I love music.. lots and lots of it.. many different styles and varieties from really old classical stuff to some of the more up-to-date and experimental stuff, even the binaural stuff,..

But my real passion is drums.

I love the rhythm of them, the hard banging passion and raw energy that goes into playing them. No other instrument, imo, makes you feel your roots, your tribal, ancestral, centre of the womb type roots..

I was in Africa once and heard the sound of drums rolling across from wherever they were.. there was a thunderstorm off the coast, it was night time.. What a feeling..
They are the closest we can get to the rhythm of life.

I was in a band once.. and yes I played drums. But that's neither here nor there.

Was just checking out some tracks on youtube and found a piece I never knew existed and just had to share.
Phil Collins... plus two;


So, let's see what you can come up with.. but, it has to be drum related.
a little battle of the drums.. I'm sure some of you might dig up one guy in particular.. there's a clue there,
very, very slight clue...

Just a bit of fun... am interested to see what you can reveal..

I love drums as well.
My first instrument is guitar but I love my drums.
Guitar is love to me and drums are sex to me.
I LOVE this video.

I love his style and it's down to him that I pushed myself to play open handed
what a difference it makes!

Dan Gluszak - saw him with Envy On The Coast a few years back and he killed it!



Pulling out the big guns next

Here's a talented young lady that might keep you up all night..



She's done a lot of vids like this.. so it might take you all night to watch them all..
Only thing is, she seems to 'play safe'..

I think she's got more potential so might have to check out some more of her stuff..

He's got so much energy! Almost Keith Moon-esque drumming


Have you seen the video of Tony Royster Jr as a kid (age 12)?
