Scot Halpin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scot_Halpin) - A dream come true

I always thought this was a myth, but found out it is a dream that many think about. Filling in the shoes on stage.

For not playing in a year and then suddenly on stage with The Who sitting at Keith Moon's set, you have to have balls, confidence and a mark in history.

Neil Peart Taking Center Stage: Lifetime of Live Performances (Oct 14, 2011)

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51JmOpnDLxL._SL500_AA300_.jpg)

The cover depicts a photo of Neil Peart throwing a drum stick up in the air which you can check out here. At the time of the update he'd also launched a website for the book at TakingCenterStage.net (http://takingcenterstage.net/), but the content has yet to be updated; it has only a photo along with links to a Facebook page and Twitter feed (neither of which have been updated recently).

Quote
Filmed in various locations over the course of a year, Neil Peart takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at Rush's 2010-11 Time Machine tour. This includes rare and exclusive footage of Neil's personal pre-tour rehearsals and backstage events at a Rush concert (including a visit to the soundcheck, and an unprecedented backstage interview as Neil warms up for the show). Neil also presents a detailed look at every single song in the tour's set list. Each song features analysis and demonstrations by Neil, which are coupled with a detailed PDF eBook containing transcription of his parts. At the end of each song discussion, the viewer is transported onstage to a Rush concert to see the actual live performance of the song from the perspective of the drum cameras only. 6 hours, 40 minutes.

Quote
... The theme for our next collaboration seemed obvious: live performance, preparing for it and surviving it. In early 2010 we began collecting material, now augmented by a new member of the Hudson Music team, Joe Bergamini. ... In April, 2010, the Hudson Music crew joined me at Drum Channel in Oxnard, California, and filmed several days of my rehearsals for the Time Machine tour. In July they filmed an entire Rush show, in Saratoga Springs, New York, with supplementary "drum-cams" on me. They also captured the soundcheck and pre-show warmup, when I did a bit of talking to the camera, as I had during the Drum Channel filming in April. However, we would need to shoot some more "talkie bits" to go before each of the songs from the live show, explaining about special problems or challenges in a particular song, and technical highlights. ...

Early Beatles letter seeking drummer sells for $55,000

(http://msnbcmedia4.msn.com/j/ap/britain%20beatles%20letter--1223083270_v2.grid-4x2.jpg)

Quote
LONDON — A handwritten letter written by Paul McCartney on Aug. 12, 1960 inviting an unnamed drummer to audition for a place in the Beatles has sold at Christie's for 34,850 pounds ($55,000 US).

The document was discovered folded up in a book purchased at a car boot sale in Liverpool, birthplace of the Fab Four.

It had been expected to fetch 7-9,000 pounds at a rock and pop memorabilia sale at Christie's in London late on Tuesday.
Story: Early Paul McCartney letter offers drummer tryout

Shortly after the letter was written, the newly-formed Beatles traveled to Hamburg, Germany, to play a series of gigs as they set out on the road to superstardom.

According to online Beatles timelines, drummer Pete Best joined the Beatles on Aug. 12. He was thrown out of the band two years later and replaced by Ringo Starr.

The auctioneer said the letter was one of the earliest examples of the band being referred to as the Beatles.
Story: 'Mad Men' creator wants modern ending for show

It was also important to pop historians because it suggested McCartney was seeking an alternative to Best until the last minute and knew more about the details of the Hamburg trip than previously thought.

The top lot of the sale, fetching 97,250 pounds, was a hand-written sign reading "BED PEACE" displayed during one of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's famous "bed-ins" for peace in 1969.

Hmmmm, I thought I mentioned this before. Neil Peart lives with his motorcycle practically. I've read all his books which are fascinating. One in particular due to the similar situation he went through with his wife and daughter. He does an excellent job of writing to keep things interesting. Believe me, it's not much about drumming. It's about his cross country adventures and music. The Africa one is on bicycle... not motorcycle. It's more interesting than it sounds.

Having just watched Brian Tishy on That Metal Show (Season 10) (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/that-metal-show-(season-10)/msg7873/#msg7873), it was long overdue to spotlight him in the Drum Gods Thread. He is just so damn awesome and creative. Head over to watch his episode where he unveiled the Speed Bag into his Drumming set for the first time. It's awesome!!

This is the first known inclusion of a speed bag by a professional drummer as a rhythm instrument in a major public appearance, and should be noted as an important date in speed bag history

Ethan Ventresca, 5 years old - Led Zeppelin

(http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/j/MSNBC/Components/Photo/_new/tdy-120824-zeppelin-drummer-01.380;380;7;70;0.jpg)

Quote
The viral video of a young (very young) band covering Led Zeppelin's classic "Rock and Roll" is entertaining all the way around, but your attention is immediately drawn to the drummer. Ethan Ventresca, 5, leads the crew of his schoolmates and teachers, hitting every beat nearly perfectly with a crash and slam, never losing his enthusiasm or rhythm.

Ventresca is performing with his band Jester, a group arranged through the School of Rock in Rocky River, Ohio. His dad Mike put the video on YouTube Aug. 19 and it's  been garnering thousands of hits every since. According to Mike, Ethan was just two when it became apparent he was graced with the gift of perfect pitch.

“I was pouring different amounts of water into glasses and dinging them, and he could tell you the exact note,” Mike tells NBC News. “You can hit a glass, hit whatever. If there’s a tone there, he can pick it out.”

After initially learning notes while his dad played guitar, Ethan began matching those sounds to colors, and later became so adept he could hear any sound without a point of reference, and identify it. As a musician, the young rocker gravitated towards the drums, receiving his first official kit from Santa Claus at the age of 3. He’s currently working off set number three, and, along with weekly private lessons at the music school, bangs away two to three hours a day at home.

When he’s not rocking out, he’s listening to the likes of The Beatles, Aerosmith, and Jason Mraz.

“He’s never wanted toys, he only wants musical instruments,” Mike points out. “Whereas most parents are out buying “Star Wars” games, he wants tubas, and mandolins, and banjos.”

Ethan is the youngest player in his group at the School of Rock, but age appears to make little difference in the dynamic. His teacher, Dan Price, describes his abilities as “rare,” noting Ethan was able to master “Rock and Roll” in a few months.

“He’s a sponge, he picks up just about everything I throw at him,” observes Price. “I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a 5-year-old so sharp and focused. He really loves the instrument, and is really dedicated.”

While the famous Zeppelin jam may not be the most complicated of all drum parts, Price describes it as “iconic,” and a “rite of passage” for drummers.

“The intro specifically is difficult,” he adds. “I’ve talked to many musicians my age, and they can never figure out the timing.”

Along with his grade school studies and rock n’ roll lessons, Ethan will be joining the local Cleveland band Shout for a live gig coming up in September, where he’ll perform Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” and Journey’s “Any Way You Want It.”  But despite his rising profile, Mike claims his son shows no sign of superstar egotism just yet.

Mike comments, “My biggest concern has been that he’s young, and I wondered how he would get along with the other kids, but I think he sits there in his own world.”

Oh really... Is that where the bar is set now?






I keed, I keed. It does play into the recent conversations on Electronic Drum forum about why E-Drums are not spotlighted. Much of it has to do with presentation believe it or not. Not how they sound, but how they look. Someone made the comment about getting their money's worth with a massive set on stage. That's what they want to see.

To me, the counter would be, if the drummer had an E-drum, he was screwing over the audience by playing on 'not such a massive set'. I'm trying to walk around the term 'toy set'.  :-\

For an auditorium, Neil's set. But that's because I know he plays everything and it sits well on stage.

I've seen kits in a band, where it was all show. Didn't play them.

I go back to inspiration of Paul McCartney & Wings, where Joe English plays this rather unassuming set... In a huge arena. He played everything with a purpose. It worked.

Phil Collins - I Don't Care Anymore

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLpfbcXTeo8


Thank God for GTA V. I had pretty much forgotten about this kick ass song as I haven't listened to it in years. The song itself is featured as one of the songs on the Rock Station in GTA V and one of the songs I look forward to coming on the air in the game whenever I'm driving around. I could have easily posted this in the Earworms Thread given that the song has been playing in my head for the last couple of weeks. But I decided that it definitely need to go in the Drum Gods thread for obvious reasons. Mac, you absolutely NEED to add this to your Band's set list. When you bring your tour here, I'm going to be shouting.....

...play I Don't Care Anymore throughout your entire set. So, if you don't wanna hear the annoying guy in the front row heckling your sorry ass, I suggest you guys start learning the song now.  ;D This also brings to mind that you should add..........

No drum god here... just funny

ULTIMATE Craig's List Drum Audition Guide - San Diego (http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/muc/4373594412.html)

I felt like this needed to be said. . .you know we're ALL thinking it! And seeing as how someone made one for guitar players, here is a list, not all inclusive mind you, of potentially red flag raising behaviors when auditioning a new drummer from a Craig's List Ad. Some of these obviously apply to guitarists and bassists as well; you know, the REAL musicians in the band the drummer hangs out with. Bear in mind, you ARE getting folks from Craig's List, and let's face it; between the lack of language skills, lack of etiquette, lack of social norms, and lack of awareness of who they are and just how bad they are, and a complete lack of understanding of your ad in the first place, you must prepare yourself for the horror. Sometimes there's even a lack of hygiene, but that's another rant. Oh the humanity. . .the perils that await your band! The perilous perils of peril. Nay, your auditions will be fraught with peril.

Now don't get me wrong, there are lots of gems, and pros, and semi pros, and good people on Craig's List. They're out there. I've met plenty. But just like eBay, you can't believe what you see online until you meet the individual in person and then it all clicks. Badly of course, but clicks. . .and then grinds like a metal rake on a chalkboard. Wait, do we even have chalkboards out there anymore? Or is everyone getting high off the fumes of dry erase markers? Rest assured, if you see this kinda stuff, you can bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, you'll be cruising Craig's List again for yet another candidate. Hey, at least it don't cost you nuthin. See if you recognize any of these scenarios. Don't let it be you!
1. Drummer took the edge off with a beer. . ..drummer brings a beer, or an empty can, or asks for a beer at audition.
2. Drummer brings mom to meet the band during audition
3. Can't stop talking about other bands is currently in, or was in
4. Shows up with sub par equipment and thinks it's "awesome". Plans on gigging out with a no-name brand, or kids' brand of kit. Like trying to scuba dive with sub par equipment. . ..you'll be getting the bends or drown, or be tearing at your dive buddy's octopus for sure. Don't be "tearing at the octopus"..that's the name of the new album from the band.
5. "Train wreck" doesn't begin to describe his timing. Think of your favorite retard movie scene and put drums sticks in his hand. Nice visual dude. Ding fries are done.
6. Has food delivered for himself. Even worse if it's weird food that smells funny. And yes, there's an app to get weird food delivered.
7. Wears the wrong outfit for the genre of music (insert web image of costumed freak here). Think "Something About Mary's" brother Warren in a pink masked avenger outfit. Okay maybe not that bad, but, holy crap, call the fashion police. Or dude, get a makeover. . ..1992 called and wants their wardrobe back.
8. Plays barefoot, or in open toed shoes, or in Crocs (at least wait till you're in the band bro!) No one wants to see that, it's more than gross. I think I heard the word "gay" applied in this scenario, but, let's not label or gender bash and lose focus. No one likes that non PC term anymore, but unfortunately, it's still funny at times. If it's a chick drummer in heels, hire her, she's got skillz.
9. Specifies available times for practice around his happy hour schedule, or whatever other schedule conflict he has. No one cares about YOUR personal issues dude, you make time for the band, or you don't. Even if it's a trip to the VD clinic or some kinda rare colono-streppto-coccysyphillii, just keep that sh&t to yourself and make practice time a priority.
10. Inquires if gas money is a band "fund" for him to make withdrawals and be able to get to gigs. This is even more hilarious when said drummer has a website promoting himself as a pro. Yeah, a pro "scrub"!!!
11. Drummer is just plain weird. Think "awkward dude at parties" that traps you in the corner to talk all night. Even worse when you're the chick at the end of that excruciating experience. And yes, "Excruciating Experience" was the name of my first garage band.
12. Drummer is just plain creepy (Kinko-the-Kid-Loving-Clown kinda creepy)
13. Brings a pet to the audition. Bonus points if it shats on the practice room floor.
14. Says last project was a "misunderstanding" and those guys were a-holes. . .but then says the same of the last 5 bands he was in.
15. Brings an odd pet like a boa constrictor to the audition. If it's some kinda rodent, see comment#8 in regards to non PC labels.
16. Inquires if other band members or assigned roadie is going to handle all his drum set-up and loading. Can you say prima donna? And you thought that only applied to vocalists or lead guitar players.
17. Claims to play all styles but everything he plays kinda sounds like fast metal. When asked to slow down, does for first verse of song, and then right back to a wanna-be 320BPM demon.
18. Plays at only one volume. . .LOUD. You will know this right away, no guesswork required.
19. Arrives late and claims "musician's prerogative". Triple word score if he can use that word in a sentence.
20. The dreaded ADHD type drummer. . .you know, the one that sits behind the kit between songs and keeps practicing their triplets and quads (all in bad timing of course). Think "bucket o fish" ten times fast. Sounds like that. Bucket-o-fish. . ..bucket-o-fish. . .. bucket-o-fish!
21. Complains about ANYTHING. . .see the part about social etiquette? This is a job interview moron, complaining to your potential new band makes you look like, well (insert picture of random animal on drum kit here).
22. Does ANYTHING constantly. . .like bathroom trips, twitching, smoke breaks, bucket-o-fishes, changes sticks, adjusts drums, tunes drums. . ...breathing is still ok to do.
23. Uses someone else's car to transport gear to audition. Hope you all like his "Yoko Ono" girlfriend, or better yet, hope SHE still likes him at every gig you plan to do. God help you if she has a job because you KNOW what phone call is coming. "Umm, dudes, my girlfriend has to work and I need to be picked up on the way to the gig."
24. DV which stands for Domestic Violence. Brings his woman, married or otherwise, to all practices and they constantly don't get along. It's not just awkward, it's bullsh&t. You'll see how much they're invested in each other when the "bros before hoes" phrase gets uttered during one of their spats. Hopefully it happens after the majority of practice is done. Otherwise, stand by to stand by.
25. Thinks paradiddles and flams and triplets are for jazz drummers only.

So if it wasn't mic'd, I don't know how they got such a clean sound. Even a directional mic is going to pick up air movement.

Some were straight on drum apps, some were sound apps, incorporating things like rhythm patterns, keyboards, ethereal sounds, etc. All finger manipulated. I guess I wasn't in a music creating mood with tap tap tap. I'll be if you look in itunes for drum machines, you'll find a ton.

Top 10 Singing Drummers

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBC4SGe9kyQ


Interesting list. But I don't agree with Peter Criss being mentioned only as an 'Honorable Mention'. My bias aside, he should have been in the Top 5. The dude has sung some of the most popular KISS songs ever. And where the f*ck is Kelly Keagy? He doesn't get any mention at all. I do agree with the Top 2 spots though, which I had guessed right before watching the clip.

10 Amazing Drum Stunts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wv86KpJxuQY

It says a lot when Tommy Lee is on the list not once, or twice, but three times. The dude is the standard when it comes to pushing the enveope of Drum theatrics. As for Lars Ulrich inclusion in the list, give me a break. Running from one kit on one side of the stage to another kit on the other side of the stage is not what I would call a 'stunt'.

A little more noise..

Like Daryl's House we have Stewart Copeland doing some interesting Jam Sessions

Neil Peart of Rush
Tool‘s Danny Carey
South Park co-creator Matt Stone
Matt Scannell of Vertical Horizon

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mUjLAWIj7E

Stewart Copeland clearly has some very interesting names in his Rolodex.

As Consequence of Sound notes, the former Police drummer has hosted a series of jam sessions at his studio in recent years, and sometimes, the musicians who end up stopping by are pretty incredible. Take, for instance, the clip above, which finds Copeland working with a group that includes Neil Peart of Rush, Tool‘s Danny Carey, South Park co-creator Matt Stone and Matt Scannell of Vertical Horizon.

The resulting jam, titled “A Little More Noise,” finds Copeland and Scannell playing guitar while Peart and Carey play drums and Stone adds some percussion. Through the magic of video editing, you can also see the players who came in later to add a few layers to the song.

“Some new drums arrived so Peart and Carey came over to lay heavy hands upon them,” explains Copeland on the video’s YouTube page. “Scannell and I banged out any old riffs while Stone chimed the gongs. Couple days later four more drummers dropped by and took up the horns. The piano was an afterthought.”

It’s all part of a tradition that has found everyone from Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins to Snoop Dogg stopping by Copeland’s studio — and while the roster of guests can be impressive, it’s all pretty low-key as far as he’s concerned.

“I have some buddies come over, and we jam,” Copeland told Rolling Stone in 2012. “We jam high, we jam low, we have a wonderful time, we have a lot of laughs, they leave. And then the next morning, I come in and see what I’ve got. And then I cut up these jams and add overdubs, and I turn these jams into tracks.”

Meh....

Actually there's been brief discussions on the drum blogs about youtube video's, drum covers and such. It went both ways pro and con for those kinds of video's. Then people while not exactly poo pooing the go-pro thing, it wasn't supported.
