    Bon Scott AC/DC or Brian Johnson AC/DC?

    I love them both...however I am definitely in the Phil Rudd camp as opposed to Simon Wright or Chris Slade...the change in drummers bothered more to me than the change in singers....

    Best compliment you've received about your drumming?

    After a session in a nice recording studio the engineer told me I was the second best drummer he had recorded in twenty years. I asked who the first was expecting some big name guy or well known local hotshot. Nope...it was some twelve year old kid lol!

    What's the worst backline kit you've ever played?

    Play a festival one afternnoon..everything is provided..Except parking. I park half a mile away as this is the only spot I can find. 20,000 people packed into a tiny ski resort town. Get to the stage....no throne or bass drum pedal! I always have my gear just in case. I trudge back to the car...

    I finally understand Ringo!

    I don't think guitar players or any other musicians argue over the technical brilliance of other players like we drummers do. I've never heard another guitar player put down David Gilmour for playing so few notes in his solos....if anything they love the genius in how the notes were perfect even...

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

    My guitarist buddy and I are trying to find a bass player...after one contacts me and before we try him out I find him on F.B and check his page out to root out weirdos and politics we don't agree with...saves time and trouble down the road. The op confirms my belief is correct.

    Hearing protection/ sound mix question

    https://www.earplugstore.com/howard-leight-sync-amfm-radio-earmuffs.html?cmp=bing How about these? I use them with my acoustic kit...They greatly reduce the volume of the drums and the music pumps into the headphones at a nice comfortable volume because the drums are quiet...basically a...

    Dave Getz, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Piece of my Heart.

    There's a lot more to playing this tune well than "playing it straight". Here's my humble attempt.

    New Kit

    That's a pretty kit. I've played that exact kit at a casino as backline a few times and loved it. It's what made me start looking at these kits. When I saw that price I jumped on it.
