Drums sound OK....but ....here comes one of my ridiculous criticisms. That's about as uninspired set playing as I've seen...not to say it sounds bad. It sounds good. But dear me please light a fire for the love of God. He's playing down to our mortal level so we can appreciate how they're gonna sou...

Re: Still the best recorded drum sound I've ever heard!

I agree. For what it is, it's a beautiful sound. The tone and resonance of those drums heard on a high quality sound system is amazing. I've discovered that about some other older drum recordings heard on the right equipment. Years ago, I read that Morello switched to DW drums (Collecter's I'm gues...

Re: Evolution of a Drum Solo

Hey Joe, I've admired your clean, precise playing from your past instructional videos. It's also great to hear your description of your approach to soloing.
