Hey Mike, everyone here should get a kick out of this vid of you seriously ripping it up in Anaheim back in '07. That day was a blast, and having Matt, Boo, Johnny Rabb and TFO and everyone else there was very cool.

Thanks Tim... the Extreme bands you're speaking about ARE the problem. They're not Financially realistic for me as a Canadian. Medical insurance is one of the main issues... but then on top is expenses for the travel of my gear etc... I don't think many Extreme Metal bands have enough budget to afford hiring outside of their country.

I would like to do something (circuit willing) metal orientated... but I can't rely on that any longer...

Any more advice is always appreciated... I know this is a big drumming community and would love input from anyone on board!!!

Mike

Start a serious drumming video blog on YouTube. Thats the place to be these days, get involved in that community. It would take time, but considering you're already pretty well known, it shouldn't take too long to develop a fan base. From there, you have tons of options.

I wish I had a magic answer for you Mike, but the truth is that I can't get hooked up either and my drumming resume is a lot less impressive than yours. I envy you man!

Hey Mike :)

Its nice to see a fellow canuck getting some spotlight :)

When i lived in Grande Prairie, i met a lot of guys from the east coast who were awesome players at their instruments, they said that the scene down there is really rough. Moving to BC helped me out personally, as vancouver is just a days drive away and has a good scene, so we get a lot of musicians playing here from there and they scoop bands to take along on with them.

To get attention, a lot of us on this side of things invite bands throwing shows and stuff to come jam, or check out band videos/sites .etc on their way through town, my band was offeres a spot on a week long mini tour next summer, with some guys from vancouver just because we hung around them, and invited them to our rehersal space for some tunes and beers, they liked what they heard and invited us along.

I guess play as much as you can with different people and keep up the you tube stuff :)

Hey Mike, you being the wfd and all I always wondered why you haven't put up a double bass tutorial, obviously you know what your doing and many people would be intrigued to hear about your approach from start to finish how you learned to become such a great double bass player. I'd love to hear your take on it, please upload some instructional videos soon, cheers brother !
