as I understand, you are a drummer.
I would like to converse with you regarding your drumming.

ERK. that sounds sarcastic and plastic. Not my intent.

Seriously man, in a band? Used to be? Influences?


I like drummers.

Yes. Reverse Reality was a band I was in from 2000 to 2002. Was burned out for a while after that and took a 1 year break. Returned to the local scene and joined a project called Sinn which evolved into Dead Star Factory. This short lived as I was recruited to join the fast rising in popularity band American Sugar Bitch. I stayed with ASB for a couple of years and were nearly signed to Columbia/Sony. This deal fell thru the cracks. Once again burned out I took a break. A year later I emerged in local scene again with a band called Juliet's Vice. JV recorded a bunch of demos and 1 proper self financed full length CD and played a shit ton of shows on the east coast focusing on NYC. It was during this time that popular NYC female rock singer, reality TV star and model Natasha Komis was making changes to the rock band she had put together and asked me to join. I did and spent a few months in both bands until leaving JV to focus on her project 100%. We played many great great gigs in NYC including Inked Magazines Christmas bash. Long story short Natasha had lined up some great things with managers, lawyers etc... But as luck would have it she had some old pending shitty contracts that were hindering progress. We stuck it for 4 years but by then the buzz surrounding her died down. I then took another break and havnt been active in 3 years.

Influences? I have so many for many different reasons. It's hard to make a list.

I'll come back later and list some more music and list some favorite players.

Coevad thanks for the Hunter quote. It goes perfectly with what I tried to explain to maps in the zappadan thread.

I think maps and jay could form a band. They could call it Ratshit Icecream.

I do agree with this but Carmine was a very early influence on me and is in my opinion the greatest. I AM ALLOWED TO SAY THAT. You are 13, so shut up.



wakawazooinregalia is the new Isaac.

I do enjoy some of these drummers as well.
But... I was shocked to see Peter Criss on there. Not because I disagree,
but I run into a lot of folks who badmouth his abilities.

Anyone that bad mouths Peter's drumming is a moron who doesn't know shit about style. Peter Criss had great style of drumming. He was no chops monster of course but his playing was based on his influences which were Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich and you can hear it in his playing

I've always preferred Peter Criss's drumming to any other Kiss drummer. I suppose the rest were technically better.

I've always found Kiss's music boring. Back in the 70s when kids were running around pretending that they were breathing fire, it was kinda funny. Other than that, my wife likes the band, so I have a Kiss Army Shirt. Friends in school over the years have tried to convince me that they don't suck, but they really do. I had a friend offer to roadie for some Kiss convention, he likes em so much. I still can't really say why. AF's guitar work is competent, but if it is ever great, I've never heard that song. My nephew dragged me to an AF solo show several years ago. The beer was good, so I didn't hate it. But as for the other musicians, they haven't really added much to music in general, imo. They have a couple songs that aren't terrible, most are boring though. The costumes are hilarious, in a good way, I suppose, fucking hilarious.

Are you into Megadeth at all? What do you feel about some of their drummers from the past like Gar Samuelson, Nick Menza and Jimmy DeGrasso.
Of course another important one was a little known guy called Vinnie Colaiuta who provided drums on 2004's The System Has Failed.

In my opinion, that's a fucking good list. Glad to see Brian Downey on there.


@ NP
Gar Samuelson was amazing, but heroin stripped his talent very quickly. Nick was great, but I personally like Jimmy better.
