This is a drumming and music discussion facebook page. Not a fan page. I do a lot of rambling and video posting and expect the same from my friends. So come and talk with us!

I am a cancer survivor and am not the young healthy guy I used to be. But I am improving slowly but surely. Always feel free to visit this site for updates if interested.


Drum Gear business: All gear in this video is the same as listed on my homepage except the 2 crash cymbals and the omission of the 14" floor tom (only 16" floor tom here). All cymbals here are Zildjian K's. Both the crash cymbals are Zildjian K Dark Customs. The crash on my left is 17" and the crash above my ride cymbal is an 18". So I have taken down the 20" K dark custom ride as a crash for now. The 21" Special Dark Custom Dry Ride and K Sweet hats are the same.
Please visit my home page to see a full list of all of my gear/equipment.
All of my covers with multiple angles are filmed in ONE TAKE with multiple cameras filming at the same time. No matter how many angles end up in the video, all audio comes from one overhead large diaphragm condenser mic. The only thing I do to edit the audio is to turn up the volume and add the covered song. I do NO cutting, moving or changing any notes as I feel this is highly unethical. If we are doing covers, we should be able to do the full thing all in one sitting. So you get a full performance with mistakes and all. For better or worse. And there are plenty of mistakes in this cover. =(

As always, I LOVE FEEDBACK! OF ANY KIND! =D But preferably comments. What made you stop by this cover? The song? The drumming? The ugly guy playing the drums? =/ Are you trying to figure this song out yourself? Are you a guitar player who thought it would be cool to see what it looked like to play the drums on this song? What do you like about the song? The guitars? Bass? Vocals? Drums? Anything! I want to hear anything and everything you would be willing to share. I read all comments and respond to just about every one of them as soon as I can. I love dialogue about the things that I'm passionate about (music and drums). So let me have it if you're willing to give it. (I talk too much don't I...) OH! And feel free to leave requests below. I can't guarantee I'll get to it, but if I love the song too, then chances are high I will. Thank you for visiting and reading all this!!
