Talking back in the saddle


Hello drummers, Sure wish this was available when I was starting to play 41 years ago!!! I quit playing about 8 years ago due to a sickening feeling everytime I played with members who couldn't see anything except themselves playing..Made me want to vomit! But my wife (whom had never seen me in a band before) bought me a set of Gretsch drums for my birthday and told me to get back in the saddle... What a great woman. I love playing again and even if I'm 54 years I can still rock on with a dbl kick and play all the stuff that's going on now and in the past.. Man is it fun. I also collect albums (for fun). I play them once to record then shelve them for safety of being scratched. Being I'm new here I know I'll check back and read other threads from all of you. Keep on drummin!!!!SC from Minnesota

Y-E-E-E-H-A-A-H!!! Hang onto that saddle dude!!


Playing music is one hell of a ride. I'm 67 & am doing about the same thing you are. I don't EVER want to get off this horse. Glad to have you with us. Please -tell us some of your war stories on "Musician Stories" under the "Drummers" thread. GRETSCH drums are awesome. I always wanted some, never got to do it. Shoot! Now I'm all envious. Any way, Welcome aboard a great drummers site. Nice to have you here.

Keep kickin'


Just keep sniffin' around & kickin' at the doors. That's what I do. I'm getting so old, I think maybe the younger bands don't want a fossil on the stage. Maybe they're afraid I'll have a heart attack & fall over on the drums. I'm in better shape than most of them. I just look ancient.
I hope you link up with some one soon. It's not fun sitting around playing to cd's. forever.
At any rate --It's very nice to have you & your input in this group. You are appreciated.

Thanks, I think I need to kick more doors and sniff a little harder. Or maybe I'm "gettin perticuler", anyway, I can't wait to play with somebody soon. It has always been easier playing live than with tracks. But I still play...

Man. I'm starting to feel really young around here.

Nice to meet you friend. I know what you mean about self centered musicians. It's a constant uphill battle.

NEVER pick on really, realy OLD people


Skinslapper--Go to your room & stick your nose against the wall. Dang young
whippersnapper.

Now then ---Where was I --I forgot again--Oh-Maybe?---no?--Oh, I remember-

Stevenc--Sorry it took me so long to hobble over here sonny. It sounds like we're in the same boat. If I'm on the other oar, that would explain why we're just going in circles. I'll just jump overboard & swim the 5 miles to shore- (in a hurricane) so that you can make some progress. Meanwhile if I make it to shore without drowning (did I mention the hurricane??), that might shut up that young kid, Skinsluffer or whatever his name is ---can't remember now. Sure hope I survive.

OLD??? We don't need no stinkin' old --


Gimmeabeating--You don't have to be old. You can be a fair young maiden if that's what you want. IS that what you want to be??? heh, heh
Skin sniffer or whatever was inferring that I was old. HOW WUDE ! I can't imagine where he got such an idea. Anyway all of us OLD guys are going to have a meeting and take over the world next Tuesday.---if we can remember where the meeting hall was..
