By the way, i'm not saying i'm anywhere near as good as them, Hell No!

anyway - jose rules
Same here. Maybe that's because I've tried to turn my kit into a very similar one that Jose uses.

Anyways, what does everyone think about the new record (Light Grenades)?

I won a chance to meet the band on their current tour. I can't wait.

Default Jose Pasillas - Double Kick?

Has anyone else noticed the double kick part in the Incubus song "Anna Molly"? It is the first time I've heard a double kick out of Jose.

Are you referring to those doubles in the intro and middle section thingy? 'Cause that's likely to be done with a single pedal.

He only does it twice that I can tell. It's in the section around 2:55 into the song where he is hitting the snare on the 1, 2, 3, 4. It's around 3:02 or so and then again around 3:08 or so. Am I right?

I know the section, i'm pretty sure he uses a single. When i saw him live he looked like he had a mean right foot.

Hmm...well, I guess I'll have to see it too (like you did). I'm going to their show next Friday here in Houston. I really thought it sounded like double, but I could be wrong. If that is a single, then holy crap.

Well, it's not like he's doing full blown rolls. He's just doing assorted bursts of doubles (as far as i can remember) which give the illusion of a double pedal, I guess.

Enjoy the show, I was really digging the 20+ drum/percussion solo last time I saw them.

Will do. I don't know if they are doing that solo stuff on this tour, but I'd love it if they did. I'll be sure to watch for that part of the song when they play it and report it here when I get back.

It is indeed a single pedal according to people who have scouted out his kit in the recent tour.

He is one of my main influences as well..

I actually wanted to know where I can find interviews and maybe modern drummer articles of him breaking down parts in incubus songs? Anybody know?

Has modern drummer done anything on him and the new album yet? If not I am pretty surprised..

I have not seen anything in either Modern Drummer or DRUM! magazines as of yet. I too am surprised there has not been coverage of him in either one of those. I know Modern Drummer did an interview with him back when Morning View came out and DRUM! did one when ACLOTM came out.

Oh god, I love Jose, he's such a huge influence on me. He's probably the drummer that I want to play most like even though I do agree that sometime his technique is a little iffy.

I have now listened to the incubus album in full, and it sucks. Obviously just my opinion and what do i know, but it sucks. i own 7 hours of incubus and 3 dvds and this is by far their worst stuff. I t just seems lacking in something. Love the single but there is a lot of stuff on the album that i just don't get, the opening track especially, along with the title track.

I even dislike Jose's playing, i never thought i would say that.

Really dissappointed as i was looking forward to it so much but oh well. I just hope that this isn't a sign of things to come.

Bring back Dirk Lance!!!!! Ben kenny just isnt the same, i still think that he's good and really liked the stuff he did on Crow left of the murder but he's just not as funky.

Anyway, my 2 cents, ignore me at will. I'm sure plenty of people will love it.

Instead of killing, why don't you just check eBay out and see if there are any tickets for a show close to you. Might cost you a little bit, but it'll keep you out of jail. :-)

Default Meeting Jose Pasillas

Ok, so I am going to meet Jose Pasillas this Friday night (along with the rest of Incubus) because I won these meet and greet tickets. Has anyone else ever won these things? Do you actually get to talk to the band members? If so, what should I ask Jose?

It is here in Houston. I'm pretty sure Incubus is doing these meet and greets at all their stops on this smaller venue tour they're on right now. I'm still trying to think what would be the best question(s) to ask Jose, if given the oppurtunity. Heck, I wouldn't mind talking to his tech if I can't talk to him.

hell yeah i'd be happy talking to the tech. he'd probably be happier talking about all his equipment etc. i think jose probably gets very bored with it sometimes. i keep hearing that his cymbal setup has changed from the one on the internet, someone saying he uses rides as crashes etc. I know taylor hawkins does that so i wouldn't be surprised. the venue sizes they play can be pretty huge.

That's funny. I actually thought the contrary - that A Crow Left On The Murder was a disappointing album and that Light Grenades is very good. Granted, I still think there is something missing without Dirk. He really had that special touch on his instrument in Incubus' context, in my opinion. But this album is one of my favorites along with Make Yourself. And since we are speaking about Jose, I think his playing is tasteful on this last release and I really dig the sound and mix of the drums. To each his own I guess...

That was my exact thinking too.

As far as I know, this is accurate. I want to find out for sure. When DRUM! magazine did a cover story on Jose back in 2004, they reported all rides and no crashes. The cymbal setup listed on the Sabian website is definitely old.

I agree. It seems that on the newest release he scaled back a little on his playing, but it definitely still fit the songs well. By scaled back I don't mean that he played simple stuff. It was still intricate. I just heard more stuff between the snare, bass, hi-hat, and rides as opposed to tom stuff.

He's okay. Hasn't got many chops though. I quite like his band.

Im jealous man. I hope meeting the band goes well.

Anyway as far as the new album goes its true hes scaled back a bit on his playing, his style is a lot more subtle this time around but I love it.

Its hard for me to rank Incubus albums, being that they are my favorite band.

I do miss dirk a bit, but Ben is the best replacement they could have found IMO.

Tomorrow is the show I am going to. I've been trying to think about what to ask. Any advice would be appreciated.

Ask him if he still smokes weed and what he thinks about the relation of Marijuana and music/drums

:)

I have always wanted to know his opinions on it.

I just finished watching ALIVE @ RED ROCKS, awesome!!! Jose, Ben, & Brandon to a triple drum solo followed by a solo by Jose'. For those that think that he doesn't have chops, you obviously haven't a clue. What is it with drummers lately? We all talk about playing for the song and what not, but then hack on each other for not having chops? Stupid!!!

I meant no offence. I too have that DVD. I was simply leaving an honest opinion. Not trying to bring him down. I think what he plays on his songs is good. He reminds me of a cross between Copeland and Bonham. He's just young and has room for development.

Well, I got to meet him last Friday night. It was awesome. The whole band was super nice. I only got to talk to Jose for a couple of minutes, though, because the band was running late. I did get a picture with him, so that was cool. All in all, it couldn't have gone better unless I could of had more time to talk with him.

Well, the article isn't until next month, so I don't have it yet.

Like I said before, I really didn't get to talk to him too much because the band was running late, so the powers that be moved us along pretty quickly. I just told him that I appreciate what he does and that he is one of my biggest influences on the kit. He said that was awesome and asked a little about me and told me that as long as I am having a good time with it then that is what matters.

Easiest way, go to post a reply, Click the Paperclip thing in the menu and there you can manage attachments. Hit browse on the 'Upload a file from your Computer' section and then upload.

Once it's done (the file will appear lower down in the box) close that manage attachments window and then click the paperclip again to see your file in a dropdown menu, click the name of the file and it'll automatically include it in your post (you'll see the code [attach]numbers[attach])

Alternatively, upload it to a site like www.imageshack.us and then get the URL (the web address for the uploaded picture) and then click the little insert image icon in the post menu and add the URL of the picture there to insert it in the post.
