ABOUT

Am looking for a good rock band to start or join. I've been playing drums for a few decades now and am well versed in the art of learning new music. As with most musicians, my practice schedule consists of basically prog rock and the more difficult types of music so I can stay in shape. But, of course, we are stuck playing the "top 40" types of music at gigs, and I am OK with that. I know a lot of you are not keen on the idea of migrating to the drummers house, but this is the literal truth in this case. I have way too much equipment to be toting around for practices. More than enough for an entire band. Huge Rush fan, so I've kind of modeled my kit after Neal Peart, sort of. I am not a studio drummer, per say, but I do a lot of recording, so my tracking skills are up to snuff. Here's a link to an old video (1992) of Warpigs at a backyard party: s://.thegearpage/board/index.php?threads/i-found-a-25-year-old-backyard-party-video-of-warpigs.1767103/
Please drop me a line if you're interested! Thank you!
P.S. I'm not a paying member, so please leave contact info.

I record through (1) Focusrite Clarett Octopre and (2) Focusrite Clarett 8PreX interfaces with 24 channels into pro tools 11. I use a total of 14 mics on my kit, plus spares. It's all mounted to a nice Gibralter circular rack (see photos).
