and a damnation that Johnny Rotten shows so much reverence for the guy. Can you imagine what those PIL sessions would have been like with the two of them in the studio...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

nah man. they did get overused to hell in the mid to late 90s. But they could be quite nice when they were miked up for tight and dry vs shell resonance and compression for days.

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

I forget which musician in the doc I'm quoting but he says

"he influenced me.....as a drummer, but not as a person"

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

He's definitely a more versatile drummer than Bonham. But for all that's worth, he will never be as memorable of a drummer to such a wide audience, musicians and listeners alike. Which is saying...

Re: Drummer- the only musician that can't mess up?

Depends on what kind of mistake.

break a stick and miss playing one backbeat and it's not such a big deal. I feel like you can get away with screwing up a little on fills as long as you come back...

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Good question. I've never removed the lugs from a Supra. I'd think you'd almost have to have something there. Even a paper gasket.

Re: Muscle Seizing/Fatigue at Gigs

Pre-hydrating is the best advice, but be careful how much you are actually taking in.

If the music you're playing doesn't turn you into a sweatbeast on stage and you pound a 32 oz Gatorade, you...
