    Painfully sad article about Neil Peart's final days

    Consider the source, the singer of Godsmack, Sully Erna. However the article appears genuine and just adds to my ongoing heartbreak over this whole tragic situation. "According to Erna, he knew about Peart's battle with brain cancer "for a while," but was "asked, out of respect for Neil and the...

    Drums for Quick Gig

    I play with my 11 y.o.'s acoustic guitar group. Bunch of kids from 7 - 17 y.o. and I am a volunteer instructor and the "house drummer." We play surf songs, Americana, blue grass, pop, etc. and it's all acoustic. A few people plug in acoustics but usually no bass. We have a holiday Christmas...

    Drummer Commercial

    I hate Farmers Insurance. Let's be fair - I don't discriminate - I hate ALL insurance really! But I thought this was funny. I actually saw the ad in a popup and the guy was playing drums and then electrical guitar (one of those 1 man band types), but of course, the main...

    Bucket List - I saw Ringo!!!

    I was talking with Dana Bentley a few months ago and mentioned I need to see Ringo before I die! He told me Ringo is playing in my neck of the woods (Paso Robles - about 1.5 hours south) on Labor Day weekend - ugh! I have an annual camping trip that weekend. But, just the other day, I...

    So I get to the gig and.......

    One of the coolest festivals my 11 y.o. kid's band plays is called West End Art Celebration in Sand City, CA. Lots of bands, stages, vendors, etc. Just a cool, chill vibe. I am the house drummer and volunteer for my son's non-profit acoustic group, called Guitars Not Guns (which my 7 y.o...

    Ludwig Revette Kit???

    Hello, does anyone have one of these? It's based on the classic Jazzette kit with the correct sizes, but it's a 5 ply with oak-3x maple-oak shell. I guess they were a special kit with input from Revival Drum Shop.....interesting....thanks!

    1968 Ludwig WMP Super Classic restore

    Another kit from my DFO buddy, El Larry. This one was in pretty good condition just a bit dirty. Original 13/16/22 with clear maple interiors. No dates inside the toms but you can read the Nov. 6 1968 (faded 6) in the bass. I took everything apart down to the springs. Chrome got a warm water...

    Stupid vintage Ludwig Parts question

    I tore apart a 1968 Ludwig Keystone 22 inch bass drum last nite to the clean up the parts and I am in the process of reassembling it. However, I have these two parts and have no clue what they are for. The drum has 20 lugs, two leg brackets, a third bracket ad a cymbal holder, and a vintage L...

    Beat up Ludwig standard Jazz Fest reborn as a WMP Birthday beauty!

    My DFO buddy, El Larry, hooked me up recently with a sweet 1968 Super classic kit (13/16/22) in a nice creamy WMP about a month ago. Maybe 2 months ago, he hooked me up with a beat up Ludwig Standard "jazz fest" that was on its last leg. When I picked up the WMP kit, he also gave me a vintage...

    Just a snare drum and cymbal!

    So I took the family to Disneyland this past week - my 11 & 7 y.o. boys loved it, of course! At California Adventure, there is a car that drives thru the park with the "Five and Dime" band - think Prohibition-era type music with a flapper girl singer, upright bass, a few horns, and a drummer...

    Dave Grohl's Play???

    I just came across this video by Dave Grohl. I skipped through a few parts that seemed repetitive but sat thru most of it. The guy is tight and can play! I preferred him much more as the drummer of Nirvana than the singer/guitarist of F.F. although he has written plenty of catchy songs. But...

    Monterey Blues Festival gig

    Some of you know I am the "house drummer" for my 11 year old's kids acoustic guitar group. I was brought in last year at the Blues Fest at literally 2 minutes before showtime and asked to play! I've managed to hold the chair since and I volunteer nearly every Saturday helping teach the kids...

    Help me ID Grateful Dead snare drum

    So I am jammin' some vintage Dead and came across a video for Venata, OR, on 8/27/72. I love the Dead and can't get enough, especially 60's - early 70's dead. Just saw Dead & Co. a few weeks ago back-to-back and my spirit is still energized! Anyway, the Europe '72 album (spring '72) has an...
