General Board / Uptown Funk drum cover/drum remix

Hey guys,

I've been jamming heaps on Uptown Funk lately so I decided to have a go at a drum cover/remix of it. This was one of the more fun ones to come up with parts for and it's made me really keen to move more into the funk realm at some stage with some more covers.

Hope you guys dig it!

Music, Musicians & Musicianship / Best Seat in the House by Jerry Shirley
« Last post by Bart Elliott on February 04, 2015, 08:05 PM »
In 2011, Humble Pie drummer, Jerry Shirley, released his personal memoir ā€” Best Seat in the House: Drumming in the '70s with Marriott, Frampton, and Humble Pie ā€” told from the drum throne and backstage hallways during the emerging days of the Seventies classic rock era.

Here is a hard rock memoir essentially an authorized bio on the endearing British rock band Humble Pie as told from the drum throne and backstage hallways during the emerging days of the Seventies classic rock era. In 1969, Jerry Shirley was chosen to drum in a new band led by Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton. He had just turned 17. Along with bassist Greg Ridley, and manager Dee Anthony, the Pie started a 6-year journey that stormed the US and defined Arena Rock bigger sound, bigger contracts, and bigger parties. Along the way Jerry meets with future legends that make for a star-studded bio and rare glimpse into the rock music industry. Written in his own voice and with a wicked musician sense of humor, Jerry details the vibrant scene that created the explosive sound of heavy rock. He explains how sessions were conducted by iconic engineers like Glyn Johns and Eddie Kramer, describes his session work with Syd Barrett and George Harrison and tells amusing tales like drum shopping with the Who's Keith Moon. What was it like to perform a sold-out show at Shea Stadium, play for 250,000 in Hyde Park, charter a private jet for tour, record the trend-setting live record at the Fillmore East (that spawned the FM radio staple "I Don't Need No Doctor"), get hyped for the stage by Dee Anthony, and deal with the drugs and excesses of this inhibitive era of rock? This book definitely answers those question as well as "What was it like to meet, play, record, tour, party, and fight with cult hero Steve Marriott?" No other book can cover it like this.
General Board / Sabian buys Crescent Cymbals
« Last post by Bart Elliott on February 02, 2015, 02:25 AM »
You may remember that back in January 2014, Drummer Cafe broke the news that Sabian and Crescent Cymbals were forging an alliance. After much frustration with cymbal makers in Turkey, Crescent (aka Cymbal Masters) chose to have their cymbals made in North America, and joined forces with Sabian to meet their demand.


Now, one year later, during the 2015 NAMM Show, it was announced that SABIAN, LTD is actually BUYING Crescent Cymbals. As of right now, Sabian plans to keep the brand alive as a premium series.

Hey all, my name is EJ Luna and i am a drummer from Atlantic City NJ. I primarily do youtube drum videos by putting drums on movie, games, and soundtrack theme songs that have little to no drums on it. All professional recordings. I have been playing drums for 13+ years. Take a moment to review my work. Thanks in advance! http://youtu.be/UUAT8zSmMhM?list=PLwn73uCp_HtIZ_02HbS3PP7GNPu0aeFoH
Hey guys,

I'm a drummer from Sydney and I've been having a lot of fun smashing out covers of my favourite tracks out in secluded and nature-inspired locations like ocean cliffs and bushy clearings. If you're interested, check out the latest cover I just released of a Being As An Ocean track. I seriously appreciate any feedback or comments. Cheers guys!

Actually, I remember reading a book in my youth that consisted of interviews of various members of the orchestra, from the 1970sā€”I want to say it was the Boston Symphony in particular, though I could be wrong. Anyway. The percussionist interviewed shared how sometimes he didn't use "the wooden sticks", such as the beginning of Bolero, where he began with English pennies and progressed to his wife's knitting needles before going to sticks.  Not sure if this is still done.
