Mick Tucker

I'd like to know why Mick Tucker seems to be one of the forgotten greats? He was such an awesome talent and I find it sad that no one seems to know who he was. Sadly he passed away with little to no...

Re: Double bass pedal: right or left of hihat ?

I've got my rack toms to the left of my kick so my hi-hats are pushed out a little further which gives me lots of room for the slave on the right. If what you do works for you who's to say it's...

Re: Your hall of fame!

Here's a shot of the cymbal clock. Nothing fancy. I picked up some clock parts a craft store for $10.00, coloured them with black marker, drew on the numbers and there you have it. The cymbal is a...

Re: Your hall of fame!

Yeah, I'm guilty of keeping old beat up heads and sticks. I've got a cracked cymbal that I made into a clock. I've got a ton of small drum parts, especially from pedals. I collect felt spacers for...

Re: Drummers vs. other musicians

Hey Guz2, I find your statements funny as hell epecially since you fancy yourself the #1 Motorhead fan. I think Lemme pretty much runs the show.
Anyway, I'm lucky enough to work with a guitar player...

Re: I want to see the drummer, not the band

Most shows I go to I primarily watch the drummer anyway. We all know the drummer does more than the other band members anyway, hahaha. You may not get the chance again so I don't why you shouldn't go...

Re: Any punk drummers that anyone likes?

Clem Burke is definitely one of my faves. Although I don't think Blondie was really all that punk. I think they were just lumped in due to the time and place they came out of. I'm also a fan of Paul...

Re: John Bonham

The Crunge still blows my mind. I think Bonzo and JPJ were the best rhythym section ever in rock. Just listen to the Lemon Song.

Re: Bad Drums

So what I'm seeing is that in other's opinion if you change the lugs on a cheap kit to more expensive ones that's going to magically change the sound of the drums? I don't think so. I've had to...

Re: Cymbal question

If you have to have a china, then find yourself a ride with a good crash to it. I have to agree with the people saying to go with more crashes though. Definitely big ones, 18" and up for sure.

Re: What makes a good drummer?

A good drummer makes you stop and really listen because what he's doing makes you think. It doesn't have to be complicated either it just has to be right for the music. Everybody is going to have a...

Re: Bad Drums

I believe any kit can be made to sound good. I really don't believe the drum material makes as much difference as people like to think. Look at Ludwig's see through kits in the 70's, Tommy Aldridge's...

Re: First Gig, Need tips

Make sure you can hear the bass player, if nothing else, stay in the pocket with him. Remember you set the tempo, don't worry about the others, just stick with the bass player. Relax, have fun and...

Re: Any Wierd Drum Habits???

I'm a stick twirler and most times I do it without thinking. I also almost always hit the rim and head of the snare at the same time to get that big fat crack sound. A habit I picked up when I was...

Re: Rock groups with distinctive drum sounds

Ginger Baker had a very distinctive sound with Cream, I personally don't like it but it's distinctively his. John Bonham's sound can never be mistaken for someone else either. Whether it was the...

Re: Drum stool position

Comfort is definitely number 1. I like mine a little higher so I can reach everything easier. I keep my snare and floor toms pretty high and my rack toms as low as possible too. If my stool is too...

Re: Hi-hat vs. ride

why don't you try mixing it up and play both at the same time. With them both on the same side it shouldn't be too hard to pull off. Or you could ride with one hand while doing hi-hat lifts and...
