    More cowbell!

    And, he'll have to get his own crew to move his kit. Not me.

    Aerobic drumming?

    But can he stay in the pocket?
    Can he groove?

    Trying to imagine a bandmate trying to give him a visual cue...

    He doesn't seem too bad in the video course he's sololng, 340 pieces there, later he had 800+ and wants 1000. He's in the Guiness book of records.

    He's got three roadies, takes them 15 hours to set up, has his own 18 wheeler, preaching must be a lucrative trade,

  10. You joke, but the pastor at my church said he was surprised we didn’t pull out the cowbell for our last worship song this morning. (I was playing drums.) I don’t think he knew I actually had one on the kit. So of course I played it generously in the post-service number...

    That's cool and all, but if I had to choose between them I'd rather hire this kid with this kit.

  13. I understand this is for a Guinness world record, but still...Meh.

    That's more like it. I'm way more impressed by drummers killing it on a small kit than by Terry Bozzio / Neil Peart and their 360 degrees drum sets. They're both obviously very good at what they do, but it doesn't speak to me that much.

    My favorites these days are Mark Guiliana and Nate Smith:

    Most of the stuff we’ve learned from are what was laid down by the studio cats. We’re inspired by the Entwistle’s and Jaco’s but if you’re playing covers, the studio guys making the hits are usually the best guide to use.

    Holy crap! What was he doing with his kick drum! I can't figure out how he did that. It sounded like a double pedal, and he had one, but I didn't see him use it in the video. Whatever. His skill level is whupping my sorry attempt at being a drummer.

    ok, but can he get out of the car when the bass player locks his keys in it?

    He has two pedals, L and R both beating the kick drum via one of those linkage thingies. Look at the overhead shots from 2:00 in and you can see the L kick pedal right next to the hat pedal. A few times you can see him swapping his left foot between the Kick and Hat pedals.

    Yeah the dude's double-kick pedal technique is pretty damn tight.
