Todd, just wanted to say thanks for signing my DVD and throwing me a stick in AC at the borgata! It was a good show. Did you have any idea that Samantha Brown from travel channel was going to be there? Haha That was great! You seem like you're enjoying the tour. I noticed how you've been really throwing some really cool twists into the older songs you guys play every night. Its great how you play these songs almost every night and i can tell that you don't really get bored because you're constantly keeping things fresh with some different fills and odd time thrown in. I'm going to try to get you a clinic out here at a sam ash near me outside of philly. Jason Bitner was just here, Carl Palmer and Danny Carey were here recently too. How would i go about contacting your management about that kind of thing? You guys look pretty booked up all year, but it would be great if you could fit in a clinic out here in philly.

Hey "Philly Joe",

Thanks, man. I'm glad you enjoyed the show in AC. Yeah, we knew Samantha would be there and had a beverage with her before we went on for the last bit of he evening. Anyway, the clinic thing works best when the shop/dealer contacts either (in my case) Pearl or Sabian. They in turn contact me and we work out the date and details. If the shop is into it, well, it usually works out just fine. Haven't been to Philly for a clinic so I would be in to that indeed.

Thanks again for the kind words and hope to see you again soon--

Cheers from somewhere in NY,
Todd

Hey Todd,

My name's Jamie, don't know if you'll remember me... I spoke to you on myspace a couple of years back. I was at the last gig you did in Glasgow with Deep Purple. I was one of the guys bowing to you haha and you came and gave me and my mate a stick :D

Anyways, how you doing? Got any plans for coming back to the uk any time soon?

Managed to get myself in a picture with Lawrence and Ricky haha! You can see the stick you gave me too :D

Hi Todd !!

Could you explain a bit the fill you do in Tears of Joy, when the music stops and you blaze with a fill finishing on the R and L foot.. and singles strokes I think...

I have tried to get it going but I find it very hard...

Cheers Danny..

Hey Jamie--

I remember you! Sadly no plans to head to the UK. I'm hoping maybe next year. Hope all's well with you, man.


Danny---

If you are talking about the "Methods and Mechanics" dvd version, I think the lick in question is a 10 note figure. 8 with the hands, 2 in the feet but ends with 3 in the feet with crash at the end of the figure. The lick is over 2 bars of 13 with the snare accents like a 7 over 26....I guess! Hope that helps.

Bonzo--

Hope you enjoy the show tonight!

Cheers from Detroit,
Todd

Ok hopefully I can catch you again at some point then :D everything's going pretty well at the moment, just in the last 2 weeks of my drum degree! Just gotta finish writing up my dissertation then I'll be done completely!

Hope everything is going great with you and the band!!!

Hey Todd,
Great job with the Modern Drummer Festival. I just got the dvd set. That stinks about the dropped stick/knocked over computer! When the stick dropped and then you picked up the hot rod I was like "Oh man! I know that feeling!" Your performance was awesome regardless. The dropping of the stick just showed your ability to get out of a tight spot. Plus you seemed to actually interact more with the audience before and after songs, which I thought was pretty cool. Did the computer work after that?

Hey Todd

How are you?
I'll make it quick: Here' s my situation. I've exclusivly been practicing on my x-pad and foot-pedal contraption I built myself. I live in a dorm of sorts and there has never been a place to go for my drumset. So all I've been doing the past four years is RRLL, RLRL, then Methods and Mechanics came along ...you know the drill.
Now I get the feeling I lose touch with my drumset and I start lacking ideas around the kit, you know. I was wondering if I should consider spending some money on my actual drumset..for better shells (e.g.) and thus inspiration ...or should I think about getting an e-drum set so that I would be able to actually "play" more often. I don't know.

Maybe you can help me out here, Todd.

Cheers
Andreas from Bavaria





P.S. Good luck in Paso Robles

Danny---

Glad you worked it out.

Jamie---

Congrats on the degree!

Stan--

Thanks for the kind words on the MD dvd. It really was a great time, a great experience, and none of us are exempt to strange things happening during a performance. What can you do? The show must go on. Thanks for the compliment on the interaction. I wanted to have some "clinic" elements rather than just non stop playing, or a "performance" as it were. And yes, the computer works perfectly as I write now on the same one. Macs rule. No question!

Andreas---

That's a hard question. While it's great to have quality instruments to inspire, it might be more important to have a place you can actually play a real kit no matter the quality. You can still develop your touch on a mid level kit. Good cymbals are important--especially the ride cymbal. Bottom line is to play whatever you can whenever you can! It's up to your time and your budget. Again, it's a hard predicament and I wish you luck!

Cheers-
Todd

I was watching your video today and really enjoyed the part where you talk about the high hat, Ringo and Vinnie, and how they use certain motions to create a nice sound in the high hat. It was great that you really made a point for how Ringo's technique created a subtle and distinct sound and feel. Ringo is often quoted as saying he had the moves, the head swinging and what not. But you really showed how some of those moves were not innocuous and created some classic rock and roll feels. Great stuff ! !

Thanks, man. I'm glad you dug that "more subtle" part of the dvd. Paying attention to volume, strokes and overall movement on that hats really does have an effect on the feel. I appreciate your feedback!

By the way--for anyone interested---I played with Spinal Tap on the Jimmy Fallon Show tonight. It's on Youtube already:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY8HZy-fUYg

Playing with the Tap on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart tomorrow (7/28).

Great performance last night on the Jimmy Fallon show! I had seen Spinal Tap on Conan a few weeks earlier with Greg Bissonette on drums (also very good), so it was a pleasant surprise when they started last night and you were back there. Awesome drumming.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the kind words on the Tap/Fallon show. I had just an amazing time with these brilliant genius gentlemen. Wonderful guys---and they can really play! I just laughed so much everyday, it was such a pleasure. Thanks again for tuning in and for the kind words.

Leadfoot---

I don't think it was in the budget to have me killed. Thankfully.......

Chongzilla---

Never got to play Big Bottoms with those guys! Only Stonehenge, Back from The Dead, Sex Farm and Gimmie Some Money. Great stuff though. Thanks, dude.

Shoedaddy--

Stumpy's shoes are hard to fill..........

Thanks for the kind words, guys. They do mean a lot and they are truly appreciated!

Cheers from Newark airport during a massive lightening/rain delay,
Todd

I didn't know that you played with Spinal Tap until I saw the episode of The Daily Show when they played (at first all I saw was the Pearl set and the hands and I thought it was you). That is pretty damn cool.

Did you get to talk with Jon Stewart much?

Your playing w/ the Tap was great. I was disappointed you didn't follow the whole mantra and play a ridiculously large kit. Something overkill. In a funky color, too. Otherwise the playing was great.

Just said "hi" to Stewart. Jimmy Fallon was more accessible and chatty.

The supplied risers for each show was 7 1/2' by 6'.......so that's all that could fit up there. You bet I wanted 2 kicks and a gong drum. Thanks for the compliments!

No one has ever looked so badass behind a kit before.Are you just playing with Tap for tv or are you playing with them for some shows too if there doing more shows.Also what did you think of the Roots mostly Ahmir.

I played with those guys on the Tonight Show 9 years ago but Gregg Bissonette has been doing the majority of work with them. I just did those two TV shows in NYC. As far as I can tell, "Tap" is done for a while. The Roots guys were very cool and I enjoyed them very much. Thanks for the kind words, man.

Well, I think a rack like that would have been a tall order from S.I.R! (Rental company in NY)

Hey Todd,
I want to ask you something about your snaresound.

In contrast to your bassdrum your snare sounds very wide open. I think your wires on the snare are not very tight. How do you tune your snare, because I think your sound is quite interesting...? can you give some advises for a nice snare sound, from which dou you think is perfect?

Much greetings!!!
keep going your thing!!!

Chris

hey Todd, just to let you know that there was a lot of chatter about your performance on MD fest 08 in my circles, and I finally got to check it out on the dvd recently.

Surprisingly ( or maybe not ) I was blown away by your solo playing. Wasn't expecting that. It seem to me that you were phrasing in longer 'sentences' than the customary 8s, 7s etc..it was really really smooth and musical.

Question: Was it something you were doing consciously or was a lot of it spontaneous?

Once again, it was one of the stand out performances amongst a clutch of heavies....great job!

Chris----

I can't really say what sound is perfect because that begs the question: Perfect for what? I try to let the music dictate the sound of the snare. One constant for me is a coated ambassador on top and a hazy ambassador snare side and well as cheap snappy or Gibraltar snares. I'm not into the "designer wires" as they just don't do it for me. There's a brightness and a snap (to me) with the cheap wires. My opinion only.

I like a little "breath" behind the crack and some of that comes from not having the wires too tight against the bottom head---even if the bottom head is tight which it often is. Some times it's cranked even if the top is medium and open. It's true that for playing rock and certainly most backbeat based western music I like a pillow in the bass drum. I like the spike and if you have a good drum there will be nice inherent low end with and after the attack. I like that contrast. But again the tuning of the snare (from low and beefy to Stewart Copeland range) will depend entirely on the music. I hope I've answered your question and I appreciate your note!

Aydee----

Thanks for the compliments on the MD Fest dvd! I really appreciate your kind words. I talk a little bit about long phrases in my dvd, but to answer your question, I'm doing it consciously and spontaneously. Or really, improvising. I'll think in 4 or 8 bar phrases and sometimes longer with over the bar line ideas. I think of them as sentences is a way. Some sentences are short and some are quite long. I like that improvisational landscape and it keeps it interesting because I'll think of different ideas from night to night. I don't get to play like that with the band but if I'm doing clinics it's exciting to see what will come out of me. Some nights are "on" and some, not so "on." Then you can rely on what works---but I like pushing into the unknown. Those are the best nights for me. Thanks again for dropping me a note!

Bernhard---

As ever, thanks for your amazing site and all the great work you do for drummers worldwide.

Cheers-
Todd

Ha ! I couldn't agree more about the snare wires. I bought an expensive pair of those "designer wires" and they were awful !!! In 30 years I have never had that much of a snare issue ! I put my $13 Gibraltars back on and I'm leaving them on. There was nothing wrong with them.. I just gave into the hype of the "designer wires" I guess.

I saw you play in June of 1996 with Styx in Allentown , Pa. I wasn't a Styx fan but took someone that was to see the show. I was very impressed with your playing and the power behind it. It really made the music much stronger without taking away from or hurting the song. I actually picked up the live cd right after that show. You definetly stood out ... out of all the players I've seen and I have seen many but your performance that night still stands strong in my mind today.

Todd just got the DVD man and I have to say holy hell it's beautiful. I haven't been drumming for long for only two years and I can definitely tell it's helping me out. I am in a band right now and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind critiquing what we are doing? Unfortunately they are now the best recorded demos but we are enjoying what we are doing. Thanks for the inspiration brother rock on!

I agree on the wires. Others differ, but therein lies the beauty of what makes us all different. And thanks for the kind words regarding the '96 show. That seems like a long time ago!

Thanks for picking up the dvd and for giving me your feedback. I really appreciate it! I hope it continues to inspire creativity in your playing.

And some news:

Wow such great photos on your website. Love the ones of you and the bros. in the yellow striped plebe shirts. And what a cast of characters you have been photographed and played with. One question if I may. I have an 8 inch tom that can be a bear to tune and notice you have two. How close in pitch are they? Thanks again for your time.

Hi Todd!

Just wanted to say I loved your segment on the latest Modern Drummer DVD. You have awesome technique and a great sense of flow and dynamics!

Are you influenced by Deen Castronovo at all? Im actually not sure if its your playing, or just your looks/voice/mannerisms, but theres a real 'high energy' vibe that you give off that reminds me very much of him.

Anyway, if youre ever down Perth, Western Australia way, be sure to let me know and Ill set up a drum clinic for you!

Regards
Damien

You just made my day. I will most definately come out and say hello.

It's a pretty small shop though, do you know if you're playing inside of Gear or at another location?

Oops.....forgot to add this in the aforementioned clinic list:

West Music Coralville, IA. Saturday, August 29th 2-4 pm


Gruntersdad---

Glad you like the new site. The two 8"s on my live rig are very far apart. The first one (8x7) is tuned high, like a Phil Collins "gock" or barking sort of sound. The 2nd 8 (8x8) is tuned for a "meaty" normal 8" sort of sound. So there is a tremendous difference between the two of them.

DamoSyzygy---


I was really unfamiliar with Deen's playing until we did a Styx/Journey tour together in the U.S. back in 2003. We became pals and I think the world of him---and what a brilliant singer. Man. I'd love to do a clinic in Perth. I have no touring plans to make it down there, sadly, but if someone spearheaded an Australian clinic run, I'd be there as soon as I could. Thanks again, Damien!

Great, see you then! That's all the info I have presently. You can ring up the shop and ask for yourself I suppose. They'd know more about it than I.

Thanks!

Cheers,
Todd

Most of the distributors are playing their coins very close to the chest at the moment, so I cant see anything happening short-term either, but Ill keep my ears open :(

Ive gotta say, I like to run clinics as "Sabian" events, as I usually like to work closely with Ann McNally and the National Sabian wholesalers, Dynamic - Its just easy dealing with them - Great people!

We've had great success in the past with guys like Jojo Mayer, John Blackwell, Mike Portnoy, Kenny Aronoff, Tomas Haake, Dom Famularo - but admittedly most were already IN the country doing other events, so the hope is that perhaps one year you are able to do the Ultimate Drummers Weekend, or something of that ilk - and then I can steal you out to the West for a day or two :)

Hi Todd,
I am new to this forum and want to say how great it is interacting with all this talent. I became very interested in your playing when I became active on the Pearl forum.I am also a big STYX fan and saw the show in 96 at Glen Helen in Southern California. I have been rolling through all the different videos over and over and recently just saw your performance with Spinal Tap on the Jimmy Fallen show. Great work. You are a true inspiration to our craft.
Thanks for taking the time to do what you do.

I just watched your DVD for the first time, and it is great. Finally i feel like I've come away with some new ideas. I first saw you at a STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON concert a few years ago and was blown away. You seem to have an ability to get the absolute most out of every song, without ever sacraficing taste.

Anyway i've started spray painting Sucherman is God all over St. Louis...hope you don't mind.....wish you had a shorter last name....maybe just two syllables.

Chris---

Glad to answer, man.

Damien----

Times are tight, I know. Ann at Sabian is great and a complete pleasure to work with. I just don't see anything in the near future that would musically take me to Australia, unfortunately. Been there for a visit in '04 though. Hopefully one day.

Thanks, man. I really appreciate the kind words. And wow, Glen Helen seems like a long, long time ago but I remember it well. Glad you caught Tap on Fallon. I just had the best time with those guys.

Jon e--

Thanks as well! I really appreciate it and thanks for getting the dvd. And believe me, I wish I had a shorter last name too! No one can even pronounce it correctly........

OK, cheers from West Virginia-
Todd
