Re: Favorite Song to Rock out To?

From one of the best rock drummers ever (and I am so unworthy of attempting to play along with this but) ...Santana's Soul Sacrifice from 1969's "Woodstock" Live. When I hear it I go all animal.

Re: Paiste 2002, B8 but why do they sound so good?

A possible reason why is that there are so many of them sitting around out there and pricing power is diminished. Although IMO they change slightly (not for the better or worse, just change) they 're...

Re: Do you feel sorry for today's kids?

Not looking for an argument but I agree with coolnames. My daughter makes me CD's of "todays" music every father's day. IMO her stuff (today's stuff) is nowhere close to the awesome 60's and 70's...

Re: What Haven't You Played Yet but Really Want To?

I wanna play Ringo's Ludwigs, 1963 ish? I want to slosh on his high hats and ride "his" ride whatever it was. (Not too much to ask, is it?) Next, give em up Dave... I wanna play your red sparkled...

Re: Musikmesse 2014

Re: My humble take on good drummers and OK drummers

Well if he is trolling it looks like somebody took the bait, hook line and sinker! " MAN-O-MAN, WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?" It's not like he insulted Ringo. (LOL) Angry ones... that's just a...

Re: stick in the eye anyone? not for the meek!

"Anyone else get hurt playing?" ...Just my pride when I dropped my stick while playing "Wipeout". (Sorry for your pain.)

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread


Tuning differences aside “most” snare drums sound about the same to me.(GASP!)

Tuning and head differences aside, expensive drum sets do not sound better to me. (WTF,...

Re: Should I start out with electronic drums?

After restarting my career with an E kit as a hobby drummer I think an e kit is a great idea especially if noise is a factor and you can afford it. But if I were to do it again I'd start with an...

Re: "Nobody cares about the drummer, except for the Rush guy."

I went to see the Musical "Rock of Ages" a couple of days ago. The set was staged to look like an old 80's Rock Club on the Sunset strip. The bandstand held 3-4 Guitar playing guitards but incredibly...

Re: Covers that you would like to play, already play or currently learning.

Daz, I love your Top Picks. I think you'd like mine. Jimmy I love the songs you listed however I agree with some of the other posts, for an average cover band I think your list is too hard, too heavy...

Re: Thinking about downsizing

Portability and big sound... Why not mic a small set? (That's a question and not a statement as I have no experience in either.)

Re: 4 Star General- Walk Don't Run

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed it and it put a big smile on my face. I too dropped the drums somewhere in my teens and went on to other things but there is always that little bit of regret.

Re: Can you tell the difference?

To me the real question about choice of wood is ... does it make a difference (not is there a difference). IMHO, I don't think so. Tuning, head and stick selection, playing style, miking,...

Re: Buddy Rich-The Last Interview

Great thread. It got me deeper into arguably one of the greatest drummers ever. It's easy to see why he was succesful, he absolutely did what he loved. I'm going to lift a glass to Buddy tonight.

Thread closing censorship make no sense to me. New things appear all the time on You-tube and elsewhere and it takes a lot of eyes to point them out. If you start closing threads, even those that...

Re: What is your focus, Chops or Groove

As a regular lurker and "fun" time poster I got to say that I admire those with the moxie to put it out there. Good job Jay. So IMHO groove sells. For most songs it's groove that counts most (let the...

Re: Anyone ever tried anything similar to this?

I'm asking for a left hand like that for next Christmas, but I don't think a year is enough time. NICE JOB! Where did you learn to use your left hand like that?

Re: Electronic DTX Kit Appraisal

What did this system cost new? A good quality Yamaha kit is not cheap. I'm just guessing but I'd start around half of what I paid for it. Which would be far more than a couple of hundred dollars. The...
