Re: Was anyone in the audience for Fred Armisen's Drummer's Only comedy show?

I liked it for the most part, but definitely not your typical stand up comedy. My son watched it with me and got most of the drum related humor since I talk drums around him. He has been my guest...

Re: Proper Etiquette When Asked A Question

I ask all the time and it isn't to get compliments, I honestly want to know. That is one of the reasons I record almost everything show. But honest opinions are good to have. If I have an equipment...

Re: Hired Gun

Sounds like a non viable business strategy, and maybe, just maybe they should scale back and move at a slower pace. I totally understand where you are coming from, but personally don't have much...

Re: Hired Gun

I watched it last week and was surprised at how widespread the 'hired gun' concept is spread. I have read about artists like Ted Nugent and more recently the drama behind Ghost and thought, what...

Re: How to deal with getting kicked out of a band

Never been kicked out, but was the breaker and basically fired our bassist last year. Only problem is that she was married to the lead guitarist which caused a split. After 5 years together she was...

Re: Making a Living/Happiness and drumming

I like to think of this as a fun hobby that pretty much pays for itself. I have a full time career and have no plans on giving it up. The band thing is a once or twice a week practice, sometimes more...

Re: Could this be it?

There are ICE drums, not very practical though.

Re: Recording tips for newer drummers: The studio is *very* different to live/rehearsal

Omg, that was so our last bassist. She doesn't know, but her husband and the other guitar player recorded her bass parts when she wasn't around. She (the bassist) couldn't play her own parts.

Re: How Many Drums do You Own?

Too many :)

1 - 7 piece Ddrum set (gig)
1 - 6 piece Sonor set (bandroom)
1 - 6 piece Premier

Add to that two extra snares brings the total to 21. Now are we counting rototoms and bongos?...

Re: Reverbnation myband camp etc

When we reformed our band we didn't bother with reverbnation, it was never any good other than keeping track of events. Facebook can do that as well as videos. Also 99% of the 'fans on that site...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

The last few weeks were pretty big for me. Decided I wanted a dedicated practice set at home instead of putting together and tearing down my gig set, practice was suffering. Found a great deal on a...

Re: Question for 3-up drummers.

I play 3 up, 1 down. A few years ago I started having wrist pain due to the ride cymbal being to the far left (traditional position). I moved my ride to a similar position as GruntersDad and the pain...

Re: Its all in the family

Was in a band for about 5 years with a husband / wife. It also happens that the husband was also my nephew via marriage. It was pretty good at times, but when it was bad it got really bad. They would...

Re: Stage Fright

I used to have major stage fright issues. Mostly came from lack of self confidence and having been bullied a lot when I was younger. I had a bad stutter and was rather short, one of the worst...

Re: Anybody Still Use Roto Toms?

I have a set of old Remos, think they are 8, 10, 12. I've tried implementing them in with my six piece for practicing only (wouldn't want to lug them to a gig). Not the easiest drums to place in a...

Re: Drum Sounds?

What kind of heads are you using on your bass drums? I run a 20X20, but it is no where as deep as what you are getting. Any setup information you would care to share?

Re: Assimilating drum parts

Pretty much the same for me. I can read music, but never formally write it. On top of that I will record practice and live sessions and review them often. I also like to start simple and build on...

Looking for support for Pocaroo (local music festival)

My band has a chance to open for Saliva, LA Guns, and American Hitmen. Thing is they have turned this into a popularity contest based on votes.

He still hasn't figured out that you can play slower and still be heavy.

Re: Lars Ulrich

I agree, his accents and fills are weird. When covering a song they are hard for me to anticipate, but I like it. Maybe not the most technical drummer, but right for Metallica. Maybe more lazy now...

Re: How tense are you when you play?

Only for the first few songs. I always insist on moderate tempo songs for the start of our setlist, after that we bounce back and fourth between slow and fast. That is usually the only warm up I get....

Re: Crap rehearsal = great gig?

Nothing like a live stage to focus and sharpen a performance. Not to say it works all the time, but personally we've never had a practice that stacked up with the best live show. Personally I don't...
