    I play drums for the Cherry Poppin' Daddies!
  1. Thank you everyone! First show is approaching fast and my nerves are growing but I'm excited to be out there playing!
  2. Thanks everyone! To be honest, I only knew about 2 or 3 of their songs before starting to learn the audition material I've already started to insert some Neil style fills in certain places (I just can't help myself) The thing I failed to realize about the band is just how many different styles and genres they incorporate. I've had to learn a lot of new little grooves and go way outside my comfort zone, which is quite satisfying!
  3. I can honestly say I've never eaten crawfish, but I love seafood, so this gig has me pretty excited lol. And thank you everyone! I'm really excited!
  4. Hey all, I'm super stoked to be able to officially say that I'm now the drummer for the Cherry Poppin' Daddies! I know they are a band NOTHING like Rush, but I was so excited I had to post somewhere lol. I was in a pretty serious prog band up until about 2011, and then I fell out of drumming. I actually just started playing a few months ago, just in time to prepare for the drum audition for the band, and miraculously, they picked me! The funny thing is that I think I owe it to Neil and Rush for keeping my chops up while not actually playing drums. Rush has basically been the only band I've listened since I quit playing :Neil: :Neil: :Neil: So yeah, super happy to be playing drums again, and even happier to have a spot with a decently known band!
  5. Only 5 I'm glad one of them was R40 though! My heart goes out to all of you overseas folks that didn't get to see that tour
  6. Wow! Thanks guy! :) Episode three is in the works and SHOULD be up Tuesday! Share it with your friends and family! My goal is to get 100 subscribers before Episode 5 comes out!
  7. Awesome, thanks! Also, episode two is now up!!!
  8. 33 views, no feedback? lol did I post this in the completely wrong place? Pretty sure this is my first post outside of the main rush board haha.
  9. Wasn't quite sure where to put this, hope it's okay here. So a few months ago my roommates and myself thought it would be fun to make a 40's style radio drama/comedy with all of our own sound effects and the like. Around the same time, I'd also made up this ridiculous caricature of one of my coworkers (he was/is fine with it and loves it), so we decided to make a radio drama around this character. After we had made an episode, we got sidetracked with other things and never continued. However, friends and family kept pushing us to put it online and start making sequels, so we did! Presenting, The Ivan Sours Mystery Hours We'd love some likes, subcribers, and shares if you like it! Thanks :)
  10. This might be the best live release of Tom Sawyer...the mix is perfect, the camerawork is acceptable, no mistakes from the boys, and the tempo is even up a bit! Love it.
  11. Ged and Neil are definitely top notch, probably top 3 for each of them (ROCK category of course). Alex is so much harder to place. Sheer speed and playing wise? He's nowhere near the top. However in terms of actual musicianship he is number 1, edging out even David Gilmour. No one else has the mental capacity and technique to do what Alex does. He is the smartest guitarist to have ever played. Things like the guitar solo in Red Sector A are so far ahead of anyone else it's ridiculous. Also I'd go and say that no one else has better control and mastery over their tone.
