    A little OT: Movies with great original music

    Three come to my mind: first and probably obviously, Birdman. Then, the Bullitt soundtrack by Lalo Schiffrin is fantastic from start to finish. Lastly, the original compositions by Elmer Bernstein for LA Confidential really set the tone for the entire film wonderfully.

    Is restoring a drum set worth it?

    Been there, for sure. There are very few things which will recoup the cost of restoration once it's finished, be it instruments, cars, or buildings (and I've done all three).

    OT: Zappa meets Davy Jones

    The preceding segment to the Zappa/Jones clip was of Davy singing and dancing to Nilsson's 'Daddy's Song', (Eddie Hoh, drums) & choreographed by Toni Basil. Hats off to everyone involved, because this couldn't have been easy to film, perform or edit.

    Were there additional musicians in your family? Tell us!

    No other family that I know of except for my dad's father who could apparently play all sorts of stringed instruments by ear.

    Eddie Hoh w/ Modern Folk Quartet, Greenwich Village 1966

    Just came across these photos of Eddie Hoh drumming with the Modern Folk Quartet at the Night Owl Cafe in the Village, '66. MFQ went 'electric' in '65 and hired Eddie after seeing him with Joel Scott Hill and Lee Michaels. Spector was interested in producing them, but it didn't really go...

    Is This a Slingerland Canister Throne?

    No problem, thanks to all for your help. I am considering putting it up for sale (haven't used it in a looooong time) so wanted to make sure I could be accurate with what it is!
