    paiste 2002 cymbals throughout the years

    My current 2002 "Ride" is just over 2400g, while the one I had from 1978 weighed in at around 2150g. So they were definitely beefed up. I prefer the older crashes and the current rides.

    I Can't Believe I am Posting This... "Daydream Believer" (cover) "The Sugar Pills"

    Hal only played on the Nesmith produced tunes (at least up until Instant Replay). Billy Lewis did most of the drumming on the first two albums and then was supplanted in the studio by Eddie Hoh (Micky Dolenz himself played on Headquarters). The stuff cut in New York was Gary Chester and Herb...

    Anyone planning/dreaming about a move?

    I'm 1/2 hour from Delaware, where the average property tax bill is 92% cheaper than here in NJ. No sales tax, no personal property tax, and car insurance is 70% cheaper on average. And if you're 65 and over, your already low property taxes are slashed by 50%. Sounds great, right? You'd think...

    Milford Graves has passed away.

    I loved his whole approach to music and life itself. Probably one of the most interesting people that's ever existed, and a true pioneer.

    Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio - Warm-up Set (Live on KEXP) :)

    That is a great performance. They've had about a dozen drummers since then.

    Did anyone catch the SNL musical guest last week

    This thread is timely. I got banned from WXPN's Facebook page for going on in great detail about how crappy and devoid of talent Phoebe Bridgers is and why they are further contributing to the decline of western civilization by playing her vapid, insipid pablum.

    OT: Zappa meets Davy Jones

    He was also in the next to last episode of the TV series, "The Monkees Blow Their Minds", where he and Mike Nesmith switch roles, then smashes an old car with a sledgehammer. He was a huge fan and advocate of The Monkees.

    Andy White (British Studio Drummer - "Love Me Do")

    By the way, The Smithereens released their version of "Love Me Do/P.S. I Love You" featuring Andy White on a 45 last year. Cool release with a picture sleeve and the old Tollie label revived.

    Andy White (British Studio Drummer - "Love Me Do")

    It's funny that George Martin was supposedly unhappy with Ringo's playing on Love Me Do, yet chose to release this version as The Beatles first single on Parlophone, while relegating Andy's version to the album.

    for Phil Collins, the divorce woes just keep coming

    If it got to the point where I was in that kind of shape, and loss of dignity became reality, it would be time to eat the gun.

    OT - Tony Bennett reveals he has Alzheimer's

    One of the finest singers I've had the privilege to hear. This sucks big time.

    for Phil Collins, the divorce woes just keep coming

    I don't understand the whole idea of marriage, especially today. Is it the idea of some sort of ownership of another human being? I see not a single advantage.

    Why do people play such bad Cymbals?

    I'd rather have some sheet metal cymbals over some of those foul sounding Istanbul and Bosphorus cymbals everyone goes crazy over, but to me sound like poopy.

    OT - Can we just stop with the GOAT sports comparisons?

    It was a lot harder to quarterback when your receivers were allowed to be mauled by defensive backs and offensive linemen could not extend their arms to block on passing plays. Prior to the 1978 passing rules change, if a quarterback hit on 52% of his passes, he was an all-pro. Today, a...
