    Drum gods set list....

    yeah...cause you would also have to find other players who can play all of their non drum instruments just as well....I personally think the Karaoke style would be easier honestly. Give each drummer a hal hour to get set up, play what they can, and get off stage. I also don't think a...

    Drum gear you don't like the looks of but you like the sound of it

    ugh....North drums - at least the marching ones - were made of fiberglass if I remember correctly....awful sound; dumb look and stooopid heavy. They also had this really nasty smell when the fiberglass got hot in the summer....

    Old people being cheated by their children

    dude....THIS is not only THE KERNEL of all the problems in America, it is also a truth that most people can't handle... the parent is the ULTIMATE and FIRST teacher. All children's mannerisms, reactions to stimuli etc are formed in the first 3mos to 2 years BY WHAT THEY SEE AND HEAR THEIR...

    yep,, I have thought for a long while now that when it changed from "We The People" to "I The Person", things were going to fall apart. I think my generation - GenX - is the one who started all off that....
