  4. I’ve had a couple of drummers tell me Ringo isn’t a great drummer, but I’ve also heard that about Bill Ward.

    Bob Dylan? Only 'Bob' recognized only by his first name. :)

    Yeah, I’ve heard that too.
    But Ringo has had people always wanting to play music with him for what? Nearly 60 years. I’d be pleased to be that ordinary.

    A bit sad to hear today that Greedy Smith from Mental As Anything has died. Heart attack while driving, 63yo, and no previous heart issues.

    I don’t expect you guys know them but this is their biggest hit


    But I prefer their earlier stuff like ‘the nips are getting bigger’.
     
  10. I vaguely remember them being popular, but I would be hard pressed to name a song. I think they weren't my type of music and consequently never made a lasting impression. I think it was part of the big fascination with Australia driven by Crocodile Dundee. It included Crowded House, Foster's Lager, Midnight Oil, The Wiggles, AC/DC, Nicole Kidman and others. It probably came to a screeching halt when Australia sent over Yahoo Serious and that big guy that just says "Oi" thinking that North Americans would accept any Australian crap.:D;)

    I vaguely remember the band but could not have told you any song titles. Regardless, 63 seems young to pass.
     
  12. Ringo has a very unique style and sounds like no other drummer - part of that is due to Ringo being a left-handed drummer playing on a right-handed drum kit. Also he's RINGO. ;)

    and Keith Moon..
     
  14. But it simulates a $5k cable and that makes ALL the difference. :smug:

  15. I never realized Ringo was left handed. I have also never thought about drum kits being organized "backwards" to accommodate left handed drummers. But as I think about it, it seems like drums would be less left/right handed than a guitar. More like a piano - comes in one configuration only.

    My brother is left handed and I can remember many times my dad telling him that it is a right handed world, get used to it.

  16. That's what I need! A $5k cable! Then I will play better. Much easier and than practicing and/or admitting that I am terrible. It's the gear.
     
  17. Looks like it would be comfortable to play on those long, seated sessions. . . . :D
     
  18. Play with a $10k cable and you'll be twice as good! :bassist:

  19. I'm sure that there are diminishing returns. Maybe I need to do some cable experiments. No that sounds as tedious as practicing. I'll just accept a linear relationship.
