    I realize that none of the threads with the best this or that drummer rankings are all that serious but personally I hope that after I am gone, people don't compare me to other drummers and musicians just say "I liked playing with him because he could swing" or something like that.

    OT. How Aliens lost me a gig .....

    The current depressed scene allows restaurant gigs with solo/duo acts if provisions are made for spread seating and I had a gig booked for tomorrow. However the pianist is both a conspiracy nut and follower of any alien site and he posted a weird meme on Facebook that I responded to politely but...

    Is a 4 piece kit just being 'lazy" ?

    I saw a comment on a drummer's YouTube video which read "Just a 4 piece ? That's being lazy !!". Naturally being a 4-piece kit player and long favoring such kits, I disagree totally. Any comments ?

    Gigs From Hell

    I am sure we all have them but my favorite is this .....a big city hotel had a very ambitious New Year's Eve event in their spacious and lofty lobby with a 6 tiered stage where a 16 piece band and multiple singers were to be the main event. I was booked to do a 90 minute warm up show in a jazz...
