    Summer Concerts -- Who Are You Seeing?

    The Beach Boys did a show here in Quakertown, PA last summer at the outdoor Univest Center. My daughter did a dance recital at the same venue a few weeks prior. Queensryche/Great White, Scotty McCreery, and Chris Janson have also performed here since then

    Favorite China Cymbals

    I love chinas as well. My motto is "that's some nice drumming, but where's the china cymbal?" I like spice in life. I credit Dave Abbruzzese for my love of china cymbals. In fact - I'm still on the hunt (30 years later) for the china he used for Pearl Jam's MTV Unplugged performance. That's...

    SOLD!Ludwig Late 70’s Black Beauty Supersensitive 5x14 SOLD!

    Severely overpriced. A Pearl brass Sensitone sounds just as good, if not better.

    Do you value anything autographed?

    The only autographed anything I ever had was a poster signed by Bobby Rock after a clinic he did in 1995. I rediscovered it recently and it went into the paper recycle bin. However, I have a pair of Dave Abbruzzese signature sticks that he gave me personally and also a leather coat that both...

    Update: Pearl Jam Drummer Dave Krusen Plays First Paid Show in 31 Years

    Sounds like someone trying their hand at drumming for the first time. Why is this guy still drumming?

    Update: Pearl Jam Drummer Dave Krusen Plays First Paid Show in 31 Years

    What a f'n honor that has to be to play with one of your favorite bands live on-stage in a filled stadium! Better than Abbruzzese? You can't compare this kid to Abbruzzese through this song. Who knows how Abbruzzese would have played it. But this kid killed it! Awesome.

    Sabian HH Logo

    I'll have to pull out my '90s Sabian catalogs to see when the model logo went from the small HH on the left of the model designation to the script. I think it was 1996. I believe the script was used until the early 2000s and then it went to the large HH at the top of the cymbal. As far as I...

    Sabian HH Logo

    Can you post pics? Are you referring to the model stamping or the Sabian logo?

    Update: Pearl Jam Drummer Dave Krusen Plays First Paid Show in 31 Years

    What I find interesting about early PJ is that three songs off their debut album Ten that were released with a video each featured a different drummer, so you get a taste of how three different drummers handled songs from one album. The 'Alive ' re-recording and video features Matt Chamberlain...

    Update: Pearl Jam Drummer Dave Krusen Plays First Paid Show in 31 Years

    To each their own. Different strokes for different folks. Personally, I don't think Ringo Starr is anyone to get excited over, but some do. I've been (and still am) castigated for not being on the Ringo bandwagon, but I'm sorry - I just don't get it.

    What’s your favorite cymbal brand and why?

    I have a Sabian PRO (late '90s B8 line) 14" china that is awesome. This is even in comparison to my upper model Sabians. My brother had a Sabian B8 Pro 18" china that was killer. He sold or traded it dirt cheap for a stupid reason.

    Sabian Anthology Cymbals

    Dale's Drum Shop in Harrisburg - that's where I bought my Pearl MMX Masters Custom kit new in 1998 that I still have today. Haven't been there since, but I'm also no longer passing through that area to/from school.

    Krusen's work got the job done, but he was no-frills. For example - compare the album version of 'EvenFlow" (Krusen) to the re-released version that is in the video (Abbruzzese). Are you sure you aren't confusing the two Daves?

    Update: Pearl Jam Drummer Dave Krusen Plays First Paid Show in 31 Years

    I agree 100%. Abbruzzese was perfect for PJ - at the time at least, before PJ's sound really evolved. Cameron was awesome in Soundgarden and Temple Of The Dog, but not in PJ. The only PJ song I think Cameron killed it in was 'Evacuation', but that's because Cameron wrote it and has an early...

    What? Are you saying Abbruzzese wasn't PJ's best drummer?
