    Who Played the Biggest Drumset with a Touring Band?

    The "Fake Artists" problem?

    Although the "vocaloid" looks dazzling and lightshow-awesome, I'm glad that Japanese hologram technology hasn't caught on here in the U.S. If I had to choose between Miley or Madonna, I'd rock with Madonna. lol I've followed her since her very first appearance on American Band Stand back in the...

    The "Fake Artists" problem?

    Hanah Montana was as real as a flock of galloping yellow elephants. I'm not a Miley Cyrus fan, but at least she ditched the Hanah Montana schtick and did her own thing. I'm still not a fan of hers. Just saying. The Mini Vanilli case busted open a can of worms, tho.

    That's awesome how your bassist friend moved up in that aspect. I hope I can at least go far enough as to record (basic demos and live shows) for local bands, before I lose any more of my hearing! lol
