    Rolling Stones: Totally Stripped

    AXS TV again. Man, what a great view. I saw the Stones "Steel Wheels" stadium show and felt like Mic was the whole show. It was great. This "Totally Stripped" show though, is just awesome! The whole band was excellent. Of course, Chuck Leveall is magic by himself. I have a whole new appreciation...

    The Rise and Fall of Lynyrd Skynyrd

    I watched all of this long doc. on the band. I wasn't into music much from the mid 70s and for a long time afterwards. I was even late to the "Rumors" album. Working long hours. I just heard hits on the radio here and there. AXS TV is allowing me to catch up on a lot of stuff. "Sweet Home...

    Don Henley

    When the Eagles are on AXS TV, I can't quit watching. I have heard a lot on this forum about Don's snare sound. What I haven't heard much about, is his playing. Maybe I missed some threads? Anyway, I really like his playing and the sound of all his drums. He uses the butt of the stick on the...

    I was fortunate

    I met George in high school band as a fellow drummer. He turned me on to Woody Herman, Si Zentner and others swing greats. I loved Jake Hanna. We saw Basie together when we were co stage band drummers. George's mother worked at Tarpleys' music store too. I introduced George to his future wife of...

    Frankie Valli

    Going to see him on Sunday night. Heard that he still has the good falsetto at 82. I expect to be frustrated with the lack of the big bass and drums power background that made me a fan. Plus they think that older people don't want loud music. Who are "they" anyway? Laugh! I will report back...

    Rogers 15" X 12" project tom

    All Rogers Hardware. Big R tom with speckled interior. Wrap it and have a small FT. I am asking $125.00 plus shipping. I spent a lot on the T-rods. (That gray paint is hard to sand off. I would cover over it) I have another bare Swivo shell concert tom the same size. It has re-rings on the...

    New Sony TV

    The old Sony 46" LCD finally started going out. I wanted a bigger one for years, but the price kept going down as the quality went up and the old one kept on going and going. Today they delivered a 65" Sony Bravia OLED. The price on the 2018 was $500 buck cheaper because the 2019 is coming out...

    Early Rogers Beavertail Lugs (a fine point)

    The first beavertails had springs to hold the inserts in place. That, along with heavier lug bodies, made them heavier. It's part of the appeal of the flat gray interior era drums. I don't know exactly when they went to C-clips to hold the inserts in place. It's the other end of the spectrum...

    Final Touches (I think) Mardi Gras Re-Wrap Snare

    I got stuck on finishing this snare until member Idrum4fun was nice enough to send me a lug insert. One of the lugs would not take a rod without hard turning. At the bottom of page 10 in the previous Mardi Gras thread, you can see the pictures that Precision took of the donor drum and the work...

    Rogers Beavertail Lug C-clip Insert/ Found

    Not the ones for the spring type of lugs. I have one on my Mardi Gras snare that is too tight. Thanks Ace

    OT-Road Trip

    So Karen and I drove from Houston to East Meadow New York for her class reunion. Saw Graceland, Monticello, Smithsonian and drove down into Manhattan. What is the deal with all of these truck drivers blocking the Interstates? They drive right next to each other and back up traffic. Virginia is...

    Best Buy BS

    They now have a 3rd party company that keeps track of your returns. BB used to push the 30 day return policy. Now it is 15. In the last year I returned an HDMI cable for a more expensive one. I also returned a Firestick for a Roku. I had one other return. Now I can't buy anything for a year and...

    OK, so now the XFinity 4K DVR box is finally out. Got mine today. Has to be ordered, but is free and no higher monthly fee. So I found out the hard way that XFinity Streaming ( all you current cable channels) doesn't work with the FireStick or Chromecast. Comcast only has a deal with Roku...
