    Rebeats Chicago Show: What are you bringing to sell/trade, looking for, or displaying?

    Post any of the above. I'm looking for a Thermogloss 'Ritchie' set and bringing a bunch of snares for sale or trade. I'll post my snare list after I've decided which of 'my preciouses' I'm bringing. Might also be bringing a 60's Super classic set if I can get the dang nickel polishing completed!

    Ringo's Hollywood Set: When the switch to calfskin

    In Get Back, it looks like he is using 'regular' heads, but in many interviews, talking of AR in particular, he has said he switched to calfskin. Are my deceiving me, or perhaps it was after the Get Back sessions? Any thoughts or insights?

    Paging Mr. Astridge! (Or anyone else). RS is using a rectangular 'ring', and, of course, I need one! Any idea of make/model? Thanks, Troy

    Martin Chambers

    Finally is on the latest Pretenders lp, 'Hate For Sale', having been sidelined by studio cats since 2002's lp. There's just something about his playing that 'makes' the band become The Pretenders. Influential, for me, from self titled to today.

    OT-Historic Day, Woolton Fete

    Between sets at this Garden 'fair', McCartney meets the Quarrymen and things wouldn't be the same. I say one of the most important days in rock history.

    Ben Dixon on Patton's 'Along Came John'

    Digging his drumming on this release. (I'm not familiar with him at all.) Not as intricate as some but not a basher, either. 'Gee Gee' is a good example. Check it out on youtube.
