    American football!!!

    funny, cause I think American Football is one of the easiest sports to understand, and rugby is the hardest. Rugby is just a bunch of guys pushing each other until someone gets too tired and the scrum falls apart, than someone pops out with the ball, and it is a free for all until the ball is in...

    What ultimately made you decide on the brand of drums you play?

    is that your actual set? That is the EXACT same set the drummer in my thrash band has...color, sizes, reso head...everything. His is birch/bubinga.

    What ultimately made you decide on the brand of drums you play?

    My first real set was my 1994 Pearl Master Custom Maple. I loved the way Omar Hakim's Pearls sounded at the time, so that was some of the draw, but I also love(d) Pearl marching drums, and by way of my involvement the marching world, I knew a lot about Pearl, so when I saw the Master Custom...

    I’m worried that live music is over

    yep...I will probably be the first to go if civil unrest happens...I am a middle/high school band director. I have lived homeless before though, so the idea of escaping urban centers and going rogue in the wilderness is a possibility. I am not convinced that it will come down to Mad Max style...

    I’m worried that live music is over

    we have been playing together long enough that we could probably show and hit it on the fly...we have not practiced since February, but hell, it is just simple swing and blues. I use brushes, and rarely play anything that is more than a simple stewing 2 and 4 at around 100bpm. We do...
