poor hands, he is too tense.

but sounds nice : )

 

A tough habit to break but once you master grip control (stop that giggling at the back!) your playing just blossoms.  Tough to let sticks bounce on hard surfaces ;)

We all piss people off. Thing is when we are wrong, we ask for forgiveness and try not to fuck up again. But in leaving, we give them who we wrong time to see that well friends fuck up. When people do things out of malice then by all means do not forgive, but a fuck up is a fuck up. Not one person here alive is perfect, although striving to be perfect is recommended, know that we are not. As for the drummers, holy shit.  :blink:  :ph34r:

I'll be back,  B)

I'm missing spinning tunes already and miss you guys like crazy.  

 

I've made amends for the best part and I've been humbled in the process. I've grown up a lot too and I don't think I'm that guy that messed things up so badly recently. 

I'm still healing and seeing the traffic here caused by the plexstorm overload, I appear to have timed my hiatus well lol  I'm taking more time to perfect my craft, hobbies and passions which is a huge plus to making a better "me" into the bargain :)

 

Love ya all (well, most of ya, some I tolerate for the sake of wellbeing and harmony ;)

Ah yes Matt McGuire. Love his style of playing.
Reminds me of this guy, Mr Michael Shack :)

Mike takes it a step further and live triggers samples along with his playing. I had the pleasure of meeting him back in 2016. An utter gentleman and all round “diamond geezer”

Epic stuff :)

Currently working on my funk chops.
Who better to demonstrate this style than the guy who practically invented funk drumming, the late, great Clyde Stubblefield.

The original funky drummer. He created the most well know beat that has been used throughout the inception of early hip hop and that same beat is sampled even today.

I'm convinced the hip hop genre wouldn't exist without Clyde. Now that's a legacy :)

Another Drummer i had the pleasure of meeting a few years back at a drum clinic at my local drum porn emporium. 

 

Here's Gavin Harrison playing a song that for me optimises the state of today's music industry. Always has me in awe and brings a lump to my throat.

One more for now. 

This woman,  wow! Not only a demon behind the kit but devilishly funny and a drop dead gorgeous smile too. Utterly charming. 

Met her a few months back at a clinic and mind blowingly good is an understatement

(Cheers Brett and Mark making that happen, you guys rock even if Mark can fill 7 sick bags on a flight! what a lightweight! lol)

Okay okay, one more ;)

 

Right, if you didn't know,  Stevie wonder, despite being blind could play any instrument you could give him. For me he is the all time master of his craft. His drumming was spectacular back in the day

Often imitated, seldom perfected. 

 

Here's a direct recording of the drum track for "Superstition" One for the drum geeks like me to enjoy ;)

This song is my all time favourite, even beating Sound of Muzak from Porcupine Tree and Hendrix's "Purple Haze" to that top spot.

Well that would be a hard thing to say but he definitely revolutionized hip hop and also played a pivotal role in shaping hip hop from it's early roots.

My dad has likely influenced me in my selection but I believe Neil Peart to easily be one of the greatest drummers of all time. I am also a big fan of The Beatles thanks to my dad so ofc i would place Ringo Starr very high on this list as well. But my personal favorite drummer of all time would be Dave Grohl, mostly because I was a big fan of Nirvana and and The Foo Fighters are still one of my all time favorite rock bands.

 

Dave Grohl is very talented.

Im gonna stick to my guns with Clyde and hip hop, okay he didn't invent Hip hop as such but his style sure is the backbone.  

 

Ringo was so under rated. Take "Come together" He plays that on the toms for the best part. to play a beat like that and still get your body moving? that's drumming at its best :)

 

Neil is just the professor! Arguably one the greatest of all time.

Dave?  yup watched him grow and grow and just master his craft. Love watching DG play regardless of who he's with. 

 

He played on a track with Trent Reznor and Josh Homme on the "Sound City - Reel to Reel" album. The track is called Mantra and I've taken it as one my go to warm up tracks for practice. It starts simply and becomes more complex as it progresses. Perfect for practice :)  

 

Im gonna add in 2 more of favourites in the next post. I could be here for some time. ;) 

 

Grohl, Reznor and Homme on the same recording, possibly pornographic in audio terms lol 

 

Here ya go:

Okay so now we get to my all time heroes.
Rick has always been an inspiration following his accident. One of those guys who just dusted off his situation, adapted and overcame. Every time I think I can’t accompish something I think of this guy and persevere regardless.
