Some photos, reaching back to about 10 years ago:
- a nice 14-18-24 Gretsch natural set they had in a club in 2008;
- a beloved red sparkle 1966 Ludwig downbeats, along with Zildjian A nd K's we rented for the Nero Burns album in 2013;
- a cheap set with a flaming ZBT in 2016;
- and the same set, rewrapped in orange glitter, more recently :) Note: the 16 floor in front of the 14'', as the sound guy thought I don't need two and only miked the 16'''.... so I used the 14'' as a beer and set list tray :(

In my youth I was always wondering if a drummer could be the main one in a band.
Now I have become an adult and decided to make my drum show where only I will be the main in the group!

My #One Man Band# :p

a fellow amedia player i see! :D
Indeed! I've been playing them for 10 years - zero issues, & they still deliver everything I need. I have 3 sets that give me choices + others. My main gigging set is made up of a few series, including a couple of custom pieces 24" ride, 17", 17", 20" crashes, 12" splash, 14" hats, & a custom 24" paper thin china that comes out to play only occasionally. I have another set of Old School series that are dry & short 24" ride, 16",18" 20" crashes, 15" hats, and a Ahmet Legend set that deliver beautifully at low dynamic 20" ride, 15", 17", 20" crashes, 13" hats. I have a few pieces that I can add if I wish - 22" crash, 8" & 10" splashes of various series, and 22" ride, 17" + 19" crashes in Kommagene series for effects.

I like all the closer pics are backside and far pics on frontside. The photographer is a genius-you all look thirty years younger. LOL. hmmm Drummers just get no respect. I remember I was the man behind the curtain in one gig-I was tempted to bust out in full Oz-maybe wear a cape and a top hat all sparkly.

My pic is in my avatar, so I'll post one that better represents the real me: bumbling, stumbling, confused, and perplexed. Actually, my wife snapped this photo immediately after I'd discovered that I'd just ruined a set of motorboards for my Altec speaker build by using the wrong template. Do you know how hard it is to find MDF that is 1.5 inches thick?

Some cutting tones in there, but a ton of body too - great setup!

Now that's a bummer - great shot though.

You should have busted out! ;)

These "photo's" are actually all screen shots taken from video. If I had to rely on actual photo's of me playing, I'd be even more invisible than I am now :(

Well.. I'm Mediocrefunkybeat aks MFB aka Duncan Taylor. I turned 17 this month and I've been playing the drums for 3 years now. I hail from Gravesend, Kent, England. It's an awful place with two claims to fame. i) Pocohontas is buried here ii) Iron Maiden used to play here in the 70's. In two bands, 'The Family Mystery' and an unamed metal band; although recently I've lost motivation to work in a band.









These range from 8 months to 2 years old, it's me though. No decent recent ones on my photobucket account.
You would expect a town called 'Graves - End' to be dynamic, youthful and fizzing with energy, surely? 😄
