Every Monday we bring you a pic of a colossal or unique drum kit from around the Internet!
Over the years, Neil’s kit has grown into a circular nirvana or drums, cymbals, electronic pads, and other toys!
The drum set of W.S. “Fluke” Holland, Johnny Cash’s drummer of 20 years, is on display at the new “Legends of Sun Records” exhibit in Memphis, TN. This is the kit heard on “I Walk the Line,” Folsom Prison Blues,” and many others.
At Sun Records, it wasn’t something that we thought would make history… It just happened. We never thought anyone would even know about it after a couple years.
This sounds avant-garde today! Imagine how it must have been received when it premiered in 1933!
We know that Mike Johnston is a great teacher, especially online! His site, mikeslessons.com, sees thousands of students a day. If you ever wanted to get some tips, hints, and learn how he does what he does, now is your chance. Through creativelive.com, you can enroll in his 16-part course on becoming a music teacher.
Troy unpacks what it really means to play “authentically” on today’s show. In the news, we discuss Tama’s new Silverstar drums, why a band in NJ did to get busted by the cops, AC/DC’s new record, the last mention of the Dave Lombardo saga, and what’s next for Radiohead.
Elvin would’ve turned 87 this week. He’s one of my (Dave’s) biggest influences as a player, performer, and band leader.
Tama has announced the new Limited Edition Silverstar drum set that includes a rock-ready 26″ kick drum! Available in in Sky Blue Sparkle and Brushed Charcoal. Sizes are a 26″ kick, and 13″, 16″ and 18″ toms. This kick is definitely Bonham approved!
Let’s hear it for the Paiste Rudes! YYEAH!
The award winning marching band for Brick Memorial High School in Brick Township, NJ will have to find another place to practice after sour neighbors (who remained anonymous… cowards) called the cops for their rehearsals being too loud. The proposed solution from the school: make them practice on an unlit baseball field. *slow clap* Stellar work there mensas.
It seems if you didn’t want to hear music, then how about don’t live next to a High School with a marching band!
