    Just uploaded last week by Chick Corea. Fascinating background story about a cymbal that Roy Haynes gave Chick. He thinks Sabian is making a clone of this cymbal, to be called, "Royalty."

    Tower of Power - David Garibaldi - Sound Check. 5-4-19

    Always enjoy getting that behind the scenes, close up view of the legends drumming away live or in soundcheck. Instructive as well. This fun little 5 minute video gives a good glimpse of DG's gear, how he has it all positioned, some of his technique, styles and sounds.

    No Nuts?

    Anyone tried these cymbal sleeves yet? They look like they'd get the job done well sonically, replace the usual cymbal stand accessories, and simplify setup/break down. (OK, let the jokes fly if necessary. I didn't name them!;))

    Not that I agree with the choices-- but as usual, Rick's videos are fun and instructive. Here, he has a friend of his, Jack Jones, play out the first few measures live of each intro.

    Anyone used(d) Stick Gripps?

    I checked out some sticks at GC the other day that had these gripps on them and was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they felt. I don't know if they might be a bit tough to use on sticks for a complete gig, but in the store they seemed non- chaffing. I've found for the past few years that...

    José Octavio "Chepito" Areas Dávila

    From the original Santana grop, doing an incredible timbales solo on Santana's "Tousaint L'Overture (1970). Just as worth watching is his percussion playing in the Santana Woodstock songs, Evil Ways & Soul Sacrifice (along with drummer Michael Shrieve's famous solo on Sacrifice):

    DRUM TRACK- Billy Joel - Piano Man

    I love hearing these YouTube isolated tracks from popular hits and keep them on file as references. Even better than reading a transcription! In this one, you can really appreciate all the color and nuances Ron Tutt put into the song's basic waltz. (Edited note: for some reason, the post's...

    What's this bass drum [reso] head cover?

    I'd seen this before on a few Dead videos, but this video really shows it clearly. It looks like a muffling cover of sorts, or perhaps an early version of a trigger? Anyways, never saw it before live except on Dead videos. Here, its being used on both Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart's bass...
