    You Are In A Drum Battle With Tommy Lee, What Would You Do To Survive?

    I hear you loud and clear. Still, I'd bet this thread dwarfs several others in views. Anyway, the English call a situation like this, a forum thread where two guys wind up dominating the conversation, 'handbags at dawn', but this particular handbag duel breaks from that script somewhat...

    They look way back. I'd be too cramped with the pedals there. But it could be shorter legs or a physical thing .. or he just likes it that way.

    You Are In A Drum Battle With Tommy Lee, What Would You Do To Survive?

    I have to admit, I don't really understand you. I've said nothing insulting to you in this thread. I have disagreed with you because I don't agree with you! That's simply a part of discussion on any forum. What you're calling "locking horns" is all in your mind because of nothing more than...

    You just can't help yourself, can you? You have no idea how it looks or reflects on your words.

    Don't know about your past go-rounds with Mr. Black, but in the posts you deleted, and apologies if I'm incorrect since they're no longer available, the implication as I read it then was that artist substitution was a "well known secret" and as such implies some level of ubiquity. Given that's...

    I'm always interested in behind the set shots when there's a double pedal to check th alignment of the pedals in relation to the center of the body position. I can't play a double pedal unless they're set as if there were a second bass drum in terms of distance and angling of the pedal to my...

    It's "between you and me" said the elderly other member to the guy claiming 2 college degrees :p

    You Are In A Drum Battle With Tommy Lee, What Would You Do To Survive?

    I'm not sure how in the world you assumed Whitten would have in a million years thought you were referring to him with 'elderlyPITboy' when there's a 'Old PIT Guy' in the thread, but no matter. What I'm really interested in, since you've doubled-down on your insulting play on the posting name...

    You Are In A Drum Battle With Tommy Lee, What Would You Do To Survive?

    See, this is exactly the issue I outlined in another thread. Nowhere within my posts in this thread, none of them deleted, is there a single instance of personal derision towards you in any form. Those posts stand as evidence of that. And here you are, once again after the fact - the fact being...

    The drum line competitions were very competitive, and involved more than the drumming. True, you don't see bass battles. Probably too busy with someone's GF. But you do see piano players in talent contests.

    You Are In A Drum Battle With Tommy Lee, What Would You Do To Survive?

    Well, yes and no. It's a silly hypothetical for one, and for two there have been drum battles, real ones, going way back, and not just with drum lines. There's always been competition in art, from music to dance. Having said that, it's usually a healthy competition born of good spirit, kinship...

    You Are In A Drum Battle With Tommy Lee, What Would You Do To Survive?

    Mike, why not just argue the merits of your position and leave out all the drama? All I did was express a contrary opinion to yours, there was no personal attack made whatsoever. It's called discussion and debate. I really don't see the need for falling on swords and the other falderal. Just...

    You Are In A Drum Battle With Tommy Lee, What Would You Do To Survive?

    I don't understand the entire juxtaposition. We're talking about Tommy Lee, a successful drummer in a very successful band during the 80s, a band who redefined stage craft in an era of overwrought glamour, sex, drug use and hairspray, and we’re analogizing all of that to Fabian, Frankie Avalon...
