Re: Where's the best place to find a drummer for my band?

Your best bet is networking. Go to where the drummers are. Local gigs, music stores, rehersal spaces. I have never had much luck with answering ads. Most of my gigs have come from other musicians...

Re: peace sells drum track

These guys were all wacked out of their minds on heroine. Gar pawned his cymbals during the recording of Peace Sells to get money for more smack. Given the fact that they blew their recording buget...

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

I have had to quit several bands throughout the years. Mostly due to my nomadic nature. I tend to move around quite a bit. Every few years I would pack up and head somewhere else. Because of this I...

Re: Freddie Gruber: Is It Necessary to Know Drum Rudiments?

As a person who has never taken a lesson in my 20+ years of drumming, I like that a drum legend like Freddie acknowledges that its all about the individuals journey more than some strict regimen that...

Re: Nick Menza

My guess is he isnt interested in coming in a fill in or tour drummer. He likely wants to be on the ground floor of something he can put his name all over. In the last ten years just about every...

Re: What makes music classic, timeless?

I have three daughters, 20, 16 and 12 and none of them like music older than 12 minutes ago. They grew up with rock music playing constantly and none of them care for it. To my kids Nirvana is...

Re: When soundmen attack

Playing in a small original band there is no way I would try and run a full reso. I work with sound guys in small bars with limited equipment at their disposal. I get like 5 minutes to set up and...

Re: I'm overwhelmed

My advice would be to find a teacher who will organize everything into lesson plans that you can practice to the point of absorption. Trying to take the thousands of videos on youtube and codifying...

Re: why I wring my hands in aggrivation, but still bought . . .

Ohhh, now I really understand my problem. I'm looking for a machine that will take me into the future! I have no use for the past, its already been done. I am looking for something fueled by...

Re: why I wring my hands in aggrivation, but still bought . . .

I got a black galaxy acrolite as part of a payment for some amp work I did. I am honestly not a fan, and it is really for many of the reason the OP mentioned. It definitely needs new snares. I put...

Re: Songs composed by drummers

Around the Fur by Deftones was allegedy written around the drum beat Abe came up with. Sully from Godsmack said Straight out of Line was written around the drum part as well. Im sure that does...

Re: Evans EQ Pillow

Re: 420 musicians onstage

You have obviously never been in an original touring band. We get a half hour set in the smallist, shittiest, dirt hole clubs the northeast has to offer. We play the songs off the record, because the...

Re: 420 musicians onstage

Sometimes I'll have a couple of drinks, sometimes I'll take a couple of puffs, sometimes I'll play completely sober. I dont really think it matters a whole lot one way or another. The only thing I...

Re: Evans EQ Pillow

I also use them in all of my bass drums. I think they only come in one size, but you are not using it to dampen the reso head, only the batter, so the length is really irrelevant. It comes with some...

Re: Universities and Music *sigh*

My advice, if you are dead set on college go get an engineering degree. Play in bands on the side and date girls in the music dept. When you graduate with a degree that is actually useful, then move...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Mike, I wasnt saying that you are full of BS. I am saying that Clem's reason for leaving doesnt hold much water. I have no doubt that you are just reporting on what you read.

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Im calling BS on this. I have actually been inside of the SIR warehouse in NYC. It is the size of an airplane hanger, and there were literally thousands of kits. I dont think you could pick a major...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

That is exactly what I was thinking. I am sure there are numerous smaller drum companies that I have never heard of. But if I walked up and saw that kit on the stage as a backline I would have been...

Re: Standard DW9000 and heel-toe

Wait. What? Heel toe is just a way, like the slide or constant release, to get quick doubles. It was something I was taught years ago to play the quick triplets for punk. I also know quite a few...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

I experienced a rather strange phenomenon at a show recently. It was a collection of stoner rock/doom bands at a club in Boston. These bands were deafening, which is pretty much how I prefer my...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

Remember, the guitarists were playing 100 watt heads with no master volume. Often times multiple heads to project the sound because the PA systems sucked. In one of my bands the guitarists play...
