    Why don’t I have desire to check other bands out?

    I will only go out and see original bands nowadays, and even then, if they start playing too loudly, I'll leave immediately. Cover bands I have no interest in seeing because inevitably their covers will pale versus the records they are covering.

    Why you shouldn't do $100 gigs....

    In all the year's I've been doing this, I've come across very few who could match me in terms of talent and ability. So I'm sorry, $100 isn't worth me leaving the couch for anymore, especially doing tired Skynyrd covers.

    3 weeks & item purchased from member yet to be shipped ?? UPDATE - NOW DELIVERED !!!

    Total B.S. from the seller. Nobody has more family problems than me, and I still manage to ship out 1-5 items a day. I even dropped several items at the PO on the way to my brothers funeral. If not shipped by the end of the week, they should be exposed here.

    Favorite Wooden Snare You Have Ever Played or Heard

    Cleveland Powertone in Blue Onyx. Some junkie robbed it. By the time I tracked him down the drum was long gone. I bought two others of the same era-both of which I ended up selling. They were nice but my first one was magic.

    Is this a first generation Tama Iron Cobra?

    I had one of those. Good pedal until it started making a clicking sound, which nothing seemed to alleviate. I was in a bad mood one day and when I heard the click, I smashed it against a cinder block wall. It never made any noise ever again.

    Drummers today that still play large kits.

    Looking at some of these monster kits make me want to vomit, and are usually played by drummer's in bands I absolutely loathe. Dennis Chambers is a notable exception.

    OT: Maude’s Walter, Bill Macy, has died at 97

    He was a brilliant actor. I loved him as Herb in the Seinfeld episode where Jerry buys his dad the Cadillac.

    Pearl 786N Bass Drum Spurs in NM cond.

    In desperate need of Pearl 786N bass drum spurs. These have a 4 hole pattern, with the horizontal holes (side to side) measuring 2 1/16" center to centerand the vertical holes measuring 2 3/4" center to center. These were the predecessors to the modern SP30 spurs, which I HATE. Must be in NM...

    He guested on two episodes of The Monkees, including the last episode as the Evil Wizard Glick. He was also in their TV special from 1969. R.I.P. Rip.

    Can We Recreate The Motown Sound?

    Good video, but when I think classic Motown, I think of a beautifully tuned open bass drum sound.

    RIP Ginger Baker

    I hope Ginger and the Devil are enjoying a smoke together. What a loss!

    5.5 vs other size snares

    I just got a 5.75 x 14 Japanese made Pearl sensitone, and it tunes up or down equally wonderfully. It maintains body throughout the entire tuning range. Not too pingy when cranked, and not too sloshy when brought down.

    krupa or rich

    I love them both, but when I look at the entire body of work, I have to pick Buddy. As mentioned already, when he played on other peoples' dates he was a master of taste and restraint, qualities not usually attributed to him.

    Pearl 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops

    I just took possession of a Japan-made limited edition Pearl Sensitone with the Fat Tone hoops and I'm a believer. The best cross stick sound of any drum I've ever played, especially fantastic for bossa nova.

    Jim Gordon's Camco set

    He earned 1.5 million in royalties for Layla when Clapton put out the Unplugged album. Ironically, that version omits the piano outro which was his contribution (albeit stolen from Rita Coolidge). He also won a Grammy.

    Phenomenal Debut Albums

    The Beatles-Please, Please Me. All the songs are stylistically different, but form a wonderful, coherent listening experience. Elton John-Empty Sky. That no U.S. record company thought this worthy of release is mind boggling. Every song is a masterpiece. Men at Work-Business as Usual. Every...

    Charlie Watts Last Night At Gillette Stadium

    I spoke with Jack Lawton yesterday, and told him that I would be seeing the Stones in Philly tonight. He told me that he reupholstered both of Charlies thrones that he's using on this tour. Apparently, Charlie is a vintage throne guy as well.
