    What Are You Listening To?

    That picture looks like one from a documentary I saw recently on one of the subscription services. About a photographer guy who owned a NYC apartment and had the building wired up with microphones to record all the impromptu jam sessions that the jazz musicians who crashed there were doing. It's...

    LP Score!

    Saw a FB post from our community page that said, "...we're giving away 200+ LPs. A mix of jazz, blues and rock..." I immediately said I'll take the jazz records. The guy has taste. In my haul, over 15 Miles Davis records (some notable exceptions missing like Sketches Of Spain, Bitches Brew, The...

    I have $250. What wood snare would you recommend?

    Used Acrolite and some new heads. Or a Gretsch Renown maple snare (Which I do need to get for my kit)

    O.T. Customized Die Cast Cars (i.e. Hot Wheels, Matchbox, etc.)

    My wife, many years ago put a shelf up high in our living room and put all my large scale die cast Porsche's and Porsche 928 model kits. I have quite a few of both. These two are my favorites. I'll probably buy another Porsche in the next couple of years. I would hope it to be a 356. My wife is...

    O.T. Customized Die Cast Cars (i.e. Hot Wheels, Matchbox, etc.)

    I could care less about the money. LOL. I really would like to get rid of them. I laid out the box. I was right. 30% 928's. (the column of green ones). Go Figure, that was the IRL car I owned back in the day. The column to the right is other Porsches. The lone car to the right is a Panoz. A...

    Were there additional musicians in your family? Tell us!

    No. I am it. But my 14 year old nephew is really surprising me with his piano skills. He's taken up drums recently. They go hand in hand.

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Announces 2021 Nominees

    Except for Todd Rundgren and Tina Turner, that is the weak field of nominees.

    Uggg...I ended up with some of my mothers Beanie Babies after she passed away 15 years ago. I need to de-clutter my life. LOL

    O.T. Customized Die Cast Cars (i.e. Hot Wheels, Matchbox, etc.)

    Don't know. I'm not really a collector. If I dig in that box, 30% of those are Porsche 928's. I have a lot of Porsche die casts. I guess that was my thing 15+ years ago.

    Wait...I thought you were supposed to leave them in the original packaging.

    One tune that blew you away.

    Still loving this song as much now as when I first heard it on my CD player in my then Ford Ranger almost 30 years ago.

    Favorite Drum Stick?

    Yup. Art Blakey's. Not so much since I'm not playing much out. I practice mostly on a low volume kit now and L80's are stick tip eaters. Nylon tips work best for them. I been using VF Jack DeJohnette's (the green ones with the white nylon tip) and I just got a set of Regal Tip X-series 5b nylon...
