Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

I'll play almost anywhere, but there is one venue in town we won't play and that is because the company who handles all their booking has jerked us around so much we can't take it anymore.

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

We do a big "train wreck" ending after one of our songs and the audience loves it, so that makes it worthwhile. If we did it after every song, that'd be another story.

Re: What is the most hilarious question someone has asked you about drums/drumming?

Re: Adding to the Setlist....

i think the best thing would be to find songs that you like *and* are reasonably within your reach. A common rookie mistake is to insist on playing songs that are way out of reach, but playing songs...

Re: Honey Don't by the Beatles
