Re: Danny Carey
On his snare - I think in an interview with Danny’s drum tech he said that he has his snare head tuned really tight. If you notice in some photos he has a spare snare sitting behind his kit just in case he breaks the head on the edge of the snare. I guess playing those paiste snares doesn't help it too much.
speaking of carrying an extra snare, i saw danny carey at a volto show at the knitting factory and he broke his snare head in the first 20 minutes.
if you or anyone doesnt know about volto and live in the LA area you should go to this site ( myspace.com/volto) they play shows at the baked potato and the knitting factory from time to time. its a chance of seeing danny at a small venue. i got up to the front and was onlyh 5-7 ft away from his set, truly an experiance
I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow
