Re: HODers VIDEOS TOPIC - Your own drum videos here

I'll bite. First post in quite some time. Don't play much at all these days simply due to my lifestyle and (I guess this goes hand in hand with lifestyle) because the ends just don't justify the means anymore. It's fun to look back at this stuff as I haven't seen it myself in a while. Lots of great ...

...and y'all wonder why people come and go here. I'll admit that I lurk from time to time, and appreciate when good discussion is had. But the discussion quickly becomes so hostile... ...that being said: I think we need to be thinking about what Vinnie says regarding the industry, what we're all say...

Getting back out there- Goals for 2015?

After a couple years of getting settled back in LA, a little day gig and/or financial drama, replacing stolen gear, etc, I've decided it's time for me to get back out there and play much more than I have done in 2014. This year in hopes of getting some more gigs I'm working on swallowing my pride an...

Re: SIMON PHILLIPS - The thread about Simon

He's playing a Yamaha kit there, probably what was in the house. Doesn't really matter, as his touch (even in the lower quality audio) really provides his sound.
