    Rest in Peace Mrs Thatcher.

    Sad to hear of the death of Margaret Thatcher. Best Prime Minister since Churchill. We will not see her like again. A proper PM who cared for the country, unlike today's light weights.

    The Art of the Drummer, although a kit book, has a lot of snare basics that may be worth a look. When I was taught the rudiments, there was around 20 of us sitting at a long wooden table. A Drummer...

    A mate of mine is helping out a band in the 4th section. I asked him how it's going and his reply made me laugh. "With a bit of luck, and not too many cock ups, we might scrape into last place." :)

    We all like different things, is the best answer I can give. I personally thought it was just a noise. It could have been a learner band for all I could tell from it. I want a Championship section...

    Just watched Wingates on YouTube. Longest 'warm up' I've ever heard! Had the advantage of being able to turn it off by the time the shaker guy had done his lap of honour.

    I stopped playing for over 10 years. Then when I moved to the countryside, my wife kept on at me to find a band. I did eventually do so, and played with them for 7 years on solo horn.
