    Long Beach California Drum Shops

    Definitely go to Pro Drum. If you're not familiar with Los Angeles traffic, give yourself plenty of time. Traffic can be a nightmare! Also if you're a fan of artery clogging chili burgers, go to Tommy's Original Burgers in Hollywood at Beverly and Rampart streets. There's also a Tommy's in Long...

    OT: Summer Reading

    Just finished Mel Torme"s biography of Buddy Rich: "Traps. The Drum Wonder". I understand that Buddy Rich wanted Torme to write his biography. It was well done and told by an old friend, warts and all!

    RIP Alan White
