    The Tree That The Apples Fell From / Joe Porcaro

    I have been watching many video's with Jeff, some I have seen many times already. I think we could all say he is probably someone we would like to have know. He obviously got it from his dad.

    Wonderful Words From Leland Sklar On Jeff Porcaro

    One thing Jeff says in a video he made on a Musicians Institute video is that he does not remember ever playing a solo. That sticks with me.

    Brian Blade - So Much To Appreciate

    Here is a link to a 4 tune set from station KEXP in Seattle. Great live performances from this station. What I appreciate in particular is the dynamic control and how his personality comes through so well in his playing. Intelligent, Joyful and warm. If you have watched this what elements do you...

    Snare Wires / Importance.

    ..Also, that was on Amazon, probably out of whack. With tax in CDN. it still can be 50 to 70. Anyway, it is a moot point for me since I am happy with what the drum came with in the first place. Cheers

    procol harum drummer bj wilson

    He is one of my all-time favorite drummers. I have a DVD of a Christmas concert they did on T-V, no audience. There are no ads on the disc but when they did one for the folks watching you see the band just waiting for their cue and then off they go. B.J. was phenomenal to watch on his wide-open...

    Who Are The Worst Drummers That Are Good In Spite Of How Lousy They Are?

    I think the topic heading is a bit misleading. You may be asking about drummers who keep it simple, solid, creative and musical. Quite honestly I doubt I would be listening to a band with a "lousy drummer" since chances are the band would really stink as well. A couple of weeks ago I watched and...
