    How to avoid steep angle on toms

    I am 59 years old and only in the last few months did I finally figure out I should raise my stool a lot higher. Now my drums are lower and more parallel to the ground and I find it has improved my drumming. Never too old to learn!

    Keith Moon strikes out at the Record Plant

    Keith Moon is one of my favourite drummers of all time - top 3. We sometimes forget how unorthodox his drumming was back in the 60's / early 70's. He invented a certain style. You watch / read interviews with Daltrey and Townsend about the era of Who's Next - Quadrophenia. I remember one...

    Did you learn to play drums by ear?

    I took exactly one lesson when I was starting out as a kid. I did take lessons for a couple of years in my 40's when i got back into drumming after about a 20 year lay off

    Rock Songs with Great Hi-Hat Work?

    I always thought that Swingtown by Steve Miller is pretty relentless on the hi hats. Although the bass drum is more difficult.

    OT: THE Rolling Stones

    I am a big fan of the Stones. I love the country influenced songs especially as mentioned the Gram Parsons era. My favourite Stones era is the Mick Taylor years, but I have been a fan fo close to 50 years - probably my favourite band of all time. Tatoo You is so good because most of those...
