No Yamaha doesn't endorse me..yet!...lol....j/k...I wish they would someday....I made my choice because Levon plays Yamaha...Eddie Bayers plays Yamaha as well as my drum teacher...and we own a Yamaha quad so it all fits....I do love my new set though and feel I made a good choice...anyway I hope your son picks up the drums...as for me I think I must of been born to play...i can't remember a time that I didn't....if you think it may help your son maybe you can show him my site sometime...if he sees how much fun a nine year old can have with it maybe it will give him a boost....it is www.tylerhough.com

Well he doesn't play like YOU play. He can keep a steady beat, but he really doesn't yet understand 8 bar phrasing and simple stuff like coming back to ONE, yet.

He seems to be more into guitar than drums, which I encourage. Reading and playing music can only help, if he wants to drum later ( I played violine for 6 years before playing drums).

As for Yamaha, I just sold a Stage Custom kit (which was really good for the money) and got a new Beech Custom kit with a Maple Custom Absolute kick (best bass drum sound ever!!!).

I'll post some pics in October, when I get to England with my new wife and my new kit!

just looking at these last few posts it is clear why we don't allow swearing and adult content on this forum. but when you read these guy's posts they sound so mature. its great. Kudos to you both, drummerboy and edward.

and well done to everyone else for keeping it clean and cool.

Hey....I got a few of those drum set shirts on eBay, but they've been in the malls too. Liberty did a clinic a few years ago here in Nashville, during a vintage and new drum show. We talked for a few hours that day. I had previously met him in 1976 0r 1977 when the Turnstiles album was just out. I got to go to the taped show at Connecticut college they did with Billy. In the seventies Liberty and the others were pretty stuck up when they visited the music store I worked at, but when I recently met him he was super nice and great fun. He repeatedly talked about how lucky he was to get hooked up with Billy Joel and that there were many drummers out there who were not as lucky as he was. He's a hard hitter. I think during the clinic he mentioned Sabian will not give him any light weight cymbals for touring anymore, just heavy ones!

Here's a picture of me back in 1998:



Note the nifty black and yellow finish on the old Pearl kit I played at the time. I liked it so much I later put together a matching outfit:



Inspired by Bill Bruford's yellow jacket on King Crimson's "Thrak" tour.

I miss that kit. I never should have sold it.

Hey everyone

Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. My name is Matt, I live in Michigan. I have been playing for about a year! I am in a small unknown band called the Bungalow Junkies. We play primarily rock type music, but have been known to "rub some funk on it" We practice together at least once a week usually!! Whatever happens, happens..it is pretty laid back!! I have two mentors, Larry and Rich, they are both in the band as well. Hence I recieve my lessons for free, and get to have a great time doing it!! I love The drums! I am sure I will post all over the place, so I hope I don't annoy anyone. I ask alot of questions!!This is me about a year ago!! I Shall post a recent pic as soon as I get my hands on one!

I'm going tohave my mom check on those shirts for me on Ebay...I'm sure if she finds one it will be 10 times to big...that's the trouble I have...I can't find any cool drum shirts in my size....cool story you have of your meetings with Liberty....I'll be happy when I'm grown up so I can get around and hopefully meet some more drummers.

Sorry, no shirtless pics of me for the ladies. Here I am sitting on one of my furniture pieces "pencil bench". I would wear safety glasses all the time if I could, they are so fashionable.

Ok, start poking fun.......NOW!

Me and my drumkit during soundcheck at Mr. Smalls Theater outside Pittsburgh, PA back in January. Good times, good times. Pretty sweet venue, too. Some big bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Mudvayne, Ministry, Chimaira, Anti-Flag have played there. Yep, thats me..

Here we go. I'm from Munich, Germany and 24 yrs old. I can't really sum up the years of playing cause I used to start with drum school when I was 8 till I was 12. but I was a damn lazy ass and didn't learn very much and played once with the cello group of my sister "entertainer" on a concert haha. I had lessons again when I was 18 for a year...still no motivation, still no band. Now I play again since march 2004 with my band called jaws (oldschool hardcore in the vein of bane, judge, cro-mags) and now highly motivated I practice almost every day rudimentals at home and play occasionally the kit in our practice space.
2 pictures of me on 2 diff. shows, playing with verse from rhode island.

My name is John, I have been playing the drums for a little under a year now and I am 15 years old. My band, The Jam (Kind of going for The Cream type-name) plays classic rock from the 60's and 70's era, but most of all we play blues.. Loooots of blues. I have a PDP set, with 2 Zildjian crashes and a ride. I'm saving up for a cowbell, and some other cymbals.
I don't have any pics of me on my set, so here is one of me in my famous aviators(I have a whole collection of them, haha :-) ).

Welcome to the forum. Just a small word of advice: your band might want to consider a name change. The Jam was the name of a very famous punk/rock band from the UK in the late 70's. (Check out 'Going Underground' great song) great band, incidentally the drummer played Roger's drums before they were bad.

Either way, cool to hear you're into the classic rock. Keep rocking.
