My name is Thord, but Its pronounced with an (scandinavian letter), So I thought it would look cooler with two as. Problem is that people have started to call me Tard and Tardy boy.

Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

My username is an almagamation of "Bass Drum" and "Devil Driver" (groove metal band that I was thinking of when thinking about for inspiration for what the username should be).

Also I'm starting to train a quite a bit on double-kick speed and control, and the bass drum in a drumset can really drive a groove.

You can call me "BD"

A friend of mine called me goat duck (my last name is goetgeluck pronounced goodluck) and he started saying words that he thought my last name looked like. Im not sure how he got that from my last name but he did. I thought it was kinda funny so I chose it as a username.

Well, back in 6th grade, since my friend played guitar, I played drums, and some other guys who played "rock" instruments in the school, the new band teacher decided to create an after school rock program. well one day during that, it was just me and 2 of the usual 8 there and we were kinda jittery and went off task in between songs. So the band teacher Called me captain sticks, being a drummer, my friend Captain Noodles, and The other guy noodle-sticks(he played drums and guitar).

-hope that is not ambiguous

When I was in my teens I worked as a laborer on construction sites one summer. Most of my fellow workers were much older than I and of Afro-american decent, everyone on the job had a nick name, given by the boss man. Mine was to be, Rockin Big Daddy or RBD. When some of my school mates heard the tag, they couldn't let it go. So here I am.

Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

After I retired, completing 30 years as a museum curator, I started a heritage conservation consulting business. I was looking for a business name and one winter morning I was looking out my kitchen window into pasture below my house. In the middle of the pasture was a coyote rustling up a meal by digging in the snow. The cold morning light, as it was racking across the snow, threw a blue light on the animal. It actually looked blue in color. Suddenly I had my business name and my user name for the forum that I partipate in. Thus I have been the bluecoyote ever since. Oddly enough blue is my favorite color so I was an easy fit.

When I was a kid, my friends called me "Cornhole" because of my first name, but I did not think that that was suitable for a user name!

well my story sounds lame compared to others, but anywho bought a joey jordison sig snare cause i liked the sound, not a big fan of slipknot though. i had to start new accounts on various web sites and all the names i picked were taken, my recent purchase came to mind and ive never had it rejected since, never have i found a site where the name "joeysnare" was taken. I do kinda regret that it represents one of my possesions but doesnt really say anything about me.

My name is Eric. Good stuff, huh?

I would be worried about creating a user name after a band I was currently in, for the same reason I wouldn't write a love song named after a current girlfriend-it's just bad luck.

Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

when i started to look for other people to learn to play with they were surprised when they turned up to find an old woman. I did not want to put people off by starting email and ads with---"hi I am a 60 year old woman" thought most people would not read much furthur. so I decided to get the point over in my user name on musicians websites. And now I have just got used to it. Mind you some people must not look at user names or email addresses because people still got a shock.

My current band do not mind playing with a wrinkly, they are in their 20's and a good bunch of lads. Dont do their image much harm, people do not normally notice who is behind the drums. Often after a gig whilst mingling people are realy surprised when I say I am the drummer, they had not even noticed it was a woman, never mind an older one.

Lisbon '67 refers to when Glasgow Celtic FC won the European Cup in 1967 against Inter Milan in Lisbon, Portugal. Celtic were actually the first non latin team to win the cup. My avatar is Billy McNeil, the team captain, holding the Cup over Celtic Park.

Looks like it saved to me. I see it in your profile, it's a car with some rather unusual artwork on it. Perhaps you're looking for an avatar, not a profile picture. Like, for example.. my avatar is my dog.

I'll bore you all with the 'story' behind my username - it's a Seinfeld reference, any fans of the show?

Art Vandelay along with A.G. Pennypacker and Cal Varnsen were the 'alter egos' of George, Kramer, and Jerry in the show. I always got a kick out of these names and funny names in tv shows in general - especially Curb your enthusiasm and seinfeld. Happy Festivus everyone

It is, and now that i have announced what it stands for on the site www.THTST.com here it goes:

There was a contest to guess the album's title and to date no one was able to guess correctly. Instead of just coming out and saying what the THTST means, please listen to Led Zeppelin's In Through The Out Door song titled "All My Love". Pay special attention to the lyrics after the solo break.

(for DW'ers i'll spell it out)

Yours is 'the cloth', mine is...

The Hand(s) That Sew Time

Album sales have been quite good btw. (knocking wood......... blocks :) ) Feedback from listeners is very positive, with a divergence of those who want me to do another album with nothing but 'all-out' drumming and those who want me to do more etherial mellow melodic/tonal/textural 'aural' sounds. Just submitted the album to the Percussive Arts Society a few days back as well to get their feedback.

I joined back in 2006...I was 25 and was a chain smoker. My friends and band members called me nicotine (real name is Nick)...may have to change it though I quit on Halloween of 2008 cold turkey and haven't looked back.
