Re: IDRUM magazine

So, can somebody can tell me why that M. Johnson guy get so much attention? My best guess is that he devotes 100% of his time to creating video content that drummers want and enjoy, and is pretty inexpensive.

Yes!! 8-)

They're just clear ambassadors, but I like fresh heads on the bottom, so I put new ones on the bottom. After every two or three batter head changes, I take the resonant heads and put them on the batter side.

Not a great performance by any means, but I do like this song.

Sonicbids - AVOID

Just a warning to anyone who may be so inclined to use this service. There seem to be more and more businesses taking advantage of musicians everyday. I can't believe that this service is still operational. http://blog.brandontyler.net/post/486221708/sonicbids-is-a-scam http://paulblow.tripod.com/so...

I met Ted back in the late 80s. Such an amazing, sincere, and humble guy. And man, what an amazing drummer!

Nice work Todd. :) Who's dog is that?
