    Upcoming Netflix Documentary on Drummers

    The Perfect Movie

    Any votes for Inception yet? A Christopher Nolan masterpiece. Hans Zimmer's soundtrack is gloriously apocalyptic and a must-have for any soundtrack aficionado.

    Thoughts on Phil Collins

    Not sure I agree with that transcription of Wot Gorilla. Where are the ghost notes before/after the snare hit on 3; they give the groove texture and a much funkier feel. Without the ghost notes it's almost a completely different groove

    RIP Joey Jordison

    Stewart Copeland was a huge fan of Jordison’s abilities, daring to put him on equal footing with Buddy Rich: Buddy was the Mozart of the drums. I would say that he and Joey Jordison, of all people, have taken the technique – the finesse, the detail – to the highest level. And in both cases...

    Olympics Anyone?

    IOC rule 50 specifically bans protests on Olympic sites including medal podiums. There was a slight variance of that rule for this Olympics where athletes can express their views in mixed zones, press conferences and during interviews, as well as prior to the start of competition.

    Simple songs that are more interesting upon analysing them?
