    Drum Ads Seared Into Your Memory

    Paiste did one with Tommy Lee I believe, “ Happier than a pig in s**t ad, might have generated some hate mail. I want to go on record and say this thread is bringing some serious joy. Looking back at these old ads is something else. I really regret tossing all my old drum mags and catalogs.

    Interesting changes to PayPal's Account User Agreement coming July 31st

    Shipping is crazy anymore, I get it fuel, salaries and associated costs. Time eats the PP fee and then shipping its not worth it. And now you try and sell a decent or like new item and buyers want to offer pennies on the dollar. I had some outdoor gear for sale on a FB group asked $140.00...

    Tommy Aldridge - told this story a million times, in my teens I went a clinic he was doing and was the first one there, helped with getting the kit set.

    Anybody notice how shoddy and unprofessional the Mapex site is?

    Anybody notice how shoddy and unprofessional the Mapex site is?
