Re: I'm not getting this.

How old was that post, Andy? Or, more to the point, I wonder how old the posts were that gave that impression?

There were times in the past when angry posters had run ins with mods and you can...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Yes D, the music is fresh and imaginative although, as you suggested, all within the bounds of "legit". My first thought was Henry Cow but can see how you'd think Lizard. Glad you enjoyed it. Deity...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

If intersexed, transpeople etc are approx 1:3000 then that means most are invisible in society, not the obvious caricatures that Jerry Springer used to focus on (not that there's anything wrong with...

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: Neil Peart Borrows Max Roach?

Neil's paid his dues, achieved at a high level in his field, and has pleased and inspired many drummers and Rush fans. He's earned to right to do what he likes. There will always be Rush fans who...

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.

Re: Hearing the upbeat as the downbeat

There was a time when I liked a challenge. These days, just getting through a day without back pain is a challenge, let alone having some hardarse bandleader getting on my case. So you can take your...

Re: Hearing the upbeat as the downbeat

Larry, it sounds to me like he's an old school bandleader. Like the old jazz groups. It was a point of pride that you could play your stuff in any situation.

It's a time honoured and valid way of...
