DRUMMERS OF THE WORLD

Do you have any specific questions for touring drummers that you would like to ask them (other than the usual gear rundowns)? 

I’m in the build stage of a drum-based website that focuses on interviews, gear rundowns, and possibly play-through videos. I’ve got a slew of questions in my arsenal that I think people want to hear about, but do you ever find yourself wishing you knew other basic things about your favorite drummers?

Leave comments below or reblog this with a reply. I’m looking to make this website as well-rounded as possible and I want to know what YOU want to hear your favorite drummers talk about.

" I’m 87 years old…I only eat so I can smoke and stay alive.. The only fear I have is how long consciousness is gonna hang on after my body goes. I just hope there’s nothing. Like there was before I was born. I’m not really into religion, they’re all macrocosms of the ego. When man began to think he was a separate person with a separate soul, it created a violent situation.
The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.
Anybody else you’ve interviewed bring these things up? Hang on, I gotta take this call….. Hey, brother. That’s great, man. Yeah, I’m being interviewed… We’re talking about nothing. I’ve got him well-steeped in nothing right now. He’s stopped asking questions.”

So I’ve never recorded myself playing guitar or singing or anything but I really love this song and I was able to figure out on guitar so here it is.

Anonymous asked: who do you usually have photograph your shows when you tour/do you have a touring photographer/if not are you looking for one?

mylegsgavein:

We don’t have a personal photographer if that’s what you’re asking. We’ve had photo homies come on tour with us, that’s always a blast. We do love when people take it upon themselves and document our live shows and such. It’s a lot of work, time and money to learn and practice that art and photographers are very under appreciated. So, come to a gig and take as many pictures as you desire, you’re a part of this as much as we are.

Fuck yeah.
