Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

Re: What's actually going well for you in your world of music?

My groove is going really well. I've been working on this mainly for the last few years and find that I can dial it in much easier and more often than before. The groove used to be more of an...

Re: Playing in multiple bands

Agree with most of the responses here. I have a day-job and also play in two bands - a "main" one and one not quite as good that I stay with due to the friendships. The friendship band doesn't...

Re: Have you ever have someone in the audience tells you your playing a song wrong?

I'm often amused by bass or guitar players attempting to explain drum parts to me.

Re: Staying in the Pocket over the entire gig

Yes on taking breaks.

It's not so much "thinking" as it is awareness of super-greasy and awareness when it's not as I'm playing. The thinking/analysis comes after the gig. For me anyway, I can't...

Staying in the Pocket over the entire gig

Had two gigs with the same band this weekend (I'm in two). The second gig, Sunday afternoon, was killer. The band played great, in the groove and was well-received with a full dance floor for...

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

Re: Michael Miley

Oh Hell yes! A big fan.

My only bitch about Rival Sons is that in the last 3-4 years they have not done any touring to Western US cities. They're from Long Beach, CA after all. I've been (too)...

Re: I'm Becoming Frustrated

Another vote for a good drum teacher. I find that I pay mine mostly to slow me down and stick with whatever I'm working on until I really, really master it. Ironically, to my surprise, I've found...
