Re: Looking For a Mentor

Seems to me you're getting some mentoring right here. House of Drumming - the Home of Multiple Mentors! In your pursuit of Drumming Excellence, it can be valuable to know what you really want, and why. Can the words from your brain tell you? Can the feelings from your heart show you? When you envisi...

Re: Looking For a Mentor

Looking for a mentor so soon? I thought your finger was falling off last week. :| I was thinking the same thing, but I wasn't going to say it. I also thought, that while you're at it, you should find a sparring partner, to knock some sense into you! Seriously, though, I'm glad you're apparently as ...

We can see some Torsos in the band, and the great Wah Wah Watson on guitar.

Re: New video of myself

Love that yellow kit (I've seen pics you've posted before)! And I like to see you just groovin' without using the toms, also. That clip made me feel good, and I think that's a good thing to take into account when you decide on how you want to approach a tune. One of the reasons I like grooving in th...

Re: A Letter from Bob Moses to the Boston Phoenix (2001)

As much as I understand that he really knew the work and life of Mingus, and he's disappointed that someone does not make justice to what it is that he knows so well... it just doesn't give him the right to make such Godlike statements. Everyone sees the world differently, everyone expresses themse...

Re: NAMM

The Gretsch kit certainly is beautiful, but it looks an awful lot like a car from the '50's...

Re: What do you guys do with your old heads?

I wasn't really being serious, but I did try it recently. About 20 years ago a homeless guy approached me with a 16" Ludwig floor tom that he wanted $20 bucks for; how could I resist? I guess I should have, because it's done nothing except sit around until recently, when I thought I'd pull it o...

Re: Finally !! Modern Drummer...Greatest Drummer...Ever !

OK, I just finished reading it for the third time.

Still funny as hell!

Classic!

And very well written.
