Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

LOVED IT!

Kid took a boring predictable 2-4 pop tune and gave it a proper lashing on the kit...stick tricks and all...if I could have played that way at 18 I would do the same thing!

Hey...I'm still alive.

Sorry for the delayed "thanks" for all the replies. Got hammered at work for a few days.

Re: Cutting down drums

Like to see some answers on this myself...

Seriously considering taking my Rockstar Custom 20X18 to the table saw and taking it down to 20 x 14. Figure moving the lugs etc. is easy enough. Also...

Re: Timeless wrap finishes.

Any of the "onyx" wraps....but ESPECIALLY as done by Rogers in the 60s...

Personal favorite: Red Onyx

Re: StarClassic 100% birch
