  1. Re: What is your individual bio on your band web/fb page?

    Short and sweet:

    Veni
    Vidi
    Vici

    There was no FB or Twitter, or internet (thank the powers that be) to put your resume up, so you were either good and built a reputation and got phone calls,...

    Re: National Drumming Day

    Re: Best Sounding Albums/CDs

    We did it for years. Great song!! The sad part was that so few people had heard of Saga back then that they thought that we wrote the song, but it always went over really well.

    Re: Getting there

    I think the ability to tune a given drum (12x8, 13x9, 14x10) comes rather quickly. The problem, to me, is getting a nice balance between up tom and floor tom, and then on to the BD.

    The consolation is that you are dealing with neither corn cobs nor outhouses with no lights. Being that some people can't find their butts with both hands, a map, and a flashlight, it could lead to...

    Life will never be "normal" again. All will deal with some form of PTSD to varying degrees for the rest of their lives.
