    Zak Starkey on Who Tour - Pads for Cymbals

    I saw that tour and it was a good show. It took a couple of songs to get used to the overall lower volume of a Who concert (I've seen them 4 times) but I did enjoy it. The mix was fantastic actually. Zak is a great drummer and his e-kit sounded great. Zak is still playing, he is not faking it.

    Anybody Else Love Jazz…But Hate Jazz VOCALS?

    I take it on a song-by-song basis but vocal jazz is not a favorite of mine.

    Top 20 Canadian Rock Bands and Musicians

    So, this is a Canadian band my dad was in. Good band, but never took off commercially. I really liked living in Calgary, but dad being on the road for 6-8 weeks at a time took a toll on my stepmom. Right around the time she moved back to the states the band had significant financial trouble...

    The last thing you didn’t bring to the gig

    It's been a while, I always visualize my kit when I'm done packing the car and mentally "play" what is in all the cases... Several years ago I had two gigs on the same night. The early gig was before an Indy Pacers game at the Fieldhouse and I forgot my kick pedal! My wife had to wake our two...

    Can We Re-visit Hearing Aids?

    I've had the Costco (Phonak) hearing aids for almost two years. Mine take a battery, but I understand that the new version is rechargeable. Costco sells several models, but the basic phonaks met my needs. I waited way too long. I can't emphasize how much these are a "quality of life"...

    OT: Virtuosity Explained - "Lateralus" by Tool

    I went thru a reaction video phase & got tired of being annoyed by the presenters. The singer reviewing Tool... I first saw her reacting to Geoff Tate and it was ok, but I don't care for the way she performs her reactions... my reaction to her reacting. I will watch Michael Palmisano. He's a...

    Thomas Dolby "Aliens Ate My Buick" Friday Fiver Fer

    Loved this album in the early 90's and have not listened to it in years! I met him when he wrote some music for Alesis to demo ADAT's at Namm.... If I recall, he ended up starting a company that made ringtones on cell phones possible, or something like that. Brilliant guy.
