Re: Great hip hop drummers?

Second Chris Dave. What a player!

Aaron Spears and Ron Bruner Jr are serious gospel chops players.

Amon Tobin's drum programming / sampling is a good listen.

Re: Better after time off?

Makes sense to me, speaking from my position of zero expertise. You come back after a break with fresh ears. The better we listen, the better we play.

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

He probably wants the band to be a boys' club (use of "boys" wasn't deliberate at first, but it works in context :).

Quite possibly he was trying to escape the women in his life or maybe he was...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

It's true that bar band scene is a step behind mainstream society - bar bands have long worked amongst society's underbelly. It's the roughest part of the music industry and naturally male-dominated,...

Then there are bona fide dinosaurs, who will hopefully go the same way:

Re: Ok, do your worst ;)

Andy, seeing you and hearing you chat brought back good memories of London :)

I'd be even less comfortable than you were if put in that position, so I can't judge.

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

There's an art to rejecting morons. Back in the day I found asking him all about his family, as though I was actually interested worked best. Once you get them (reluctantly) thinking about their mum,...

Re: I think I'm losing it

I sacked myself from backup vocals from my old band years ago due to bad GORD (http://www.mydr.com.au/gastrointestinal-health/gastro-oesophageal-reflux-disease). My voice quickly became huskier and...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Late to the party here. Yup Madge, getting the second class citizen treatment is galling. We all know that a certain percentage of people are assholes.

I have to say that my treatment by men in...

Re: Why do listeners move on as they get older?

We look for different things in music.

Novelty, stimulation, excitement, inspiration, amusement, reassurance and comfort (nostalgia), resonance with current feelings, social lubricant /...

Re: What makes music classic, timeless?

Overdone melisma is the vocal equivalent to shredding, as is fast rapping. It also often sounds pretty bad, being more impressive than expressive - and probably heaps of fun for the performers. So i...

Re: What makes music classic, timeless?

Multi faceted question.

I would say exposure is key. A great deal of incredible music is not heard, both then and now. "Classic" and "popular" are not related to quality.

I also think Larry...

Re: Stupid Invention

When I think of all the useless things available on the market, I'm not sure I have a problem with this. At least it's drum related :)

With development, better patches and a drummer not intent on...

Re: Jeez, Phil...

Bummer about Phil. Fingers crossed that things work out better in the future for him.



Col Burgess would be another theoretical possibility. I hear that he is still a Rock of Gibraltar kind of...

Re: so my band wants to do top 40s...

When you start out it's good to try everything. Plenty of time to become a grumpy old person who says no.

Re: Phil Rudd

+1.

What got me wondering is how the article says how Phil has "been in trouble before" and then refers a weed bust in 2010, as though it's a sign of bad portents - not exactly objective.

Re: Deceptively cool and challenging drum tracks...

Agree James. Chris Isaac has a crack band. Kenney Dale Johnson is a classy drummer.

Beatles songs are notorious for being harder than they seem.

Anything with Jim Keltner on drums - whatever...

Re: I jammed with people I didn't know!

Sounds really fun, Madge! Welcome to the wonderful world of improvising :) I agree with Aeolian, jamming is the best fun if you find people who can give and take.
