Re: Big Weckl announcement?

Re: New kit with a 5 month wait for now non-standard sizes.

I got flooded too last Autumn. Everything in the basement was damaged BUT my drums. My 2 kits were pilled in the only salvaged corner, ouf! I also waited 8 monthsfor the Yam MC 15" tom of a kit. Like everybody back in the day, I was "dangerously" becoming a Weckl clone with 8"+10...

Re: Long Distance Drum Lessons...

Re: Long Distance Drum Lessons...

My teaching philosophy is that if you want to study with someone then you go to his teaching place and agree to his conditions; students have to be motivated enough.

Re: From drums to guitar

Yes, It Might Get Loud is good! 3 totally different approaches. II go see Steve Vai next month. Anyone know who's on drums for his current tour?
