    Geddy and Alex together again

    Whatever Geddy and Alex have in mind, they'll have plenty of time to put it together. Don't see bands doing any kind of touring for a while yet.

    I'd like to hear them play "The Macarena", might be too low for Geddy to sing though.

    Geddy and Alex together again

    I think Dennis Chambers would be interesting. His groove and chops would for sure bring a different flavor to their music.

    RIP Ralph Peterson

    I always enjoyed watching his videos, his passion for drumming combined with his sense of humor and pleasant personality drew people to him. Not to mention the great career he had performing with countless legends in jazz. My condolences go out to his family, he still had a lot to give...

    Negative effects of positive feedback.

    Yeah, you could be right, he was an experience to deal with. Strange for a guy in his 40's to go on like that.

    Negative effects of positive feedback.

    I knew a drummer who had the reputation of people saying "He's a great drummer, just ask him!". He even went as far as to rate himself as 1 of the top 20 drummers in North America in addition to telling other drummers they sucked without being asked for his opinion. Maybe he got too much praise...

    Great drummers can play it all

    I heard Dennis Chambers say in an interview once if you want to be versatile you don't have to master every style but should have a working knowledge and understanding of it.

    How Perfect Is Perfect Timing?

    I know some musicians who think they have perfect time and can tell the slightest variation in tempo but struggle with a metronome. Strange how they won't devote any time to analysing or developing this part of their playing.

    Good job! You have a nice flow with that groove, looks like a lot of fun to play.

    Anyone here tried MeetHook

    What happens if the conversation turns into an argument? Does the rate go up?

    Anyone here tried MeetHook

    Just out of curiosity has anyone here tried this website. You can book a phone call with famous musicians for a fee. I guess this is the new thing, the rates are not cheap it's $8.33 per minute if you want to book a phone call with Steve Gadd, the other artists have varying rates, the cheapest...

    Just a little rant about house kits

    They wouldn't let you change over a lefty setup? Sounds like they don't play nice or believe in co-operation.

    Just a little rant about house kits

    I played house kits at Casinos, one thing that never ceases to amaze me is guys are always stealing the cymbal felts and cymbal stand wingnuts. The hi hat clutch usually looks like it's been run over by a car. I now have to carry replacement felts and wingnuts if I know I have to use a house...

    Lefty drummers unite! Also, who are best lefty drummers?

    That's cool! I did that once at a jam session where the drummer was left handed and played a left handed kit. I have enough independence and strength to play left footed bass drum so I played the kit in a lefty configuration. It wasn't bad but doing fills was weird, I was lucky nobody wanted to...

    Do you play a left a left handed kit? Sounds like it would work for you being left footed.
