Re: Yogi Horton

There is a SMOKIN DVD of Yogi playing live with Bob James called "Live From The Queen Mary," and his groove, and a brief solo is off the hook!!! He is on a bunch of the Ashford and Simpson (and Luther Vandross I think?) stuff too. Marcus Miller LOVED his playing. Yogi always sort of remind...

Re: Best Bags & Cases

All the guys that I know that do "light" touring (vans, planes occasionally, one tech tours, and busses) do this. You have good bags for all of your drums, that serves local gigs. Then you have the hard "plastic cannister" cases (Protechtor or something of the sort) for potential...

Re: John Riley bustin'

Rodge, Terry, Clint, etc... Thank you, and, you are very welcome! I'm sorry that I don't have more time to chime in here, but I'm pretty busy (writing, playing, some teaching, etc...) Glad you guys still remember that MD stuff, I spent a lot of time researching and had a ball writing those. I have b...

Re: John Riley bustin'

Dave, That’s a good question, and a tough one to answer. First let me offer some background that will help my answer. I know this isn’t a question about “me.” But I think I have to qualify my answer. I am 40 years old. When I was a student of John’s I was a student at William Paterson, and it was al...

Re: John Riley bustin'

Terry, There was nothing "basically" about it. He LANDED the Zappa gig! I haven't seen the article but I remember John telling me about this in lessons, I always wondered when he would let the cat out of the bag. For anyone who (incorrectly) is surprised by John's versatility. I will sugge...

Re: Vinnie's ride on 'Secrets'

"Secrets" was waaay before A Customs. And if I remember correctly, right around the time of the original K Custom Rides. BUT.... Vinnie has a killer old A 22" that he records with a lot. The old Platinums, and some of the original buffed out Brilliants, came close to that old aged A s...

Re: Jeff Porcaro: isolated "Beat It" track

I hear ya' Rodge. When I PLAY or PERFORM, I HAVE TO (and prefer to) think in a MUCH less analystic way (more "animal" as I think you put it.) However, when I REALLY want to learn about something, or when I really want to convey (teach about) an idea or concept, I have found that that "...

Re: Jeff Porcaro: isolated "Beat It" track

There is A LOT to be learned from this track, firstly thanks for the person who posted it. Listen to how low the drum track is mixed on the recording (you could almost not realize it's there,) and how high the machine is mixed, interesting. Yet, Jeff's part still has so strong of an affect on the to...

Re: Name changes!!

The new site looks great Steve!!! I can't even imagine how much time this stuff must take, damn, and thanks. My real name is Mark Griffith, there is (or maybe was) a link to my Vic Firth, and my Paiste endorser pages (as well as to a page for the label that I have recorded for) that all have my name...
