Default That`s me Michael Zagon

Father Charly Wiltshire (died 2005) put the foundation-stone of his impact things the career, so to Michael Zagon, to be which knew to inspire its son as large swing and buddy rich fan in the infancy for this kind of music. Thus it appeared for Michael already very early that he would probaly strike the drums. A kindersnare which its father gave him to the birthday, marked then the actual beginning of the efforts of the young Michael to bring it sometime to the professional drummer. Into which musical direction this striving would go mainly determined then a LP which gave to hear Michael's sister Christel it a daily, and which its entire musical conception of the world with a mark placed completly on the head: Made in Japan of Deep Purple - polarized, with the great drumsolo of Ian Paice The MULE. At school Michael could later, instead of participating on the religous education, to visit a music teacher, who gave him its first impact things instruction. First live experiences and soon then also the next milestone in the career of the engaged Drummers followed: The first studio recording. This brought Michael then also to a hurdle: Click-tightness in Drumming!! Since this experiences Michael plays both with its exercises and in the studio exclusive with a clicktrack or a loop. By enthusiastic and hard training it succeeded to Michael within short time to be applicable by its clicktight at any time and everywhere also without long samples with it unknown musicians. Michael lived several years in Berlin. During this time he dedicated himself to the most different music styles, from avant-garde (easily on a drumkit made of metal) to skirt / pop (singer- songwriter) Also it parallel to its own commitments and his training, took further instruction with various teachers.In the last years Michael dedicated itself to among other things different volume projekts, did however never to take also further with the most different teachers instruction always anxious, to become acquainted with new techniques already well known techniques to improve and its personal style further develop. This culminates momentarily in the attendance of the Ecole de batterie, who teaches the D' Dante Agostini school.For over one decade Michael is active also as impact things teachers.

Education: Music-School Berlin Kreuzberg, Buddy Hoffmann, Andreas Griefiengholt, Uwe Petersen, Sven Kopatz (Ecole de Batterie Osnabrück) workshops with Steve Smith, Chester Thompson, Dom Famularo.

Name? Jody LeCompte
Age? Eighteen.
Been playing for? Music - 4 years, Percussion 2 weeks
Origin of username? It's my name, I'm just not terribly creative.
Top 5 drummers? Drummers: Steve Jordon, Steve Gadd, Jack DeJohnette, Chris Coleman, and Tony Rooster, Jr. Percussionist: Bobatunde, Daniel Sadownick, Tim Donavan, Arturo Stable, David Silliman
Make of drumkit? I don't play kit. My djembe is a custom build by a maker located somewhere in jolly o' Africa. I was introduced to him through a percussion graduate aide at the local university.
Make of cymbal? None, but I've got a piggy bank for a Sabian HXX to do some mixed percussion.
Where do I practice? I do most of my practice mentally. I practice my heel-toe anywhere with a flat surface. Everything else takes place in the attic at home.
Am I in a band? Two at the moment. A Primus meets Peeping Tom style band in which I play guitar and djembe, and an acoustic side project that I play fretless bass in.
Covers or originals? Either or. I'd be anal to feel stronger about my work than anyone elses
What style of music? Anything really. I have a weird trait of listening to entire albums because I like one cymbal the drummer uses or a singer strikes my fancy when they use their falsetto. Predominately though I'm just into jam and groove oriented music. Gospel, R&B, Jazz, Blues, and Funk.
Where am I from? NOLA, Louisiana.
An odd fact about myself? I get my days mixed up and come off as a compulsive liar because of such.
How did I begin drumming? I started playing bass at a pretty young age, then later picked up guitar. I was always more fascinated with the rhythmic possibilities of playing melodics and focused less on the actual notes. My studies ran deeper and deeper and ultimately I came straight to the source. Percussion. I was sitting down to lunch at a friends house and he mentioned having a friend whose business partner works in Africa buildings djembes. I pulled the trigger and ran with it,

Age. 45.
I've been playing drumset for approx 30 years. Percussion for 20 years.
Favorite drummers. Steve Gadd. Buddy Rich. Tony Williams. David Garibaldi. Harvey Mason. Mike Clarke. Ziggaboo Modeliste. Al Jackson jnr. Elvin Jones. Dennis Chambers. All the James Brown drummers. Too many more to name. These guys just came to mind.

Favorite percussionists. Alex Acuna. Changuito. Poncho Sanchez. Mongo Santamaria. Giovanni Hidalgo. Airto. Carlinhos Brown. Marcos Suzano. Again too many more to name.

I own many brands of drums including Pearl, Gope, Sonor, Ludwig, Yamaha, Tama, RMV, Le Soprano, Brady, LP, Bauer, African percussion, Afro, lots of no name ethnic stuff and all sorts of percussion.

Cymbals: All major brands.

I practice at home and at the school where I teach. I play congas bongos and small percussion at home such as frame drums, berimbau and noise makers. Drumset at the school.

Job: Freelance player and teacher for a music school.

I play all styles. Favorites are jazz, funk, soul, rock and latin and African.

Favorite take out is Asian food.

Odd fact. I'm a pastor.

Always drummed. Even with pencils as a kid. Possibly because of my mother's love of Gene Krupa.

Hello everybody and sorry my possible poor english grammary now and in the future. Finnish is my native lanquage, but I decide to come here, about eight months after I left from finnish forum, where I send a few messages and links to my drumming videos in Youtube.

After these nonsense messages:

age? - 39

how long been playing? - I started 2003, in autumn.

origin of user name? - That came in my mind after one schizophrenic vision few years ago.

top 5 drummers? - Upi Sorvali. And I will tell you when I know four others.

make of drumkit? - I started with New Sound drums, which I bought from small, local musicstore. After they fall apart after few years, I bought Tama Rockstar Custom's from Internet, and now my setup is:

Hihat: In front, Sabian 14" B8 (cable)
Snare: 14 * 5.5 Premier aluminium, about 1970.
Bass: 20"
Right side: Toms 10", 12", 14"
Left side: Toms 10", 12", 16" (Two repaired and painted NewSounds 10" and 12")

make of cymbal?
- 18" China AAX (repaired)
- 22" Ride AA
- 12" AA splash
- 14" B8 Thin Crash
- 16" B8 Thin Crash

So, mostly Sabian.
Sabian HH is my goal, but money and cronic shortage of it makes it difficult.

where do you practice? - Upstairs at Eric.

are you in a band/s? - No, and I believe I never will be.

covers or originals? - Mostly what radio plays.

what style of music? - Mostly what radio plays, radio channel selected from Internet by mood. From gospel to death metal.

favourite take out food? - Ruonalan Mämmirove, steamed. I can't say that in english.

country? - Finland.

one really odd fact about yourself? - There are so many that I can't make up my mind.

how did you start drumming? - My shrink told me that playing some instrument could calm up my destructive mind.

real name? Mark
age? 33
how long playing? played for about 12 years when i was a kid, just back now
username? its my favorite story by Tolkien
top 5 drummers? when i started playing as a kid - Lars Ulrich, but then i discovered Dennis Chambers, then some old vhs clinic of Terry Bozzio's,Steve Gadd is just great, but Benny Greb may be one of the most funky, off beat and inspiring drummers i have ever heard - the guy is just awsome!
drums? Yamaha Stage Custom Birch ( natural laquer finish )
cymbals? Meinl Byzance Traditional's
practice sessions? the lowly basement
in a band? no, but maybe down the road........
music stlye? i'm not good enough to have a 'style', i just like the offbeat and funky stuff
odd fact about me? i'm 33 years old and i still play with Lego
how i started? found my dad's old junker set in the garage attic when i was 8, started played a little snare in Sea Cadets at 12 ( and with enough begging, parents paid for some proper lessons at St. Johns Music), and later hooked up with a really terrible garage band ( i include myself in this description) but then just got away from the drums about the age of twenty, but getting my daughter involved in music ( guitar of all things! ) really inspired me - and so i'm getting back at it!

Hello every one nice discussion board here happy to join in, hope you'll all have me. I can't figure out how to put the question format on here so I'll just tell you some of the basic's. As if anyone really cares.... Anyway. I'm Timothy S, I chose my user name based on the city my drums were made in. I've been playing since I was 11, lessons the whole bit, But I did go through a spell were I didn't play for 10 years. I always wanted too just didn't make it happen. My influences are in 2 categories, core and current. My core guys are Bruford Baker and Bosio, My current's are Charlie Quintana (Mike Ness circa 1999) and Scott Churilla (Reverend Horton Heat circa 1996) I am currently playing an old American Slingerland that needs a re-wrap and re-chrome but it's authentic. I have cymbals like a bride, some old some new some borrowed some blue. I get to play on friday nights with my American roots music band, at a friends hall. We have a full compliment of sound equipment which makes it a lot of fun. We take a lesson from Mike Ness in his interpretation of old Country and pop songs of Americana. I started playing drums out of insatiable desire. When I heard certain songs I wanted to play the drums to them. My interest was/is always about the songs as a whole more than the drummers parts individually. If a drummer is doing something extraordinary, the song had better be too. I don't eat take out and As an odd fact I guess I like the under dog. I prefer Epiphones' to Gibsons', old,old tube rigs to Marshalls', and old school drums to modern marvels.
