The Allman Joys in about 1966; before they became The Hour Glass and then later, The Allman Brothers Band.

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

I thought it sounded very good! Personally, I think the drums, especially the toms, were a little low in the mix. Spoken like a true drummer, of course!

Re: Jim Gordon

Thanks for the link Larry! Very interesting, albeit tragic/sad, read! I was familiar with his work but did not know of all of the personal struggles and issues.

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

Not to belabor the point, but.......After going back to the video, there are numerous other videos/songs with guest drummers from that night. The "band" actually sounds better (recording quality,...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

I agree that the whole "band" seemed terribly unprepared and it sounded as such. You last point is exactly what I thought when I listened.......world class/famous drummer chosen to play one song...

Re: 2015 RRHOF inductees. Congrats Ringo!

Agreed 100% on Chicago! They should make it on their first 7-8 albums alone, despite/regardless of their major shift towards sappy ballads........

Re: How to handle this situation

As crappy as it may appear to many, mikel is dead on. It is his "business" and he is acting as an employer. It is not a true band as someone else mentioned, but it is an independent...

Re: When soundmen attack

Not sure of any of you have tried this (and I was initially skeptical!), but I have been micing my bass drum from the batter side for quite a while. it really gets a deep, full sound.

Re: so my band wants to do top 40s...

I have noticed over the years that many times songs that I really like to listen to are not always as enjoyable to play. Conversely, some songs that I really do not like or normally would not listen...

Re: Learning to play well on a 4 piece kit ....

I started/learned on an old four piece over fifty years ago and stayed there for probably fifteen years. I went to a five piece for another 15-20 years and much preferred it over the four. I thought...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Not sure what this means, but I think I agree!! My take on this is settle it like the old western days........Main street at high noon; bring your best drum sticks, dictionaries or whatever and end...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

I get what your saying Dr. Watso and I have been guilty of pressing that red button unnecessarily, especially when I was much younger! A majority of the music I play in one band could...

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Although it's true that restricting choices forces creativity, exercising voices choice, is in itself, a creative move. It's how it's presented within the music that matters, not the mechanism...

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

Agreed 100%! Every time this topic has come up on here, I have always felt this the best way to handle it on stage. As someone else said earlier, work on temp at rehearsals, hopefully this will carry...

Re: Losing a Cymbal Wingnut at Tangelwood Live

Although the sound quality is rough by today's standards, this is a great vintage 1970 show of what the original Chicago band was and not what most think of when their name is mentioned. They were...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

This wasn't directed at you specifically and I should have gone with my first instinct which was to not even comment. Yes, I have seen many creative drummers play on minimal kits and make wonderful...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

This statement could also potentially lead to the whole big kit vs. small kit thing. That is, a drummer who doesn't have a "full accompaniment of drums" is like an artist who doesn't have all of the...
