    Re: Clive Burr

    When I was younger, Clive Burr could do no wrong, I loved his drumming. As I got older and wiser, I realized Nikko is a better drummer. Nikko is also a gentleman and such a nice guy. That said, I...

    I have a few questions.
    1) did Bobby use a double bass when recording that album?
    2) how did he get his rack toms...

  7. Re: Gary Mallabar question ( Steve Miller Band )

    Gotta love Gary Mallabar.

    I also think Bonham was influenced by Joe Morello. Look at Joe Morello’s solo with his hands, i think thats where Bonham got that from.
  9. Gary Mallabar question ( Steve Miller Band )

    I know Gary used a cracked cymbol on “ rock n me” from book of dreams. Did he use that same cracked cymbol fly like an eagle and take the money and run?

    Re: Anyone have a “ go to “ lick ?

    Thats interesting. I think its great to always have 2 or 3 “ go to beats” that sound cool but can easily be played on any drum kit.
    Many times when we play someone elses kit it can be very awkward...

    Re: 24” bass drum for small kid ?

    A 24” doesnt make a difference when you factor in his height? In other words, its not harder to reach the racks on a 24 opposed to a 22?

    24” bass drum for small kid ?

    My nephew is about 5-6” tall and wants a 24” bass drum. Dumb question, is he too short for a 24 inch when you factor in the height of the rack toms? I thought i read that on one of the forums.
