Re: Seeking Justice for Musicians in Jazz Clubs

It also is very telling about you as a player - You obviously do not play live music. You have no idea what you are talking about. It's pretty rare I'll call someone out, but that there tells me you are not a player. Uh, I can vouch for DSOP-and I don't know him well, but I know others who do. Don'...

Re: Jeff Porcaro....

Jeff's influence is monumental and deeply felt by a mass legion of drummers. Most of the country guys will cite Jeff as a main influence in their playing. I love Jeff's work. It's amazing to turn on the radio or walk into a store and hear a song that has his amazing, untouchable feel. I love hearin...

Re: Jeff Porcaro....

Jeff was the first pop/rock drummer I ever studied intensely (I was raised on jazz; my father was a pro jazz bass player back in the day). The Seventh One was my object of focus. I must have heard that album hundreds and hundreds of times around 1990 (I didn't get it until a few years after it was ...

Re: Carlock moves to Grestch

I´m not an expert in endorsing, but it´s hard to believe that Vinnie doesn´t get paid by Getsch. His status as musician and exposure that he does with his gear are on the TOP, so it´s hard to believe. And he is not doing clinics organized by Gretsch or any company, so...¿ just free gear ? Don't mis...

Jeff Porcaro....

This August 5 will mark the 20th anniversary of Jeff Porcaro's passing.

I understand that some people here knew him (some well....). If you feel moved to share any stories, funny or serious, happy memories, cool musical moments from Jeff, that would be great. :)

Thanks!

Re: Musical individuality: some questions to ponder....

You can look at almost any drummer playing for a decent amount of time, 10 years say, and tell exactly what music they listen too, what they practice, who are their influences... Yeah, but you can do that with ANYONE to an extent. I mean, experienced ears can still tell these days that Vinnie was n...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chris-castle/bob-ludwig_b_1175536.html Great article. Thanks. "At some point, the music is so loud and unnaturally compressed that the aural assault on the ear, while very impressively loud, has sucked the life out of the music and makes the listener subconsciousl...

Re: Musical individuality: some questions to ponder....

Touch, feel, and your take on what's happening. That's it. Hardly. You can't have touch and feel without developing an innate sense of control, which only comes from countless hours of practicing that level of control. Nobody just sits down and PLAYS. Every drummer who is idolized, on this forum, a...
