Re: Vinnie Paul

My former band's producer, Bernard Alexander, helped with stuff backstage for Damage Plan in Deteroit and said Vinnie used an Alesis DM-Pro as a sound module. He triggered all his drums, according to...

Re: Neil Peart's Kit - Is there a reason for it to bounce around like that?

His kit has swayed even before he started using the revolving drum riser. Watch the Exit Stage Left video. Apparently it hasn't been a problem.

Sean Kinney's snare sounds: Roland R8 samples??

Just joined an AIC tribute band and was wondering if anyone has figured out Sean's snare sounds? Some of the early recordings sound just like snare patches from Roland's R8 model drum machine, which...

Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

Here's my 2-cent Buddy story: I had seen Buddy in various Modern Drummer articles and ads, also the classic Ludwig posters at all the music stores when I first started playing. I knew he was an icon...

Re: How much can your butt take?

I can sit there for hours and hours if it's one of my Roc n Soc thrones, but I can't even sit for an hour, not even close on a regular/cheap throne. I've been using hydraulic seating since 1984, so I...

Re: Weirdest mistakes you've made?

One time I had a crash cymbal too close to a rack tom and twice throughout the set the cymbal flew completely off the arm. It was a custom non-threaded type that had never been a problem until that...

Re: Bill Bruford

Cool... I love the title track "red". What an original blues tune, huh? I read a story how he used a severely broken cymbal he found laying around for the effects on "one more red nightmare".

I'd say you're on par with most club drummers I've seen. Are you sure it wasn't a personality conflict? One thing I've noticed over the years is that it's just as important to be able to work well...

Re: Ian Paice

I saw Deep Purple with ELP and Dream Theater in the late nineties. I have been a die-hard DT fan since 1990 but I must say Deep Purple stole the show that night. Ian kicks @ss. I even got to meet...

Re: Randy Castillo

I thought Randy's playing was very smooth. He was a great entertainer in my book. You don't get hired to play for Ozzy if you have nothing to offer the band. Let's be real.

Re: Bill Bruford

He's one of my all time fav's. I saw King Crimson once and as luck would have it Bill didn't play on that tour. If fact I don't think he's been with them in years, has he? Pardon me for my ignorance.

Re: Phil Ehart

Phil is definitely one of my favorites. What could you not like about his drumming on Magnum Opus or Song for America??

Re: Rod Morgenstein

such an awesome drummer with Dixie Dregs. I wish he was turned up in the P.A. more when I saw them (dregs and Rod) with dream theater. It sounded very plain. What a bummer. Got to meet Steve Morse,...

Re: Don Brewer

I think most of us should pay tribute to Don just on the intro to american band not to mention so many other classic tunes.

I have a TD-3 kit too, and after I got it, my brother and bandmate didn't want anything to do with acoustic drums any more. In fact, I'm selling the old Slingerland kit I bought which used to stay...
