My first post here


Hi,

Old geezer here, playing for 40 years. Still doing about 130 gigs a year, playing music from the 50's and 60's as well as some standards. I use Yamaha drums. My main kit is the Absolute series using maple, birch and beech, I also use an older Yamaha Club Custom kit for smaller venues, they are birch / mahogany. I still practice and in the past year I have experienced a technical growth to my playing. I have been getting back to practicing rudiments, watching instructional DVDs by Dave Weckl and Pat Petrillo. I also try to attend drum clinics when ever I can. I have performed with Roy Orbison, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Johnny Rivers, The Rascals, B.J. Thomas, The Grass Roots, The Beach Boys to name a few. Love talking drums and always open to learning new things.

Cool Re: My first post here


Hi 2B sticks,

Congrets man, after all those years still putting up that amount of gigs!!
It's probably your experience with B.J. Thomas " Hooked On A Feeling" that provided you with the vigor to keep performing!!! LOL

Anyhow, good on you Mate, as we say Down Under!

Cheers,

Harry
