    OT: Your Favorite Live Album?

    Donny Hathaway Live and Tower of Power Live and in Living Color are my faves. Live and in Living Color was originally to be a double LP, and I've got all the tracks they dropped from the initial album, in perfect fidelity.

    OT: The Sax instead of guitar solo.

    Much rather hear a sax solo than some jerked-off Van Halen type crap.

    Was the Late Johnny Hutch the Beatles' First Choice to Replace Pete Best?

    Shocked and stunned that this hasn't been mentioned...

    18" kick....wasn't impressed.

    The bass drum is the foundation of any band's sound. If it can't be heard, then the other musicians are playing too loudly.

    Inagoddadavida Had The First See Through Drum Set

    Ginger Baker had a set of green acrylic drums he made himself in the early 60s. The set was later owned by the drummer from the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and was used on numerous TV appearances in the late 60s.

    Gretsch Catalina Jazz Blue Satin Flame or Pacific Concept Classic Bop

    I've played both. The PDP's are definitely louder, but I don't think that is necessarily a good thing.

    Hal Blaine Shuts up Bernard Purdy! ;) Good!

    If Purdie did indeed play on Beatles sessions, then they'd have to be later ones. Because when The Beatles cut their first album, Purdie had just started doing sessions, most of which were demo work. There's no way that they would fly the tapes over to the U.S. only to let an unproven drummer...

    RIP Hal Blaine

    Nice video, but Hal didn't play on "The Monkees Theme." That was Billy Lewis, who drummed on most of the first two Monkees LPs. Hal only played on the Nesmith productions.

    Drumming quirks, hangups

    I hate toms on a snare stand, and I hate bass drums without tom mounts. I hate the misuse/overuse of crash cymbals. I hate (with a few exceptions) wood tipped sticks. I hate non-traditional drum sizes. I hate people who crunch their potato chips. I hate people who slurp coffee. I hate people who...

    RIP D*ck Dale

    Dead at 82. What a legend this guy was. I knew he had health troubles, but thought he was doing better. RIP.

    Mr. Tamborine Man session

    And as far as the AFM sheets being doctored or faked, that is utter bs. The only way those session guys were able to get paid for their studio work was by the contractor submitting those sheets to the union.

    Mr. Tamborine Man session

    The Byrds session tapes, along with the Beach Boys sessions, were on a bootleg series called Unsurpassed Masters. You can find them on ebay or discogs. None of this stuff is shrouded in any mystery. At least in the case of The Beach Boys, it was known as far back as 1966 that they were using...

    Mr. Tamborine Man session

    Well, if the Wrecking Crew were indeed the ones playing on "Turn, Turn, Turn", I have lost a lot of respect for them since it took them 5 days and 78 takes to get the song down. I guess they made the secret session tapes with Michael Clarke clearly audible on them just to dupe the public some 50...
