    Did you know that Alan White gave me a little head?

    B8 pros

    I have several Pro and B8 Pro cymbals, and I love them! They're a cut-above the B8 line. I suspect they're all made the same, but some are better than others and get the Pro designation. Cymbal companies often make cymbals, and then decide exactly where they fit (there are some obvious...

    What Are You Doing While Riding Out This Period Of Social Isolation?

    Oh, a other wise guy! Thanks, my personal book concept has been rattling around in my head for about 10 years. This book popped into my head only 3 years ago, but sat dormant until last December. Then it took off like Tower Of Power's first 11 singers! 😮

    What Are You Doing While Riding Out This Period Of Social Isolation?

    Well, I didn't exactly finish listening to my CDs (see earlier post) but I have been wrapping-up stuff on my photo book. I may have mentioned it elsewhere, probably Off-Topic section since it's not a drum book, but it is drummer-related: I shot the photos! It's early Al stuff in b&w, almost none...

    RocknRoller carts

    I have the R8 and it's been GR8! (haha) It opens up pretty wide, but I drilled an extra 'set' hole so it would fit fully set-up into the back of my Odyssey. It goes in as-is and saves a little time not having to open and close it. It's the last thing to go into my minivan and then of course the...

    Evans ST Dry Snare Head

    Absolutely! I have it on a couple of snares that would howl with my go-to ST head. Not really resonance, just a long note for some reason. I couldn't seem to out enough padding on the snare to stop it. The ST Dry head cured it! Of course it can be used as a batter on any snare, but it is a dry...

    Learning Songs as the New Drummer

    First, find out what it pays. 😮 I know very few musicians who can turn down work on principle.

    Learning Songs as the New Drummer

    Ah, you're right. In that case, same approach - the new drummer would be expected to create parts for future songs, but not to re-write existing material (unless specifically asked to do so.)

    Better to be diverse or specialize?

    Let's curtail the attacks.

    Learning Songs as the New Drummer

    What do you do with parts that they played that make musical sense, and that you like? Do you change those just because you can? Let's put it this way, nobody will chastise you for playing the parts (unless they specifically asked you not to.) You cannot go wrong with that approach. It's not...
