tombackus Posted June 30, 2009 Report Share Posted June 30, 2009 Longtime drummer/sound engineer here. Been playing since I was 4 yrs old. Marched in drum corps and aged out in the Bridgemen line back in '82. Went to Berklee for drums, also played in a punk band back in the early 80's that toured as the opener for The Ramones, The Go-Go's, Johnny Thunders, Joan Jett, and opened for U2 when they first went on tour here. Good times for sure. I still play and produce when I get the call for it, still follow drum corps too. Since I grew up in Rochester, NY, I had the pleasure of working with Steve Gadd a number of times when I was engineering in the studio. Just standing next to the kit while he is playing is unbelievable. He taught me some things, and we still keep in touch. Seems that most drummers I know are technically savvy, have perfect pitch, can write great music, and play many different instruments.
