    Who’s Hyped for the Genesis Reunion Tour?

    In his defense, who wouldn't want to share the stage with their kid, especially since he's more than up to the task?

    Matt Chamberlain

    Damn, everything he plays has such a great feel! This was the first one that made me fall off my chair and look for more tracks he played on:

    Drummer autographs

    I've only asked for autographs at after gig meet and greets. I've got Bill Bruford, Pat Mastelotto, Steve Smith, Virgil Donati and maybe a few others.

    Who’s Hyped for the Genesis Reunion Tour?

    Saw them years ago (Abacab tour) but even though I like the band and they are coming to Buffalo, there are only a couple bands I'm willing to shell out triple figures for (which I'm assuming tix will run), and they are not one of them.

    No shortage of jobs available for lazy journalism.

    What would you do?

    Playing devil's advocate, I'd ask myself "At this point in my life am I ready for this change? For something drastically different." As I nudge closer towards retirement I think Ill still be playing in my mid and late 60's. But what if an opportunity came up for us to say, retire and move to...

    Guitar teacher talks about how changes in music consumption changed his students

    He's not wrong. Nameless, faceless music. I'm glad to have grown up when I did, devouring whole albums and then CD's. Building a love for what musicians spent time on. I agree with a lot of what he says, especially how getting everything you want for free seems to make me not really care for or...

    Drum Solo Time

    Aside from what Neil used to do, the extended rock drum solo bores me. I am a fan of the jazz or fusion solos taken in the context of the tune. Where the drummer takes a brief solo like the guitarist, bass, sax, etc would. I find those a lot more musical.

    Who had the best ''Sonor'' Kits?

    I like AC/DC and Phil is solid, but you're right. No one ever said "Gotta get me a Rudd Sonor kick and snare combo".

    Who had the best ''Sonor'' Kits?

    I like Gavin Harrison's kit, though I just saw he has a stunning new one. I'll take this one off his hands if he needs the room.

    Shipping whole drumsets

    I wouldnt say one company is better or worse than another. Ive used both and they both had me open the boxes to inspect before shipping out insured. Its a crap shoot, but a costly time consuming one. Though I dont move a lot of gear, I'm sticking with pickup. Id even drive a few hours than deal...

    Yes, back to drumming indeed! Amazing that thread on Moeller goes down one of those paths. Thanks for all the suggestions!

    Vic Firth "Vic Kick" Wood Shaft Beater

    I've had one now for about a year and a half and love it. Great control especially at lower volumes and great tone on the drum. For me, with doubles at medium and lower volumes, it helps me not wiff on the first beat if that makes sense. Probably due to its balance. Worth the $25 or so.

    Moeller technique videos

    There are a lot of YouTube videos on the Moeller Technique but I'm wondering if anyone has watched/worked through any they've found particularly insightful. Yeah a teacher would be best, but not during these times. Thought I might see if I can make any progress on my own. Thanks!

    DFO shirts and hats?

    Mine bit the dust since the last run so I'd love one, but from what I remember it can be kind of a hassle to put this together. Cant imagine anyone chomping at the bit to take this on.
