Re: Summer musical 2014: Bat Boy!

OK I get it !

I hate those theater orchestra pits where the orchestra is way down below the stage.

I enjoy watching the action on the stage.

Re: The Stick Trick that Confuses All of Your Friends

It confuses me too.

Thanks for the lesson, but I'm too old to learn it.

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

It seems that a person can become famous around here by posting something stupid.

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

I think Larry's comment was the best.
"Rule #1 in dealing with audio engineers, don't peeve them off."

Apparently, we don't know what the original posters' point was.

I thought this question was for us poor guys.

Re: General overall "workhorse" kit choices.

Hello there !

Number one, get rid of that car. Drummers need bigger vehicles.

Number two get rid of that 26" kick drum. You are moving too much air.
Get a 22" or a 20" for more tone and...

Re: Back pain while drumming

Re: Leave Me Alone Please
