Re: The Best & Worst Things Of Being An Older Drummer

I just turned 58 a couple weeks ago and I realized I've been at this for 54 years (played my first gig for cash at the age of 4). Best...everything! I'm more in demand now than ever, playing regularly with 5 different bands and a couple of "off-shoots." My playing is so much more focused,...

Re: SIMON PHILLIPS - Lee Ritenour & Mike Stern videos

I think the most impressive thing to me is Simon's time... which has always been pretty Immaculate. It's ridiculous in this live clip too. I've seldom heard the guy waiver. I actually prefer Simon's drum sounds from a few years ago, and back from there. In recent years I'm not keen on the rather br...

Re: Vinnie signs deal with Paiste.

i think the intro would've been better w/ him playing w/ the various lines of cymbals while explaining why he liked it. much like the video he did for the A-customs back in the day. basically it sounded like Vinnie having to explain to us why he chose PAISTE.
