    Leaving it all on the field

    I've always wanted to be a drummer, instead I did the whole band frontman/songwriter bit for about 20 years. Never had a day job: wrote songs, performed and otherwise got lucky enough to have music as my only source of work and income for all of my life so far. A few years ago I got asked to...

    Chilliwack Drummer Warms Canadian Hearts with 175-Song Rush Tribute

    Dude!!! This is the first ever song I bought with my own money... I was 8 years old and bought the 45 rpm at the local record store!! Glad to learn they're still somewhat active.

    Just ordered up some Broadkasters.

    Congrats on the new tubs and welcome to the club. BKs are awesome drums, I got a set in the exact same sizes. I bought my other set off of Dave's drum shop (vintage Rogers) and have nothing but nice things to say about him.

    How young is TOO young?

    I'm very sorry, I can't even begin to fathom to what extend this has become the de-facto reference for pretty much anything chemistry related. And how annoying that must be for you serious academicians and scientists. Anyhoo, I meant no disrespect, it was all in jest, if somewhat clumsy.

    How young is TOO young?

    Walter White the hell out of it then .. Meth is like Adderal on steroids: it will increase the kid's capacity to focus something fierce!!! Absolutely kidding, that goes without saying. For a little while years ago, I teached Karate to 4-5-6 y/olds. The attention span was extremely short and...

    Tell me this doesn’t sound like Bonham.

    The thing about compression that is truly and thouroughly understood by very few people, is how it messes with the time constant, thus allowing various settings to alter the groove and time perception significantly. One of the best and clearer demonstrations I've gleaned off of YT is by Kush...

    Tell me this doesn’t sound like Bonham.

    What we've come to call "The Bonham sound" was very much tied to the production style and the recording/mixing gear they used. I'd say as much as the actual notes played. Remember, in the days before acurate emulation plugins and/or clones of classic recording gear were widely and cheaply...

    Sounds like Bonham with less compression. A more open and dynamic signal means it won't be the puchy and authoritative "sounds jump at ya" kinda tone such as what's on most of Zepelin's recordings

    OT What's Your Favorite Breakfast Cereal?

    I see, DFO rising to new heights... I'm a Fruit Loops guy Cap'n Crunch and Corn Pops tied for second. Could eat a salad bowl full of either in one sitting and then bask in the sweet sweet pain of my lacerated gums and palate. Worth it... #dontcerealshameme
