    Beach Boy memouires

    Saw Mike Love at a concert last summer. The band was good, and he sang OK, but I think some may have been pre-recorded. He was very cordial and fun to the audience. Didn't hear anything bad from the back stage guys. I didn't read either book, so I can't help there. Take a look at this book...

    Need monitor help/advice please

    Thanks for the replies. I am currently using my own powered monitor, but it's the mix. Some stuff isn't mic'd and he has a hard time getting what is mic'd into my monitor mix. His equipment is kind of older and not the best which doesn't help. I need a way to get everything into my monitor...

    Need monitor help/advice please

    When we play out, I always have a hard time hearing the band because our monitor situation sucks. Some of the instruments (keyboards) are not mic'd, and the guy that runs the PA and does the sound (a friend, band member and owner of the sound system so we're stuck with him) isn't too good at...

    Ear Plug Advice Requested

    This is the correct answer. My best friend is an ENT doc. I asked him about this a long time ago, and he said I was nuts to use anything other than custom made plugs. I've used them ever since. I've personally done a lot of research on this and I think the Entymotic er-20 are the best of the...

    Loving this

    Commercial or not, I love it because the musicianship is excellent. And I like the song. Plus, I think that's an Acro. :happy7:

    Hey All, I'll be gone for a couple of weeks on my bike ride

    Have a good ride! I don't know how you do it. I ride for an hour and I've got pain in areas I won't mention on a G rated internet forum. :laughing6:

    Shuffle (Purdie/Porcaro) ghost notes...

    An update- I've been working on the groove a little (not nearly enough) and it sure is tough for me. It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks. I've made a little progress, but it's going to take a lot of work and a long time (maybe never) before it gets good enough to play it in front of anyone...

    How Bad Was Your First Drum Set??

    Sears kit in blue sparkle, 1967. The drums served me well for several years. I still have the floor tom, which I recovered. I still use it on my beater kit. The cymbals were terrible, and eventually I upgraded my ride to a "Krut". The terrible pedal eventually broke and I bought my first decent...
