    Had to put my 16 yr old dog down and I can't get over it...

    First...I am NOT a depressive person. Anyone that knows me will tell you that. But yesterday kicked my ass... My little buddy hit a low point this weekend where he could even hardly walk anymore. He would fall over and had stopped eating and drinking. He was already mostly blind and deaf...

    OT - Any albums make you cry?

    Just wondering.... I have always loved melancholy music in the minor key with abstract style lyrics. But one work almost brings a tear to my eye every damn time I listen to it. That's the album "Wish You Were Here". Not sure why... Something about the theme of absence put to the Gm key and those...

    One World Concert last night.....

    Sorry but I couldn't watch much past the first five or six acts. I thought it was horrible. Watching people play a piano and singing acapella just demonstrates that without great songwriting, a backing band, a mix of all of the bells and whistles and great engineering and producing....many...

    Where is the Annual Super Bowl Halftime Show Thread?

    Couldn't find it? Is it because the halftime show has devolved into nothing that even remotely involves live musicians anymore? I would have rather watched a high school marching band then a bunch of people bouncing around like freaking animals. Oh well....I will soon go the way of the dinosaurs...

    What do you consider an "acoustic" gig?

    What about using amps or mics for an acoustic gig? Why do I ask? Have an outdoor gig coming up. This is an outdoor gig next to a highway. I've NEVER played an outdoor gig without some amplification. Hell.....even in jail last night I played in a small room and the ceiling was chain links in...

    One knee down....one to go!

    Just had my first replacement Tuesday. If all goes well the second one will be scheduled for around end of year. One problem I will face with my knees during Rehab is that I had a stroke in 2009 and lost much of my muscle's capability in my legs. Basically, the nerves do not fire all of the...

    OT - Can PP reach into bank and grab money back?

    I sell a lot on EBay and for the first time a customer wanted a refund even though I do not offer returns. It wasn't on anything I misrepresented but they basically bought the wrong item. This happened about a week after the transaction because the buyer changed their mind after receiving the...

    Ebay Sales Tax Question...

    I am sure that most of you who sell or buy on Ebay have received notice that sales tax will be collected and sent to the State automatically. Let me ask....those of us who live in a State that hasn't enacted legislature to allow a Nexus for this, will sales tax still be charged to the buyer? As...

    Identify this kit for me...

    A friend of mine died and her wife is selling his kit. He bought them about 8 years ago and the cymbals are Tama Stagestar. What model is this kit? I assume it is a cheap model that doesn't have any resale value but wanted to ask you guys first. Thanks

    Are any classic rockers worth seeing anymore in 2019?

    Has father time finally killed the classic rock concert scene? I've been getting my regular email "updates" and it seems no one is left that I would remotely pay hundreds of dollars for a ticket anymore? I hadn't seen a "classic" rock show in a long time and I feel myself getting old do to the...

    How do you copy music if it isn't even music?

    Black Mirror Ashley O....

    Anyone check this out. Don't know if they meant it to be a symbol of what is wrong with music today but I found it just that. Was shocking when they referred to Sonic Youth as a "vintage band" :shock:

    Another uncomfortable situation with Drummer...

    Ok....one of the places I play is at church but I play guitar. We have been looking for a drummer for a while and finally the Bass player (who is also the informal guy in charge) brings in older guy (about 65) that used to play drums there about 15 years ago. Me, the Sax player and the Violinist...

    18" kick....wasn't impressed.

    As the saying goes: "There is no replacement for displacement" Ok....played a gig the other night at a bar on a small stage. FYI...I played Bass guitar so I stood in front/beside the drummer all night. Anyway, the drummer used a small USA Gretstch kit with an 18 in kick. I could never hear the...

    OT - Does anyone still watch The Walking Dead?

    Been watching from the beginning but I am about to give up. Anyone else hanging in there?

    School me on Rick Allens kit....

    I know this is an OLD topic but I saw Def Leppard on the tube lately and it makes me wonder what are the details of Rick Allens kit? How is it tricked out to accommodate his playing? He sure sounds damn good!!!

    This is getting downright silly....

    I posted a thread a while ago about Kenny Aronoff appearing at any and every tribute or musical event. Here it is: http://www.drumforum.org/threads/damn-im-seeing-that-bald-head-again.159820/page-2 But since then I have seen him on two other tributes plus with John Fogerty (recorded 5-6 years...

    Spent the last two nights gigging with two different drummers. One I have known for years...and one I just met tonight. First...last nights gig....We are playing outside for two hours at a business and the drummer (who I have known for years) is playing brushes with a full DW kit. That's fine...

    Damn...I'm seeing that bald head again!!!

    Does anyone out there get more work and respect than Kenny Aronoff? There was a thread last year about him playing in every tribute concert known to man so tonight I flip on AXS channel and the "Walk the Line" tribute concert is on and who do I see.....you got it....the bald master holding down...
