Re: Female Drummers

In my honest humble opinion there still isn't a female out there with the groove consistency phrasing and musicality of a male. The top 50 drummers of every genre are all male. The best and busiest all around drummers are all male. I still haven't heard a female drummer who can play high level time....

Re: Steve Hass new youtube channel!

Just caught a clip of Hass on the Today show with Patti Austin. It was jazz trio and it was swinging so hard. without rushing or laying back. http://www.today.com/toyotaconcertseries/hoda-jbh-sing-backup-patti-austin-2D79310791 The man's time is sickening. It's strange to me how the most working dru...

Re: Do big name guys get honest constructive feedback?

Great topic, and no. They do not. Players who are going from gig to gig, tour to tour and session to session, are already giving musicians and artists high quality drumming. They don't care about opinions. The best opinion they can get is from when they record themselves. They all have a sound and v...

Interesting 2 drum setup and approach here. Very different for Steve. I have to say, I love the groove, looseness and form of this improv.

Re: Russ Miller leaves Yamaha- Yamaha moving to China?

From Sakae Facebook page (above the pic posted): "Legendary drummer Peter Erskine with our Trilogy Series during his tour in Japan" I know I sound like a broken record, but if all these top names switching around their gear tells you anything at all, it's that I nail it when I say it's AL...

Re: Monster musicians backing mainstream stars

I'm not sure what the point of this post is. I always thought contemporary drummers worked hard specifically to get those kind of gigs. It's not as if they can make a living in a dissolved studio scene or by playing $100 club gigs. They want the paycheck and really, you must be a highly developed ti...

Wow. 100 medium? Not for me. Love how easy the single strokes are for him. Those are extremely difficult to maintain with just a single kick. Keeping the H.H going is just another level. My legs hurt thinking about it.

Re: SIMON PHILLIPS - The thread about Simon

Simon is a perfect example of how jazz drummers who later fused rock and jazz(Billy Cobham, Tony Williams), had such a huge effect on rock drummers. Influenced by two pioneering jazz drummers, Simon doesn't play a note of jazz. He's a rock drummer, and yet because of his influences he has a jazz phr...

Re: Russ Miller leaves Yamaha- Yamaha moving to China?

Of course! But that doesn't mean that you're endorsing the product. An endorsement is a business relationship. Vinnie has a set of Sabians at his house too. I'm sure he gets sent great new gear from many companies. How many times do you sit behind someone's kit and it inspires you because it has a d...
