Oh.

Now I feel dumb.


No, no, don't feel dumb. It was an excellent performance. That song is not easy. Lots of nuance there and he made the pocket section groove.

This is how tenor players find employment after they age out of DCI.

The music is from the Tommy Igoe books. He plays it pretty close to the way Igoe played it.

Re: dave dicenso's update! and old video

There are many. You're only really seeing the few who have the opportunity and know the right people. To certain extent I think you're right. Just in terms of the math, there have to be amazing drummers out there who chose different career paths or had unusual obstacles to bigger success, and I oft...

Re: Guitar Center Drum Off 2010

Every GC Drum Off thread requires the GC Drum Off police, I guess, just to insure anyone who might find some kind of value in it is reminded of its lack of value. Not so harsh in this thread, though, so kudos to all of you for restraining yourself from some of the nastier things said about this even...

Re: Really Complicated Drumming

Re: My 10th year on HOD

Vinnie is so last decade. We're all about Dave DiCenso now, remember?

Re: dave dicenso's update! and old video

Downloaded Two Ton Shoe's "Resoled." It's from 2002, recorded right before Dave left the band. Great stuff. DiCenso plays real aggressive, really pushes that band to play. He and the bass player had a great musical relationship. It's the kind of band I dream of forming some day ... sociall...

Re: My 10th year on HOD

Congrats! I guess this would my 10th year, too. I met Randy through the board in 2000.
