    David Bowie Friday 5fer

    Omar kills on that album. He is one of the rare guys who can play jazz, rock & pop all equally well. His sound is his own & his groove is huge. I like the sound of his drums & cymbals. He is definitely one of my favorite players to watch & listen to.

    Drummer autographs

    Louie Bellson. Tommy Aldridge. Billy Cobham. I've met Dom Famularo & Marco Minneman. All of them were super nice.

    The "graveyard" subforums

    I'm sure if it was jazz it would stay up.

    On the hunt for old Tama snares!

    My 8x14 is not for sale. I would sell or trade the 5x14. The 8x14 is a sweet drum though.

    Nicko Mcbrain's Drumming

    I saw him/them with Quiet Riot in 83. Piece of Mind tour. They were amazing & super tight. It was my 1st rock concert. I still love Nicko as a drummer. He is one of the most underrated rock drummers along with Alex Van Halen.

    OT Favorite Clint Eastwood Movies

    Escape from Alcatraz is one of my favs with him. He has some great dialogue. Most of his films have great one liners too.

    Todd Sucherman

    Ok. I never said he wasn't great. I criticized his playing like Vinnie in a classic rock format. Steve Smith can play the same vocabulary but in Journey he played appropriately for Journey. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    Todd Sucherman

    I was watching youtube vids. What a great technician. Really clean. Then I watch him play with Styx. Wow does he overplay those songs. I was shocked. Even the grooves seemed like he added stuff. It's weird because he's really a great drummer. Anyone else think he's the wrong guy for that gig...

    **SOLD**Yamaha 16” 9000 Tympani Floor Tom- COW MIJ

    How much range with the pedal? Does it go completely slack to pitch. I've always wanted one but I know I'd never use it. Birch shell? Mahogany?

    What would you do?

    You have managed to be married & play drums for 55 years. If it's something you love then get her some noise canceling headphones. Done! I've been playing almost 40 years & I love my wife more than anything but I wouldn't stop playing for anything. It's part of who I am. She shouldn't expect you...
