    Re: Whats the loudest concert you've been to?

    Ha Ha! Sat in the front row for a Todd show at the McMorran Arena. It actually hurt. The tickets were a gift. At least I didn't have to pay to lose part of my hearing!

    Re: Stick tape - what kind?

    I have been dropping sticks lately. Something to do with the colder temps. I started using Mr. Zogs Sex Wax. Works like a charm. That piece I got looks like darn near a lifetime supply!

    Re: Cymbal Cleaning and Polishing

    Barkeeper's Friend works quite well. I cleaned up several 40+ year old badly neglected cymbals with the stuff and they turned out great.

    Customer Service-Alive and Well!

    Last week, my wife asked what she could get me for my birthday. I said "a DW mag throw-off and a 3 position butt plate"

    Re: Eddie and the Cruisers movies

    Excellent movies. Very entertaining, with a heavy dose of realism. Highly recommended. Another great "band" movie is "The Commitments". A must see. Great soundtrack.

    Re: Jazz/Funk

    Try listening to The Meters. Really tasty funk with some jazz influences. Good stuff. A real drummer's playground.

    Why else, for the chicks! Seriously, I've probably been married longer than most of the drummers here have been alive. Playing drums is actually more fun now than ever. I want to keep playing drums...
