I play on a way older Tama Swingstar than that... From the looks of it; consider yourself lucky! There ain't no problems with your kit, the cymbals on the other hand. I have a friend who plays the same kit (same finish and everything) with stock Tama hi-hats and Paiste Signature ride/crash/splash, he actually likes his hi-hats o.O (he's going to replace them though).

I grajeeated in 86 :oops: I should know that song! Ha ha ha! I was never into thrash, speed or death metal stuff. Well except for Wrath Child. One of my old bands use to play with them and did the same club circuit in the DC/Baltimore/Northern Virgina area. I was friends with Shannon back in the day. Man, I would just watch in complete awe as that guy would blaze on a kit. He was the shit then. Guess he still is...I ran into him when they came through town last year. Sorry....OT

And Kyle....If you ARE having trouble adjusting your kit, just ask for a little help bro. There is no shame in that.



I used to play with Wrathchild back in the day....Steve you do realize that that was Shannon Larkin behind the drums right? Those guys were long time friends since highschool for me, we used to open shows for them all the time at places like Jaxx and the Cave in DC and Virginia. As a matter of fact I ended up moving into their rehersal studio after they left. looks like we've been chasing each other around for a while,LOL>

^^^^ Small world Kris :)

I bet our paths have crossed...buddy were talkin our spent youth - Haha! I use to sneak into a club to see WC at a place called the Mountain View when I was underage. Shannon a big inspiration to me at that time. Then over the years we became friends being in the same circuit. They were much heavier than us. They were the BIG dogs and we were mere pups :) Cool thing though is I still have copies of Mid Atlantic Music Monthly magazine where I received 3rd or honorable mentions in several categories of their yearly awards for a few years. Shannon or Jimmy C (Kix) always swept 1st place. I always felt honored to be mentioned with guys I respected so much.

Wow...time warp! Those were some crazy days back then and what a scene at that time! When my band back then split up, I took a different path and never looked back. Life was very fast then. I lost some friends wayyy toooo young, a band mate included, and that had an impact on me. I think if I hadn't made a change I may not be here today. It's easy to get caught up on that lifestyle. I'm sure you know what I'm sayin. Anywayyyyy...geez, didn't mean to get all deep just then :)

But yeah, it was really cool when Godsmack came thru town last year. By dumb luck they had a day off before the next nights show and Sully and some crew happened into the bar my band was playing. Got to chattin it up and drinkin and when I told him I was an old friend of Shannons he hooked us up with backstage passed for the next night. Went and parties it up a bit with gang and got the "nickle tour" ore show. It was like my HS reunion back stage. It was great. Sadly, I didn't get to see Shannon play cause I had a show that night. Fun times!!!

I bet we shed splinters on a lot of the same stages buddy! Hammerjacks, the Bayou, Zaxx (I think same as Jaxx?), Maxs on Broadway and 9:30 club come to mind. Man, there were sooooo many places to play back then. Who was your band then? Mine was NV.

I complain about my gear sometimes too Kyle. But, the kit is not what makes you good, it's the love and dedication. I'm posting a video of a homeless guy playing on BUCKETS and sounds like a pro. He'd love to have your drums, he's got a shoe holding one of his buckets in place. It's not about what you play. Not bashing you at all, your a good kid, but it's easy to forget just what we do have sometimes.

That is cool man , yeah we definately must have crossed paths. Iback in those days ....of ccourse things being as heavy as they were, and never to be out done,LOL, I was with a band called Sadistic. That is how we ended up sharing alot of Wrathchild bills. Yeah, Zaxx became jaxx after an owner ship change. Hammerjacks was my home away from home along with the Rage. As a matter of fact i met my wife at a Dream theater show at Hammerjacks. Yeah, Max's was an old haunt to along with ....man what was the name of that place in Georgetown...oh well i'll probably wake out of a dead sleep when I remember it.
I have followed Shannons carreer since then , he was such a masterful monster player...actaully think he was just this wildly possesed scrawnny little demon, but man was he a bad ass! I am so glad he caught the break....it was well deserved. I hate that he plays second chair to Sully. sully's talented and all, don't get me wrong, but stick to stick with Larkin....never.
Yeah, those were definately heavier days. The New titans on the block tour, Nuclear Assault, Sacred Reich,Prong, God Flesh,DRI,Testament to name a few.....yeah I had my fun opening for the biggies in the day on the heavy scene.

Kyle, you were saying about how you can play 'raining blood' on your friends kit better t han your own. What is his kit? is it much better than yours? Perhaps youve just got used to playing his kit more than your own?

Maybe you could take a picture of his kit and make your own setup identical to his?
