Their debut album spent something like 76 weeks on the billboard charts - went triple platinum and was all over TV and movies including The Skulls, Twilight, Always be my Maybe, and Varsity Blues - something like 40 movies altogether.
I've met Johnny Rabb a couple of times - we're the same height - so based on that information alone, I'm sure I could get the gig. Unless they require one-handed rolls...which if memory serves me, there isn't much of in their music.
The real problem I can see is the touring schedule...have been...
It is not actually! I just can't get it to stay in tune. I tried leather washers thanks to another member of this forum that actually lives in my town and gave me a bunch - but I'm going to try some kind of lug locking device next.
This is too many pages to sift through - but those were (and arguably are) some of the best drums ever made. At some point, I'd still love to get a bop-sized kit from the glory days of Crav - hopefully, paired with Spizz cymbals.
My band rents an awesome spot on our local main street where we have our gear. The back, back has a fridge and storage for tons of stuff, there's a mid point where we set up the recording/mixing gear / the main room is split into a studio that all of our gear set up and a great lounging area...

When I was younger I made the cardinal mistake of ordering a set of cymbals without trying them. Just based on reviews alone. They were all Sabian AA's.
I don't remember the models specifically but 14" hats, 16" crash, 20" ride.....I hated every single cymbal in that lineup. I've never...
The first time I ever saw him was on the Burning for Buddy VHS tapes way back in the day - he was SO full of life and exuberant and fun to watch....his track and playing remain one of my favorites on that whole project.
He's the coolest.
