Re: Meeting Herbie Hancock and Vinnie Colaiuta, and...

Vinnie was a very quiet guy. I actually waited outside the stage door that afternoon (for 2 and a half hours) for the band to come in. When they finally got there I introduced myself and Vinnie...

Did anyone else catch Anton's (extremely weak!) attempt at a "Buddy-style" big single stroke roll-type build?!?! If he had (been able to??) keep it going, it would have been really cool (a al Buddy)...

Re: Affordable jazz drum set

Re: Pimp my Acro!

I just picked up a pretty good condition 70's Acro. Put some new heads on it and man, it sounds great. Now I have both an Acro and a Supra. Time to do comparisons.
