Re: Neal Peart: The Drum Solo of Life

Heard the news while driving in my car. Had to pull over to the shoulder to digest the news. So sad!

We've lost 2 of my favorite drummers recently...Ginger Baker and now Neil.

RIP Neil.

RIP Mr. Baker. I started playing drums in 1969. Cream had already disbanded, but Ginger was my drumming idol. When I could afford to upgrade to a name brand drumkit (around 1983), I got a Ludwig silver sparkle double-bass kit. Even have the larger left bass drum like Ginger had. For many years, I se...

I spend many hours searching through Bandcamp. There is a huge amount of music available from established artists as well as unknowns. The music of many Wigglers is available on Bandcamp. In response to Gringo Starr, my son would also probably pick the 60's and 70's. But, I think he is outside the n...

If people had to pick two decades between the 1950s and now and those are the only two decades of music they could listen to for the rest of their lives I wonder how many people would pick the last two decades. I suspect that the response to this question closely correlates to the age of the respon...

Somewhat more contemporarily: - Radio Massacre International member Steve Dinsdale sometimes plays an acoustic drum kit in their concerts. - Ron Boots (from the Netherlands) often performs with drummer Harold van der Heijden. Although Harold plays an electronic, not acoustic, kit. - Keller & Schonwa...

Klaus Schulze performed some gigs with a live drummer (I believe it was Harold Grosskopf). Schulze was part of Stomu Yamashta's Go which also included Michael Shrieve, Al Di Meola and Steve Winwood.

Tangerine Dream had a live drummer (Klaus Krieger) for a couple of years in the early 80's.

I've been a big Hawkwind fan since '72 and have been a big fan of Daevid Allen era Gong. I find the Ozrics to be a blend of Hawkwind and Gong. The first Ozrics track that I heard (don't remember what it was) blew me away. I have about 25 of their CD's. :mrgreen: I know they've toured in the US a cou...

So far, I have listened to all 16 CD's. It was like visiting an old friend who had some new secrets to share with me. I hadn't listened to many of those albums in many years. Brought back lots of good memories.

Now..on to the Blu-ray's.

It looks to me like this hanger will hold 120 or so 1/4" cables. The recommendation is to use a microphone stand with it. I would be nervous about using a mic stand with this many cables. I had attached 2 Pomona cable hangers back-to-back on a 2x4 and then drilled a hole to slide it on top of a mic ...

A couple of our cats loved to lay on my mixers (talk about uncomfortable with all those knobs sticking up :doh: ). Then one of our cats hacked up a hairball on my Roland RD-300S. Fortunately, it was a rather dry hairball, and I was able to clean it (very little crud got down between the keys). The n...
