Re: Upcoming Concerts You Will Be Attending

Bo:

I, too, am disappointed that Adrian is not part of the KC2014 lineup. He is the perfect foil for Fripp and does a great job connecting with the audience, beyond his incredible music making...

Re: Old school rock bass drum setup.

The common set-up in the early 70s was to take the reso head and hoop off, one single strip of felt across the batter head right above or below the beater patch or a pillow / blanket resting against...

Re: The Speed Obsession

I think this is an excellent question.

Speed is not my strength so I am in the same position. Someone who either doesn't have speed or has it and doesn't feel the need to use it is Steve...

Re: The Speed Obsession

We had an interesting (to me at least!) discussion related to this topic at a music camp I attended last month. A small group of us, mostly older, campers were sitting and having a nice chat with...

Re: Producers killed instrumentalists

I like Robert Fripp's analogy along the same lines when he asks "Would you rather have a 'hot date' (live performance) or a 'love letter' (recording of said performance)?".

Re: Producers killed instrumentalists

This is the most telling statement right there. 100% of the pop music I have been subjected to could (if it wasn't already) be made using drum tracks from Superior Drummer and that ilk and...

Re: Worst song ever

Even Terry Kath didn't think much of this song. I saw them in concert about 1970 and when they played this, Terry held one of the then popular "laughing bags" up to the microphone to provide backing...

Thanks Bruce!

Re: Help with my technique and mental pulse

There is tremendous value in using a metronome for practicing and I'll bet you used one in your violin wrangling days. Over time, the pulse is internalized and you'll have a better innate feel for...

Re: Liveliness in playing

Working with Tobis Ralph and Pat Mastelotto last week was a great study in contrast.

Watching Pat play is like watching Animal in the Muppets. He is all over the kit, big motions, great groove /...

Re: Best drummer in King Crimson history?

My response to the OPís question is the two-headed Bruford / Mastelotto beast in my opinion.

Iíve had the good fortune of spending time with Pat at two music camps in 2012 and 2014 (just last...

Re: Playing Out for the First Time in 40 Years!

Thanks guys, it was really exciting for me! There were a few clams but nothing likely too noticeable. Looking at photos my posture was horrible and I had the chicken wing thing going on but I'll...

Re: SonorMuseum Registering

Don't know if it will help, but if you wish I can post a message on the Museum board to see if there has been some glitch. Let me know.

Re: Musical artists whose death saddened you.

Everyone here has done a great job describing their perspectives for all the folks mentioned. The loss of each person named in this thread made our musical world a poorer place.

I would like to...

Sweet score Wildbill!

In a band I was in 40 years ago, our guitarist had a Gretsch Chet Atkins Tennessean. It was a beautiful looking AND sounding axe. He took a lot of stick for having a...

Re: playing along with stuff

Hi Lennythecat:

Welcome to DW!

I presume you mean acoustic drums. When I'm playing along using those, like Dr. Watso, I'll use my iPod but I'll jack it into my Simmons DA200S drum amp and use...
