Re: YES on Tour in 2013

I'd rather listen to the Trans Siberian Orchestra play horrid Christmas songs than sit through a Yes concert. This board has the worst taste in music.

Re: BBC Documentary about Rock n' Roll - The Drummer

There is a problem though...drummers aren't a gender , race or nationality.
You guys are really comparing what , people of colour , woman and jews, have gone through...... with ....drummers ??????

Re: It's Official...

I guess it comes down to what you would define Rock and Roll as.
Why would NWA and Public Ememy be nominated ? It's really quite simple.
These guys were pioneers of the day. They talked about life...

Re: It's Official...

Of course I was speaking ( writing ? ) facetiously when I posted this , given the history of this forum and the fact that this has been a long running complaint for Rush fans.

Re: What should every very advanced drummer know? (grooves/beats, techniques, styles, etc... anythin

Whoa , that's right on, and very profound.
I've always wondered why guys like Dave Weckl spend so much time being this technically superb monster and then waste so much time playing boring music...

Re: Great drummers who should be more known

I seriously could not give a response to this without going into 20 pages....I've met and listened to so many guys that should be more recognized but sadly will never get anything but a paycheck.

Re: 30 Richest Drummers.

Not a whole lot of surprises. If someone would have asked me ...I would have said Phil Collins at #1.

Re: I am beginner, should I start with a single or double bass pedal?

I'm with Arky and Ageadm on this. If you're a beginner you will start by playing to the music you enjoy most...in your case Metal. Today's metal pretty much demands double bass.
