Re: Big Weckl announcement?

Ok, here's my vote... Besides having a somewhat festive title, I think this tune will fit perfectly in the ' This is Rock ' section. As you can see from the video, it's just 4/4 'straight ahead bashing, you know... no dynamics ' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4A_tSyJBsRQ Meshuggah - New Millenium C...

Re: Steve Smith

It's interesting....Steve Smith has been an amazing player for decades, and he has taken it to an uncommonly high level in terms of technique, stylistic diversity, etc., but a lot of the stuff he does nowadays just doesn't move me like his output with Journey, early Vital Information, Steps Ahead, e...

I guess I don't see the big deal about Portnoy in general....Though to be fair, most rock drummers aren't great at soloing.

You know what they say...one MP drumkit can be enough to supply a poor village. :|

Re: Meet the new boss

Man, my generation (Millenials/Generation Y) is responsible for a lot of the illegal downloading that threatens the music industry (and other creative industries as well)...and I hate that fact. It's understandable though, if in a sad way: we've grown up right as the Internet has exploded in mass co...

Re: Dave DiCenso Interview is up!!

Very interesting interview! I liked the bit in Part 2 about thinking in musical shapes, as opposed to thinking in rudiment stickings. That really is bigger picture, musical thinking, and it's something that a lot of players don't really grasp (especially younger, less experienced players...like me! ...

OT (sorta:) Saw Styx last night...

Great band, great sound, great venue, great performance. And the drummer wasn't half bad, I must say..... ;) (understatement of the century! :| ) Lots of good tunes were played, like "Lorelei", "Man in the Wilderness", and "Crystal Ball." Anyway, carry on, my friends....
