Re: Marco Miinemann & Simon Phillips together

yes, it was. And you know Jobson doesn't come to New York often, if at all. This was a rare treat. Just seeing the 2 kits on-stage was awesome. Yes, Marco is amazing!

Re: my stage presence... help.

it all depends on just how important that is for you and what you're trying to achieve. I can think of four drummers I've seen that don't have a whole lot of stage presence, aside from their chops of...

Re: Buying a big ass drumkit v. a small high end one

agree wholeheartedly with Naigewron. If you play out a lot and don't have a drum tech a big kit, while it looks great onstage, is a lot of work to transport, setup and tear down. Plus, do you even...

Re: Emotion when playing.

THAT is one of the greatest feelings in the world. For those that have never experienced that feeling it is difficult to explain. I wish I could bottle that. I noticed that I have also experienced...

Re: Akira Jimbo

back in the 80's I picked up a vinyl album by a Japanese band named Casiopea without knowing anything about them but the cover looked interesting and it was instrumental music. They became one of my...

Re: 6 years of playing - have i lost my way?

I think both randrade89 and chazz are corrrect. Taking a short break to recharge your mental battery won't hurt and may help you come back with fresh ideas and a fresh approach. Also I do believe one...

Re: Lighten up on pro drummers guys.

zappafan, you make some excellent points, whether some people want to hear them or not. When you say music for the general public is not about technique you are dead on. If it was about technique...

Re: Most Under-rated Drummers

nice to see someone mention Mick Tucker of The Sweet. I was a huge Sweet fan back in the day and actually got to meet the band and have a photo of Mick and me somewhere. Another guy that might not...

Re: Most Under-rated Drummers

I was around when Cobham burst onto the scene and it was like "who the f**k is that?!?"
I had never heard such explosive playing at that point and he turned drummer's heads around. I guess I can...

Re: Most Under-rated Drummers

you know, as great as Cobham is I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to come across top ten lists that have drummers like Dave Grohl, Steven Adler, Travis Barker, Peter Criss, etc, but no Cobham.

Re: Most Under-rated Drummers

Really? As far as I know Billy gets lots of credit, even among rock drummers. The way he burst onto the scene one couldn't help but notice him and be in awe.
Two drummers I know for sure NEVER get...

Re: High-Hat Positioning

what I'm saying is you just have to try different heights, placements, angles, etc.
It's Ok to checkout other setups but because we're all built differently and move differently we have to find...

Re: High-Hat Positioning

not trying to be a wise-ass but I never understand posts like this. How drums are setup, tuned, etc, is a very personal thing and it's basically whatever works for you. I recently saw Steve Gadd and...

Re: Jeff Lorber CD

glad to help. One thing about Jeff is that he always has top notch musicians playing with him, especially live. I saw him at the Blue Note a little over a year ago and his drummer was slammin'! I...

Re: I started to play to music

"But I think that any young drummer starting out today should get himself a great teacher and learn all there is to know about the instrument that he wants to play."

Re: Ideal length for a drum solo?

Viperpercussionist- I thought your solo was just about right, and nicely done at that. Too bad we can't see you but you were kickin' it!

Re: Jeff Lorber CD

don't know if you own or ever heard Jeff's 'Wizard Island' CD but I highly recommend that one. Dennis Bradford's drumming on that disc is tight, funky, and crisp. The track Lava Lands is hot!! Some...

Re: Ideal length for a drum solo?

for a barroom gig I'd say 1 minute and absolutely no more than 1 1/2 minutes. That's more than enough time to make your statement.
