Re: How not to drop sticks

Mental note: Don't drop a stick! Serious note, don't rub your face or head, or run your fingers through your hair. Keep a fresh towel behind the kit and wipe your hands off if they get sweaty and or...

Re: The Speed Obsession

There's a lot going on with your rant/question. First, should we de-evolve? So we're getting faster and stronger and constantly pushing our human limitations. Trying to be anything less seems...

Re: How Far for a Paid Gig will you travel?

It's an age thing as well for me. When I was twenty two me and the boys piled into the van and hit the road for sixteen dates in through New England (in January) with no guaranteed money, on less...

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

This is the most baited question. Alright I'll bite. They're all great for rock/metal. There I said it. Successful musicians playing rock and metal use maple, brass, bronze, steel, aluminum,...

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

I did a half Tool half Deftones project a couple years ago. Talk about a double take. When you start getting into Danny Carey's work each song gets more intricate than the last. I'm not as good as he...

Re: What drummers need for a gig

A full set of heads (they can be used). A carpet. A back up pedal. Spare drum keys. These are necessities to guard against catastrophic events. Cases are great, hard or soft they will make your job...

Re: Sonor Prolite shell thickenss

My kit is super thin 5 plies, 5/32" which is 3.3 in mm. It is extremely good for hard rock and metal. Where did you get the idea that thin shells are not good for rock?

Re: What's My Next Move?

I've rented a rehearsal space for twenty years. It's part of doing business. I also built a sound system of my own (no relying on others). Subs, mains, monitors, P.A. for front of house, P.A. for...

Re: groove vs chops?

Have you ever seen a drum major that couldn't play a trap kit? Some people know how to play every rudiment perfectly and some know how to rock the "@#$ out of a drum set. And then there are some that...

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

The big drawn out end to a song is cool in its place. It s not "unmusical", as you are literally playing music on musical instruments. If you can find a better way to get two or three thousand people...

Re: Bass Drum Dimensions

Thanks. A 22" is probably the most versatile, it has more "punch" than a 24" and it's louder and moves more air than a 20". The 15" is an oddball. I get a raised eyebrow every now and then when...

Jeez Billy! That dude has chops! I guess I need to write a solo and impose my evil double bass plans ;=)

Re: Bass Drum Dimensions

Think of the bass drum like a speaker. A 10" woofer simply cannot move as much air as an 18" woofer and an 18" speaker cannot move air as quickly as a 10". When you hear people say a 20" drum is...

Tell me a better way to work double bass fills into a country set and I'll give it a try.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

The less expensive DW Collectors finishes are satin oil and finishply and they both look stunning. All the sets you've listed are great, but maple is my wood of choice. Don't let anyone here fool...

Re: A new project

I'm loving the song choices. Ambitious material. The reason cover bands get such a bad rap is that most musicians are hacks. They chose the lowest common denominator for a set list and then do it no...

Re: The side snare

Yeah it's basically just a way to get more dynamics out of certain parts and have another snare sound for certain songs. It's by no means necessary. I could get through a set without them, but my...

Re: Ringo should have performed at Candlestick Park not just Paul

This is the last event ever at Candlestick. It's not a Beatles tribute. Coincidentally the Beatles played their last gig there. I fail to see why Paul (who is on tour) needed to have Ringo (who is...

Re: The side snare

The idea first started kicking around my head in 96 after watching Taylor Hawkins (pre Foo Fighters) playing for Alannis Morrisette. He was using three snare drums to mimic the variety of snare...

It's actually more for tax purposes. I'm in the process of doing it (for the third time) because my current project is beginning to show a profit. When checks for performances are issued (especially...

Re: Bad Auditions

My advice is to let this one go. Maybe they will call, but at this point do you really want them to. Bands aren't only about ability, but about relationships as well. Sometimes feel and technique are...
