    Finally a great throne that doesn’t weigh a ton !!

    Thanks, will check it out. Since getting the Yamaha Crosstown HH stand, my throne is now the single heaviest piece of hardware in my bag!

    I did an interview (a career in drumming)

    Made it all the way, very good! Love the part about "it's not who you know, it's who knows you" - I've been saying that for years! :)

    I did an interview (a career in drumming)

    What I've heard is great! I'm listening in sections, but I'll make it all the way through!

    Last gig on drums for a long time?

    If the players are dedicated to their instrument, and the band is any good and makes a few bucks, and if it's fun... there's no reason this relatively small hiccup should cause the band to split.

    Last gig on drums for a long time?

    You're lucky to have had gigs at all! I'm in Los Angeles, playing with 3 bands full-time and subbing with 2 others, and I haven't played a gig in over 6 months (March 10 was the last one!) It'll all come back though, just a matter of time. Career musicians and part-time players will be back to...

    Soultone Vintage Old School 1964

    Masterwork originally made all of the Buzin (pre-Soultone) cymbals, and is now one of three foundries making cymbals for Soultone. As with most cymbal brands, many of the Soultones sound nice. And I always advise buying the cymbal that sounds good to your ear. But you first need to hear a...

    Cosmo Clearwater Revival

    I always liked CCR and appreciated his drumming. Nothing really remarkable about it, just always the right parts and a nice feel. I guess nailing the simple stuff is remarkable enough. :) I saw them as Creedence Clearwater Revisited about 20 years ago in Cabo San Lucas, on the beach for a major...

    My snare likes cheap heads and snare wires

    My Black Beauties sound best with the stock Ludwig wires, which are akin to the Gibraltar $10-12 models. 😮

    Practicing, learning, and growing as a drummer/musician is just the means to an end. That end is playing with other musicians. That is, playing songs. There are only a handful of drummers who are exceptions to that outcome - Terry Bozzio is a prime example. But don't forget that he also played a...

    Why do you Play?

    Simply because I enjoy playing the drums. I have no musical or artistic or spiritual agenda to go with that - I just like playing. So I enjoy every song I play, even the dreaded Mustang Sally and Brown Eyed Girl! I'm especially grateful that I make my living playing, and I enjoy the things that...

    Question for Ludwig experts:

    When the SS came out around 1961, Ludwig's "metal" snares were brass. So for a few years until Ludalloy was introduced, they were all COB. Ludwig dabbled with COB re-issues over the years, but I'm not sure if they were the SS model. One of my favorite snares is a 6.5" SS from that era, but it...

    Lost some precious stuff.

    I'm sorry to hear that. On rare occasions I leave my stuff in the car overnight, and I always promise myself to never do that again. This is a good reminder to us all.

    It's probanly a Spoxe, basically a Roto-Tom frame without the head. Terry Bozzio pioneered those in the '80s, I think he even had two set-up like hats.
