    Did Derrick Pope pass away?

    Hope I am wrong. I seem to remember a while back that he was in bad health and now I cant find anything on him. His last vid on youtube was in 2009. In the last vid he had lost a ton of weight. Hope nothing bad happened because I sure loved his videos and wonder why he all of the sudden stopped...

    Something I just don't get

    Is it just me or do these drum solo sessions where there are two or more drummers all playing at the same drive you crazy too? It looks cool seeing two or three famous drummers all playing at once but to me it gets old real fast. Usually when there is more than one drummer the air gets taken up...

    What is your focus, Chops or Groove

    I focus on both because I think they both matter. Sometimes you need a Bernard Purdie groove to uplift the song and other times you need a Buddy Rich single stroke roll to push the song and lift the band up. Just depends My two favorite drummers are Bernard Purdie and Buddy Rich. I could never...

    Does your gear HAVE to be the same brand or do you mix/match?

    I was reading another post and saw someone talking about that they are obsessive/compulsive when it comes to buying the same brand of gear so I wondered if others felt the same way. I am in the middle. Except for the snare, my drums (toms, floor tom and bass) have to be the same make, model and...

    Seinfeld & The Buddy Rich Tapes

    I ran across this and thought some of you might enjoy it. I never looked at the tapes in a comedic way but after Seinfeld gives his point of view it seems pretty funny. I love that line "you wanna go outside AND THEN YOU"LL SEE WHAT IT"S LIKE".
