Re: Ginger Bakers Latest

You're right Bo. It's not called for to compare an old person's playing with what they did in their heyday, which is what I was doing. He's still out there playing good music and it's good to see...

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Looks like you're just "lucky", Martha. You ran into a right pair of pushy, selfish blighters right there.

The problem here is not the criticism - that's just their weapon - it's them trying to...

Lar, you are not suited to the military.

Re: Ginger Bakers Latest

Ginger's getting old and it shows. Good on him for still playing because it looks like it's a struggle for him these days. It will happen to us all, if we're lucky.

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Still, I think it depends on the feedback, Lar. Knowledge does not always come wrapped in good manners. Think of BBT - nerds are famous for undeveloped social skills.

Best to judge each piece of...

Haha - that was dry! I am so used to getting in trouble for some accidental foot-in-mouth behaviour that it always seems possible :)

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Musos never tell me things like that after gigs. Occasionally when I've posted videos online people have suggested that I could work on my left wrist. It's a fair point - my left wrist has all the...

Non-Phillipe :) ... last night I was looking at a Zappa Plays Zappa live video and thought back to my comment to you and wished I said "unless you are operating at elite levels". Great artists are...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

When I was in London I had the impression that Andy was bionic - powered by spicy food and beer :)

Excellent :) Towards the end she was singing almost exactly like I do!

Break a leg Andy!

Thanks, KamaK! Really enjoying that link. That and the Leeds concert are the bomb.

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

This hits the nail on the head for me, Mike. The reasons why we play vary from individual to individual - different ambitions and different feelings about what's the most enjoyable approach over the...

Re: Your midweek smile :)

You could fit two of him in that bass drum! The little uns these days are amazing. Give it twenty years and you'll have babies playing Vinnie licks before they're toilet trained!

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Philippe (? sorry, bad memory :), I agree with a lot of advice given here about:

1. Taking a break to freshen up
2. Finding someone to jam with / find a band etc.

It seems to me that, like me,...

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Good to see you, old bean!

Have to take your word on that one - sounded pretty jazzy to me but I'm pretty big on repetitive figures :)

Re: hi hat dis-assembly

Hi hat stands are a pain in the arse. You either have this inconvenient long thing and fiddly breakdown and set up.

I have not broken down a hat stand since 1975 but I'm no example for anyone :)

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Hi stranger - I was thinking Tony Williams too :) Not being so versed in jazz, I figured it was the low tuned toms.

He is more at home in this set than the last time I heard him play straight...

Re: EGO's

That is actually a big ego reacting to being incapable of feeding itself with big achievements, hence the control freak angle (a sign of extreme insecurity). I played with a bassist who was like...

Re: Name that rhythm

Didn't know it was called that - perfect name for it.

Former Genesis drummer, John Mayhew, was criticised at the time for his flat tyre shuffle in The Knife, which was thought to be clumsy. I...

I'd still call it a money beat, just that he's playing linearly with his hands.
