    Nerves worse when you know people in the audience?

    Nope. Only time I can remember being nervous before a show was my first one, in grade 8 band. Oddly, after that, all good. Its only gotten more and more comfortable over the years, regardless of who's in the crowd. I've worked with a guitar player that suffers from crazy stage fright. He...

    This. Love that snare. Let me guess, John Wood has an elaborate story about how they mined the bronze beneath a 4500 year old Egyptian pyramid.

    Helluva Unboxing Video: Tama Star Maple

    I did the exact same thing years ago, on a monster DW kit. Easily the worst cost-benefit drum purchase I've ever made. If he's happy, good on him.
