Especially in how I approach setting up the drums and shooting for maximum comfort, as a drummer who needs all the help in being as comfortable as I can get, your phylosophy behind it has been invaluable to me.Your DVD is definately a "Stranded on a Desert Island", "the house is on fire, what do I save" scenario for me :)

Thanks again for being such a wonderful educator and down to earth person. Hopefully some day I'll get a chance to meet you in person or catch a clinic, but unless you're in the middle of Massachusetts along Rt. 2 somewhere, I doubt it :)

Take Care - Rob Richard
Thanks Rob - feel free to let me know if there is anything that I can do for your helpful endeavors!

ON a sad note - I am sorry to say that original Knack drummer, Bruce Gary passed away on August 22nd.

here's a link:

I was a guy that replaced him on their record, Serious Fun and, while I didn't really know him well, I think this is a loss for our drumming community. Might have to play a little My Sharona for him at drummerLive!
