    Budgie, from Siouxsie & The Banshees and The Creatures. Wonderfully adventurous! Check out his playing on Siouxsie's tune "Parties Fall"...sublime!

    Whiplash! (The Movie)

    Ever had a band you just couldn't like

    Many great bands exist whose music just doesn't resonate with me. Tool, Muse, Springsteen, Mellencamp, Guns N Roses, Wilco...just off the top of my head.

    Killer Bands: Gone But Not Forgotten!

    Yessir...No Doubt was a smokin' pop band. Great players and Gwen was in top-form. Her music is fluffy auto-tune sequenced mindless product now. Same thing with The Band Perry...great players who made catchy pop they don't even have real instruments on their crap songs. Sad.

    "Are you any good?"

    Tell 'em you are the best drummer that ever lived. When they mention Buddy...tell 'em he couldn't carry your stick bag. Peart? Pffft. Moon? Please. Bonham? Yawn. Anyone who asks that question is not worthy of an honest answer.
