…ok i just got back last night from Birmingham England and the sessions with Ranking Roger and Ranking Jr. were “off the hook” great!!! I was there for a week and experienced some great moments. on the first day, Roger and I went to Handsworth and had ackee and saltfish at his favorite jamaican restaurant and that night we went out and saw a reggae band at one club and some punk bands at another spot in downtown Birmingham.
the next night i rode with him and ranking Jr. down to Coventry where they were performing live as “The Beat”.… » Read full post

“20 minute theory” on drums and fitness
….ok so here is my second installment of drum advice and then no more blabbin from me……I’ve given several different renditions of the same advice over the years, and I’ve decided that it all comes down to one simple concept.
I call it the “20 Minute” theory. I use it for drums and exercise, and it’s TOTALLY worked for me over the years. Here’s how it works.
step 1: buy a timer…a stopwatch, a kitchen timer, or just a clock
step 2: practice for EXACTLY 20 minutes every day or in 20-minute sessions…no more and no less
step 3: during those 20 minutes, work ONLY on something that’s challenging or new
This is the key point: HOW you practice rather than HOW LONG you practice is the key.… » Read full post
Over the years I’ve been asked by friends and fans and drummers what my approach is to practicing. I’ve also been asked to teach or give advice to drummers who feel stagnant and bored with their playing. These are my top 5 recommendations:
#1 SIMPLIFY….go back to just a hat kick snare and tom……youll be inspired because you dont have the usual places to throw your sticks which will change your brain’s habit of performing the same fills youve always done.
#2 Go To YOUTUBE….because there are so many cool instructional videos in all styles…jazz reggae death metal funk punk….whatever youre into…..and pick ONE(only 1) to try to learn.… » Read full post
…just got back from Kingston and the trip/mission was successful…. No real catastrophies like my smoke freakout nightmare in January…other than getting locked in my room a few times because the door kept getting jammed. I recorded 4 more vocal tracks with Brando and they are SLAMMIN…and he sang another tune to me out in the parking lot on my last day that blew my mind…absolutely beautiful words and melody so NOW, I have to go back with one more groove for him. I love to tune in to unplanned magic so I’m PSYCHED!!! Here are some pics below…a couple from my room, one of the studio(Big Yard Studio), one of our tracking engineer “Jah Pynx” who was psyched about his new motorcyle, a couple of Brando hanging out, and one of my sticks and drum pad that i never leave home without ;)
