It Takes Hard Work to Turn Artistic Passion Into a Full-Time Living
"Hip hop grabbed me directly. No middle person. But you didn't have like a path to pursue after high school, necessarily to say, I'm gonna go try this hip hop thing, dad. Yeah, I was fortunate enough that my parents supported me getting a jazz drumming degree. That's a big deal. That's rare. Rare. That's rare. A lot of parents I know you're not gonna make money. Exactly. Exactly. I mean, it's so unlikely, you know, that number of people on earth that can make a good living. It's a handful. And it's the best of the best of the best. I mean, it's the greatest living jazz. And it's the greatest and the most marketable. The ones that promote themselves and package and position their brands in the right ways at the right time. Exactly. My brother talks about this, you know, he's like there's so many he sees so many talented people that are just in there room thinking someone's going to discover them. If you're not building your personal brand and promoting yourself, like what you do through content. Yeah. No one would know who you are. Right. You know, there's probably only, I don't even, I haven't seen any other people do what you do. I'm sure there's a handful of guys that are doing street stuff around the world. Street rapping, but you have built a personal brand that allows you to be known that allows you to generate revenue and a lot of artists, I feel like just work on the craft only and then sit and hope someone discovers them at a night gig once a week. Yeah. But this is a daily thing where you are creating content building personal brand and mastering craft.
Kids Don't Worry About Being Good— They Just Create
"One other thing that comes to mind when you ask about how to sort of gain the confidence to do something that maybe you're not necessarily supposed to be doing or something that's disruptive, like going up to strangers in a public place and saying, hey, let me rap for you. I feel very grateful that I started freestyling when I was a kid. I started when I was ten or 11 years old, and at that age, I think, at least for me, and I think for a lot of people, we're just a lot less judgmental of ourselves. That's fearful. Yeah. Just goofing around, being silly, having fun trying stuff. Exactly. Experimenting. Right, like for me, as a ten year old, I'm in love with this music called hip hop, you know, at a visceral level. I'm in love with the way that it makes me feel, you know, the low end of the base and the Trump smacking hard and this vocal that even though I don't necessarily understand what the rappers are talking about a lot of the time at that age, the way the message is delivered feels so important. And it's just gripping. And so I'm in love with this music and for me, as a ten year old at that time, it wasn't like some big decision that, oh, now I'm gonna start wrapping. It was like, yeah, of course I'm gonna play around and try to rap, you know? Sure. I'm ten. And that sounds super fun to me, you know? And I love this thing. And like, why would I not try my hand at it? You know, at that age, it's almost like finger painting when you're in preschool or something. No preschooler does a finger painting the whole time being like, oh, is this good? We're gonna like this. Like, oh, I wonder, what's the point? Why am I even doing this? Maybe this isn't for me. You know, no preschooler is doing that while their finger painting, they're just getting messy and having fun being creative. Right. And so I think for anybody at any age, you know, because somebody might be listening to this and saying, well, that's great, but I didn't start when I was ten. And I've done a lot of teaching both drum lessons and working with freestylers and aspiring rappers. Yeah. I've taught a lot of private lessons and also done some group stuff in schools. And but when I'm working with people who are a little older, maybe in their 20s or 30s or even older than that, I think one really important thing to keep in mind is as much as possible if you can try to channel that inner child when you're practicing and when you're in the beginning when you're sort of getting comfortable with this idea of doing something that feels crazy, like doing a freestyle, your first ever freestyle. If you can take the pressure off and not judge it and start finger painting. Make it like finger painting. Do something bad on purpose. You know what I mean? Don't try to be good. Make a sound.
How YOU Can Support Steve Bannon
"People support you? We're getting so many questions about that. Go to war room dot org, just catches on real America voice or rumble. All we ask the audience to do is just be a force multiplier. Take the content and push it out. It's all free. No paywall, just hit us at real American voice app, or just come to warm dot org. We try to keep it simple, Charlie. War room dot org is the best way I love that. And the show is great. We listen to it before our show every single day. And this drum beat is continuing and the populist nationalist movement is increasing. And that's why they have to go to these desperate measures.
JK Simmons Looks to Be Working Hard For His Possible Oscar Campaign
"Point I'm trying to make is J. K. Simmons. You know, listen, yes, he looks good for a man. He's 60 goddamn 7. My father died at 61. I'm going to be 16 a few months. I can't look that way anymore without chemical help. You know, I love the guy's a good actor. No doubt about it. I think, well, I know. He probably thinks he's in line for an Oscar nomination for playing Fred marks in being the ricardos. He was very good. That movie is fantastic. And if you got nominated, I wouldn't care because it was a great movie. And I love the movie he did when he played the music instructor with the kid with the drums. Sorry, I can't think. You know what I'm talking about? It was unbelievable that movie. Oh my God. Whiplash, whiplash with Miles Teller, Jay kids, J. K. Simmons playing the music instructor. And Miles Teller playing the drummer, trying to get things right. And J. K. Simmons is not accepting any bullshit at all with the tempo and the speed. It's a brilliant movie, and it ends on such a note that, oh my God, it's brilliant. And that is much as J. K. Simmons work. That really brought him into the forefront of everything. That movie. So either way, he thinks he's been told he feels he's heard. He's in line for an Oscar nomination for being the Ricardo's. So as people must have told him, hey, Jay Kate, get out there more, show yourself. What is it you like to do? You're a health nut, getting the gym, post pictures on Instagram. I'm not much for Instagram. JK, you've got to do it. It's the rave. Do you have TikTok? No. Get to get, that's what's happening, guys. Okay, that's what's happening. The problem is, is we've seen too much of J. K. Simmons already on those God damn insurance commercials. And nobody wants to see grandpa, you know, was a tank top on ripped to shit with great chest hair, except if those men are in their 70s, like Arnold Schwarzenegger and sliced alone, both of whom probably guided J. K. Simmons on how to properly use steroids and human growth hormone to look his most ridiculous best.
Who Are the Real Climate Criminals?
"I have to just have you give us some clarity mark on the disparity geographically. So America is lambasted by the likes of Karl Schwab, the World Economic Forum, Greenpeace, you name it, the guy who worshippers. But which countries in the world, I mean, we have an unbelievable record. I know under the Trump administration, after we left the Paris climate accords, we actually improved our CO2 output after we left that outrageous regime. Who are the real big players that pollute the atmosphere and who get away with it and who seemingly don't care Mark yes, well, great question. First of all, the United States, since the first earth day in 1970, we have radically improved air and water quality, while at the same time improving economic growth and big increases in population. Having done all that, the World Health Organization recognizes the U.S. as among the cleanest air and environmental quality in the world. And this is our success story. And yes, you mentioned Donald Trump. Donald Trump pulled out of the UN Paris agreement and the United States drum roll please Sebastian led the world in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. No other country came close. It was because of our technological innovation of fracking, replacing fracking, replacing coal with fracking, which was a lower emitting, more efficient form of energy and less environmentally disruptive. I mean, you would drill a hole in the ground and then drill horizontally and get the gas out that way. So this was a huge success story. But instead of allowing this to continue, this was all collapsed. And we went from the world for the first time since Harry Truman was president in 1952. We were the world's leading exporter of oil and gas. We had more exports than imports. We had more production than consumption. We were sitting pretty. What every president is Richard Nixon claimed they were going to achieve American energy independence actually happened under Donald Trump. And COVID lockdowns came and pulled the plug on everything. Biden came in and further, you can't say he pulled the plug. He poured the cement upon everything and buried American energy, whereas now their intentionally creating energy shortages. This isn't a side effect. Oh, these energy restrictions. This is a feature of the Green New Deal style, great reset policies upon which they're imposing. And the real villains obviously is China.

Allison Gill Doesn't Like What Is Happening With the Weisselberg Case
"As we speak literally a couple minutes ago, former Trump organization CFO Allen weisselberg has pled guilty in a tax fraud scheme after reaching a deal with the Manhattan DA. So yesterday, I admit to being, you know, a little bitch, a little salty bitch. Because on the surface, it was like, he got, he was going to get 5 months and no cooperation, right? So what has happened here, Allison gill, explain what you think is going on? Yeah, I don't know, but I'm still veruca salt about it. I hate this deal. Why did they need to give him a hundred days in jail in order to get this? So he's flipping after they had already indicted the Trump organization. It's like you had a slam dunk cases on both of these. Trump org and weisselberg, why do you have to give him just 5 months to get his testimony? And the drum board case. I don't like it. Yeah, that's what I mean, but it still means that he can't take the 5th now, right? He has to testify in, what is the difference? Do you understand that? And he's not cooperating against Trump personally, but he's a cooperating against the Trump organization and he can't take the 5th, right? Well, he is not supposed to be able to take the 5th, but that doesn't mean he just won't be full of, I don't recalls and. The prosecution might not even use him as a witness. I mean, he is a piece of criminal. He's a career criminal. A lot of cooperating witnesses are. And that shouldn't stop the Department of Justice or the Manhattan DA in this case. From using that testimony against another entity or in another case, but do you remember the whole Manafort Rick Gates thing and how the jury convicted him without Rick Gates's testimony was just based on the documentary evidence and these were both slammed up cases and I just, I feel like it's probably got a lot to do with when done and pomerants walked out resigned in protest back in January. I just don't like what this office is doing. They're taking a very light handed approach to this and I mean a hundred days for 15 tax crime felonies. What?
Kurt Schlichter's Completely Unfiltered Take on the DOJ and the FBI
"Kurt schlichter is here to help us unpack the raid on Mar-a-Lago Kurt. Here's what I'm trying to understand, why do you believe Merrick Garland has remained silent on the raid? Is there some Discord within DoJ why the silence from the attorney general? Well, it's all part of the plan, Charlie. Look, people keep treating this as if it's some sort of legitimate activity. And you have these soft Frito con senators like what we need to wait to see what evidence they have. Hey, dummy. Have you been a sweets since 2016? These guys have spent the last 6 years trying to frame the president. You think suddenly they're on to something? You think now they finally struck painter? Oh, he took a classified document with him in his files. Oh, we got him now because classified material. Next, you can't have that nail the memo went out. It's a crime again. Look, he's not saying anything because the purpose of this is to intimidate conservatives. It's to try and drum up a reaction from conservatives and conservatives have been taking in general the proper approach. They're not young about torches and pitchforks. Instead, they're focusing on cold and relentless fury. And they will take their revenge. The correct way at the ballot box. And then with brutal and ruthless oversight of these petty fascists. So they remain silent or he speaks, it's all irrelevant because it's all a lie.
Benny Johnson Unpacks Tucker Carlson's Comments on 'The New Right'
"Want to play this tape. Play cut two 77 Tucker Carlson in Iowa. Talking about the new right. Play cut two 77. And I mean like Republican leaders and just on principle, that enraged me. And it's not just evangelicals, but it's basically the average Republican voter is not represented in a meaningful way by his or her leaders in Washington. And I can not stress that enough, and I can not overstate how hostile that makes me. So, you know, I have every intention of staying in the job that I'm blessed to have, but I'm going to keep hammering that, not because I want to weaken the Republican Party. No, because the Republican Party is our only option. That's it. No one's starting a new party. This is not going to work. And we need immediate attention and help. This is an SOS moment. I really feel that way. An SOS moment, Benny, your thoughts. Well, Tucker Carlson is in Iowa, so I'm from Iowa, and you're from Midwest. And so that's very interesting that he's using the platform of Iowa in the first state in the nation to give these remarks I know Tucker. I've worked for Tucker. I don't think he's running for president, but he was asked there. That's his response to are you running for president? And Tucker didn't necessarily say no. So are things going to get super interesting? I don't know, but of course, obviously Tucker is correct there. The easiest thing to say in our business, Charlie is one that you have a receding hairline. And then two, Tucker Carlson is correct. Those are the two easiest things to say in our industry. And so it is absolutely true that Tucker Carlson has been the drum beat and the heartbeat of the Republican Party. And it's also very sad that the Republican Party sort of functions as those same machine corporate machine that the Democrat party functions as inside of the sell a corridor.

What Kind of Gun Would Kamala Harris Let You Have?
"Continuing this drum beat about weapons of war. And the Democrats believe they should be the ones to tell you what kind of weapons you are or are not allowed to have. Here's the vice president of the United States. You know, an assault weapon, like many things, there's a design. There's a purposeful design. Well, for the assault weapon, the design is to kill a lot of human beings quickly. There is no reason for weapons of war on the streets of America. That's their talking point. They love that phrase weapons of war. Well, what gun are you allowed to have? How many rounds are you allowed to have? How many chambers? What kind of gun would Kamala Harris propose? I remember when grandpa Joe once said shoot an intruder through the door with your double barrel shotgun, remember that quote? Remember when he said, oh, I want you to shoot somebody through the door. If somebody's coming at you, have your shotgun out. So you're allowed to have a shotgun?
Joel Gilbert and Eric Discuss One of the Democrats' Biggest Lies
"You actually care about the black underclass in the inner cities in America, you would never ever, ever vote for a Democrat. This is the irony is that the Democrats have somehow been successful in selling the lie that they care about these people when the reality is. And this is the history of the Democratic Party going back to when they were, they were the pro slavery party in the 19th century. Obviously Lincoln rose up first Republican to stand against them. All through their history, they really have been the actual racists, but they have because of principally because of Lyndon Johnson in 65. They've been able to sell themselves as the party that cares for the poor people that cares for the people of color in the inner cities. And you're telling me, again, that we have tons of evidence that the opposite is the case. It's kind of amazing. I'm sorry that most Americans don't know this, but we need to know this. Yeah, well, what they've developed really since the 80s is the very racist idea that if they put as a frontman, someone who looks like them, another black person that black people will assume that the black person on the Democrat party ticket would have their interests and have their back. It's always proving the opposite. Barack Obama did nothing for minorities. Black people. He had to invoke race and drum up the Trayvon Martin thing in 2012 because blacks were even then not on board to vote for Obama again. So this is the concept that they pushed is let's get someone who's a frontman and that's what Michelle Obama did for the University of Chicago medical center. They hired her to keep blacks out of the emergency room because some of them didn't have insurance.
Inflation Rose 9.1% in June, Even More Than Expected
"Inflation surged 9.1% last month. It's the highest since 1981, economists are calling it an alarming surge, but you know, what about the Proud Boys, Liz Cheney, right? We got the Proud Boys to deal with. January 6th, insurrection, coup. Yeah, you stick to that. You keep doing that Democrats. Maybe you bang that January 6th, select committee drum loud enough, somebody's going to listen. I've got a viciously never Trump buddy. And I just sometimes my heart aches for him. He's so enamored with this. Did you see the hearings yesterday? Did you see it? He said, it's really something to watch. And I was trying to be playful with him a little bit. I said, did Liz Cheney save democracy yet? I missed it. How'd it go? I don't think he found the humor in my response.
Jan 6 Committee Holds Its Sixth Hearing
"Is a former aide to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is sharing some of the conversations she had with a guy I know well, former congressman and former director of national intelligence, John ratcliffe, of Texas, and that it was mister ratcliffe's studied view. As it was many, by the way, that the degree to which the president was banging this drum was just not going to be helpful to his legacy, that it wasn't going to prevail. And if people were of that mind, I mean, okay, isn't it? I mean, from Laura Ingraham, deshaun Hannity, to the Fox host, weren't they all like texting people saying, this is not good. He's not helping himself on like January 6th itself. Which I believe is true. That was not a good day for anybody. However, what this committee and what the culture, I think, seeks to shoehorn into your brain, is that if you have any skepticism about the 2020 result, that's the big lie. That if you
Gov. Scott Walker: Thank God Senate Didn't Confirm Garland for SCOTUS
"Protesters activists, people on the far left are literally breaking federal law, camped out in front of the homes of Supreme Court Justices, voicing their displeasure through bullhorns and banging drums and obscenities and everything else carrying around bloodied baby dolls and yet Merrick Garland and the Justice Department and the Biden administration don't seem to have any inclination to at least enforce the law. Isn't it fascinating how the media has the mainstream media at least has refused to even acknowledge the lawlessness of these protesters? If it was reversed, there'd be pants on fire, their hair would be on fire. Although I do have to say, Mike, one thing just an aside, I just knocked some in the Senate. This is where they deserve credit from a few years ago. Thank God they did not confirm Merrick Garland as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court for all this talk about him being some reasonable middle of the road person. He's not. He's a total left wing lackey. And the idea that earlier this year, he would allow his Justice Department to be aligned with the national association of school boards when they were calling concerned parents showing up at school board meetings domestic terrorists and really trying to intimidate them. This is the same Justice Department that, as you mentioned, this isn't just a bad idea. This is a federal law that prohibits people intimidating officers of the court. That's justices, judges, prosecutors, understandably so. We don't want people who are before the court out trying to intimidate a judge or a justice and their family, you know, that's something you think of years ago with the mafia or somebody else in organized crime trying to do that. They should be prosecuting those people to the full extent of the law and they certainly need to step up once this decision comes out. What was alleged to have happened or could have happened against Kavanaugh justice Kavanaugh? I think is a prime reminder about why this is just so important.
Biden: Ukraine's president didn't want to hear Russian invasion threat

Have We Done Enough? Chris Buskirk Weighs In
"Chris, you have done something remarkable in terms of having a place for the intellectual activities of America first to be spelled out by crucial voters. And not just voters, but thinkers in that community. Have we done enough of the heavy lifting in the last two years? Tell us what your list of druthers has in terms of what else has to be flashed out in the maga intellectual universe. Yeah, have we done enough now? I mean, if you ask me that next year, if I achieve every goal for at American greatness that we have, I'll still say no and if we achieve and exceed every goal 5 years from now, I'll still say no, there's always a lot of work to do. Well, the idea you're very successful businessman and that's the right attitude, right? Yeah, yes. I mean, I think it is. It would never complain. We've always got to keep our feet moving. And because there really is a lot to do. I mean, we sort of know what our goals are in general. But we need to achieve them. We've achieved some of them, but there's a lot left to do. It's not like we're on the one yard line of getting everything done. We're still deep in our own territory. I mean, the thing about the Trump movement about Donald Trump was that he shined a light on all of those things that had been ignored for a very, very long time. Like I was talking about earlier. The issue, how do we deal with China? How do we deal with the fact that the globalists in our country have exported the United States manufacturing base that we've exported our middle class that we have tens of millions of illegal immigrants in this country that have been let in over the past 20 or 30 years? And what does that do to middle class wages? What does that do to neighbor? It's all of these things. We know what those things are. But we need to we need to implement the fixes. And so part of, you know, part of our job is not just identifying these things. We have to keep up the drum beat that just because we talked about them for the four years of the Trump administration. Those things didn't all get done because the entrenched forces opposing us were significant.

It's down to the game. They don't wanna bruin the game with like a call and make it. Come down to the referees. let the players play. Well a non call leaves it to the referees to in my opinion. But it's not an open and shut case. Jack is the cowboys are an enormous franchise good meal. They're often the most valuable franchise in the world. You know one more note on the nfl. and then i'll shut up about it for those. You don't watch it i guess but I remember years ago reading out if this is still true that the schedule makers went out of their way to try to get the super bowl winner to lose a game in the first two games. They always scheduled such away as we want to get the super bowl winner. A loss early to to to heighten everybody else's feeling of you know we. This could be our year or anybody could win. I don't know if that's that was part of the whole parody. Move your schedule. The of your schedules based on how well you did last year. So yeah a complete change of topic and yet another illustration of how the biden administration has put itself in impossible space. An impossible place with the tally ban. That's right oh yeah afghanistan. Play this clip thirty michael. I can't think you'd explains itself. Pretty well also sounding pleased. Us officials evacuation of american stalled with at least one hundred still left in the country. Raise give into what has been a bloodthirsty militant group. We had to work with some members of the taliban to press them and to work in a business like manner to get them out taller. Not so business. Like in the northern afghan city mazaar-i-sharif where militants of block charter flights. As many as eleven hundred at risk people remain stranded like longtime us military translator and special visa holder. Farah dune has zine. He's fearful of returning to kabul airport where he's been rejected and abused by. The taliban died of of the situation at these flights are not allowed to takeoff the united. Have to travel to kabul by road or by land. Which means that once again. I'll take my hainan. Might hate in in my hands and tell the taliban that you have the tries to kill nearly me. Go so greg. Palkot of fox news doing that report. He goes on to describe women being beaten down the streets journalists being tortured and the rest of it. It's Boy it's not a good thing to be To oh a regime like that a favor so you gotta wonder why jen psaki. In the bite administration feels like they've still got a say things like a very businesslike attitude among the taliban what leverage they still have over us that we have to continue to talk them up that way gotta be our people the translators although there they're just in terrible straits anybody who worked with us just they still have enough of our people that were terrified vaccine mandate.

"Do we have that clip. Yeah none of this is about supporting life. What this is about is controlling women's bodies and could flowing people who are not six gender man. This is about making sure that someone like me as a woman or any menstruating person in this country cannot make decisions over their own body. I like how she she's trying to be woke but first she said woman then realized. Oh that's right. And i think i'm supposed to say we got an email saying what about postmenopausal women. What are they about the early into the clarification for mayo see. Oh by the way everybody got hung up on. And i don't blame me. A new getting hung up on menstruating people that didn't get into the threat of what she's saying which is just insulting and wrong. The reason people who are pro-life are pro-life. It's because they believe there's a human being in there that is being murdered. Not because they want to control women's bodies that's that's an idiotic argument is idiotic any home paranoid schizophrenic argument. When you decided to person there is up to you but It's not about controlling. Women eos responding to the commentary on menstruating. People has tweeted out today. Trans men and non bare near by Can i get another take on that show. Just go home. I'll go home will do monday goal. Moore's or emotion mouth. Maybe i should get more phil competence. News trans men and non binary people can also menstruate tweeted along with a screen shot of a daily mail headline that said. Afc calls women menstruating people while explaining the female body she She goes on to say some women. Also don't menstruate for many reasons including surviving cancer that required a hysterectomy. Gop matt this and are protecting their patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders. Oh my god you know. I said this i said this the other day. Maybe it bears repeating this sort of demonizing of one's opponents is usually reserved at least in the modern era for like warfare Where you say you're a you know your opponent or baby leaders or went into a hospital maternity ward and killed all the babies that sort of thing to to suggest that just your mere political opponents are are somehow enslavers of women. That's insane that's crazy talk. And it's dangerous. Trans men and non binary people can also minster it. Now get well. I'm sorry. I thought we're in trouble if i don't call them a woman so then she a trend. I can't believe i'm not smart enough to figure this out yet. But i still am not Trans men with you say at trains main. That means the person was a woman correct or not. Well it depends where they are in the transition. You're supposed to accept their description of who they are now. But i guess i have to assume that a trains man used to be a woman if they're menstruating because dudes don't menstruate sorry they just don't unless you used to be a one in which case you you can't you still are a woman you can hit me with all your critical theory crap you want if you have a uterus and your menstruating you are a female you can identify our you can act however you want you can dress you now. Everyone you can roll around in a sack and marry whoever you want. I don't care it's none of my business but don't try to. I've never used this term before. Gaslight me into saying somebody with a uterus who menstruate and is impregnated is a dude no gop mad at this are protecting their patriarchal idea that women are most valuable uterus holders. There you go near a paranoid little twit again. That was disrespect lama christian man. I retract that statement. I don't know what demon got into me. I think in the modern signalling what side you are. It's just another remember me. I'm on your side. that's all it is. I think that's all that's going on. Both sides a lot. Can i not be a party to that. I don't have any interest in that sports like tennis. I recognize it's interesting. It's exciting a lot of people like it. I don't mind that. I think you should enjoy yourselves. I have no interest in it. You have interest in the nfl which kicked off last night. The number one sport in america number one show in america controversial.

I can't ever hear that without thinking about if you've seen the like the tick tock video of the deer and the backyard up it's been ages to that drumming thing so funny what if If the fbi ever wants to get the truth out of me distract me down and play that song twice. I'll tell you what. I never want to hear it again. Anyway phil collins is going out on. Tourney can no longer drum announced says here. He's considered one of the greatest drummers of all time is that accurate I don't have any idea how to judge them in terms of being a good drummer and it listen. I don't want to come off as an anti hyphen list. Because that's too easy number. One a hell of a solid drummer. He's a really good vocalist and a lot of stuff. He did with genesis. I think is is really good but anyway. He's just a solid drummer. He is easy getting older. He's seven years old and They're going out on tour. Genesis fall reunion tour. You wanna see geneticists. And he said he suffered severe nerve damage to his hands making it impossible for him to even grip drumsticks little play the instrument So he will be on tour genesis doing the singing but his son. Nick will play the drums for the band during the tour. That's nice alario. Lovely some phil collins news for you. We have a lot of good stuff to get. Maybe not that good later. In the allen that buddy knows that solo though abso absolutely undeniably so we have a lot of good stuff to get to but first it's time to take a look back at the week that was it's cow clips we. It's time for a meal. I had been a democrat. Can you imagine what would have happened. It would have been talked about in bangladesh. They would've called it. An example of systemic racism been patient with our patience is wearing thin and in contrast to what our idiot president. That was unkind that you know what that was disrespectful. Colin joe biden idiot. He's not an idiot. He's senile anyway hitting with a bioweapon. You monster you want to suppress me want to kill me. You son of neiman music and easy to kill. I'm not putting some experimental drug in my body you do actual to me confirms what we've known for months which is that xiaojie lied to us. Dozens of times. Usually he tells us that it's for our own good. I've said for months at tony falcon now clearly lied to congress so she he should be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Someone tells you they fought and he should disown them immediately the rebound bowel obstruction which is a medical projects. This is about making sure that someone like me as a woman or any menstruating person in this country cannot make decisions over their own body say congresswoman congress.

We're talking and then as it got closer and closer to the moment we all know the moment I said. I said you should pay attention to this. Because this is probably the most famous little drum solo in the history of drumming. Wouldn't you say that's true. I saw an online or a youtube list of the ten greatest drum fills of all time. And of course it was number one dude dr phil collins in the middle of the air tonight and i saw him. Do it live a few years back and it was.

And i saw i saw it in concert and phil con's doing the like the garth brooks head mike thing and he's just walking around the stage singing. I remember you know really slow. It took forever and the creek could just fill the anticipation of every man and woman and child in the arena building up to that drum fill and he was so silly and he's on the stage me so far away do you think. Is he going to get over to the drums in time. Is he not gonna play it. Oh my god he's not gonna play it.

"You know again. My my perception of the cocktail drum is. It's just a weirdo instrument that you know maybe had its moment in the sun as a weird gimmick but i feel like over time people have really embraced it as a strange experimental instrument and i think there are a lot of people who are trying do it. That probably didn't know what a cocktail job was. So few quick examples are Drummer named ross arbor. He was the drummer and one of the singers in a band called the four freshmen which was a male vocal group in the fifties and he would perform he. Has this weird custom rack. It almost looked like the base of a desk table top taken off but it just had a snare drum into symbols but he would stand up and play this thing and sing so again just just experimental drum set up. It was like i see it. And i'm like this guy had the first drummer ac. Yeah that's basically what it was Other people no tucker from the velvet underground you know. She had her kick drum flipped on its side and played it with her hand. She didn't use her foot. I mean she. She couldn't sometimes she would but she would just play the kit and just play based room with her hand I think she would sit. But i'll still give it to her because that was a really cool thing to do her. bill conway. Is the drummer in a band. Called treat her right and then which later became morphine He had a ludwig cocktail drama. I think was a sixteen. And he played that exclusively treat right for a while and then he did play on some somewhere phen- tracks as well. I don't know if you're familiar with that band. But they're amazing. Van out of boston in the eighties and nineties morphines in the nineties and But he he did play the cocktail. entreaty right of some videos. Out there of him playing it cool very very cool and he got he had the thing sounding great actually with him a bunch when i first started the website and he was really really great. Guy really nice Also slim. Jim phantom from the stray cats right he kick and snare and couple of symbols and i think later he threw hat on the side. But you know he he was doing it. Basically made his own version of the ludwig gold coast and did that He and zinsou. I think a lot to with it in that world and and it it just kind of like. It's one of those things where like you said where like it just fits perfectly and it's really a part of the sound by kind of that rockabilly sound. It's kind of gangly and it. Just it fits really well. Yeah and and those guys. I mean they. They broke everything is everyone was in hair bands. You know like halfway there metal metal was was king in here. These guys don't rockabilly in a weird guy. Standing up playing kicks a symbol. It was pretty pretty impressive stuff Yeah there's another band from. Canada called moxie fruitless. That was around for the nineties And he other. I don't know how to pronounce his name. Ian jean j. a. gamez she He was the lead singer and play the drums and he had a kick drum with a snare basket..

And there's like a high hat stand has like to hi hats connected and it's like a bar and it's like they were doing wild. It's the drums have always been out there and wild and different there were double bass drum pedals. Aided in the twenty in the before. I don't would and So the technology. I mean i never when i was a kid. I grew up with symbols hanging off a piece of leather. And you couldn't even bryant. You had to use the hi hat to ride thing. You can do that at first because it was a low voice then. It became a hi hat. Of course baby dont had one. That got up to worry could play it. Your couldn't tune heads. It was a big deal when you had one. Top head was notable the bottom. Ed was still tacked on calf heads. No and it's a very people. Forget that it's very unique.

That the you know the original you know the the christmas special that we're talking about probably three times like last week. Did you get sick of. Did you not want anything to do with it. Do not wanna hear it. Do you separate yourself from it for awhile. What i left. I left shortly after. It's done twenty four and then i went onto why you know and of course when you're that age you have you're out there fighting those battles you know not playing high hat on two and four which really disturbed people on as we were trying to do with drugs that tie trying to go forward in imply time understand how it works getting to see how the drums is another voice in the band. You know i could play court changes as good as any horn player. They force men were and so i let it be and i didn't like people always bring it up. It was kind of a. And then i would touch it in my manager. Colin mackenzie slowly slowly would say. Hey these people you know. Pbs wants to do something about choice. Christmas so i would do the interview. And then i couldn't do it because i did wanna be played as a character. I didn't want to be like some guy in holiday inn.

And and it's so funny because Again i was saying just moved to a new House and we were walking around the neighborhood. They did a thing where there's like you know you. You put those luminary things outside and people were walking up and down the street and there was a little. I say little because they were like in grade school. They some kids who had drums and a bass and a keyboard setup and they were playing They were playing music from that album and it was just unbelievable. It's ever is. It's it's it's far out.

"This pre show showed the pd drums. so i they. They didn't say much about him. In the in the pre show there was not much detail they just said. Talk to your rep about you know getting signed up for these it's a separate franchise so when i did the sit down at the pb booth. I ordered in. And i think it was Maybe six drum sets and twenty four pieces of hardware which to me at the time sounded like an awful lot but it also sounded like the golden ticket They they looked great at in there. There was very little detail they they did have a flyer in. It says that they're six ply all maple shells a plan the bass drum What really startled me was the castings. The based on pedal in the hi hat had the. Pd's logo casts right into it. Obviously a lot of thinking gun into this wasn't a a private label thing. These were this was a whole new drench. Not a big drumline. They were like two kits and only two colors. You could get him in black or white and that was it But still at the pricing in shape. And i could just editions of these bands coming in that would bias reinforce. Pvs now they were going to be buying tv drums. So i got them all in order and they showed up on the back order records. That started coming in monthly for a couple of months and then they disappeared. I mean everything all the hardware. I mean it's been three or four pages out of this print out. That was all drum stuff just with the because of the different product numbers on all the hardware and everything in it was all gone. No trace of as and i called direct to see if something had gone wrong with their computer or something hadn't been announced or whatever and he didn't have too much to say said that basically there wasn't enough interest at the show there wasn't enough interest shown so they decided not to do it and i i just hung up the phone..

Obviously we weren't likes keeping track of inventory and having accounting but if things like that like we were just straight up messing around mostly my brother at that point but i was out like kinda like pimpernel like my brother does this. I thought it was so cool. Cool in a few thousand is when it really started like he graduated high school and when to college and he went to the university of southern maine. I think for for music education. He wanted to be a teacher so again he was way into. We're very different people. He was way into reading music in learning about bearing edges in different configurations in a punk. Rock band. didn't know how to read music. You know learned it a little bit in high school but But i was out there. Punk rock shows like just being interested in what crazy color combinations. We could come up with so young cool. It was cool fun hobby for for the first five or six years. Two thousand four two thousand five is when it really started getting serious for us. That i mean man that like So i'm thirty. So you're you're a little a little before me but that that time there and my brothers around In between our ages there where he was playing more in that bike hardcore punk pop punk. You know era. That was that time. I mean that was like a golden time for all of that So which which i think is you know. There's a lot of players of sjc who are in that world so that's kind of foreshadowing but and you said your brother's name is scott correct correct okay. Cool alright.

"That's going to last me six months cuz I'm not changing these freaking things and buy it again sure. If you can experiment. I love the I've had kids took bought him and they've had coded top and bottom and I go oh my God, I love that or and I loved on a bass drum. I had a Yamaha kit that I got and sold but coded, you know batter head and coded front head off and I loved that sound because I'm always like okay superkick too. Sure with me and then, you know super Mike friendly. Yeah exactly. They're good Universal, but but it's wrong. Really cool to have that that coded on the bottom. That's a great point it just it you know, it controls the drum maybe like two two or three percent. It's basically doing the job of you having like the tiniest package of tape on the bottom head without you having to do it and I find that like that's really useful when most times anything. I'm putting one ply coat of heads on both sides..

Why don't you may give us the top five questions? Everyone always asks in. You can kinda quickly. Give us a little answer, and maybe you can kind of. Answer some things. I should have written. I should have my sheets with be but I can tell you I can tell you. An easy one is sure this is. This is great I, love it. How do I get good base? Trump's out. But his own gold based. What's good and in? A in an, but that's the question again, so it's that's that's so. The answer is whatever fits music. Of obviously what all of those then demonstrate by three different tunings on the Bass Drum, and then they let them decide what which ones good. I always think about shooting this dance of the host thinking about changing being low medium high very simply. Blow blowmeuptom high on a thin medium or thick trim, which you can interpret as deputy ambassador an pro. Put those three together against there's other three. An unpractised.

So you'll look a but his narrow new. Blimey. That's tight. That's a high tuning or you're looking at In bones, tuning in your look out, decide that is another another tension.

Diane one hell of a dry sounding latest recordings I've done his. bonkers dry, brilliant very. But equally I was talking about Roland. Developing instruments electronic instruments which actually dial snap back. So. It's so funny, so you can get the old guys back in the in the. In the Vaudeville and the solid navy days.

Bend is another good one by one. Jones occasion got video and Pitch Bend, which is Great. It's funny because the drum. The drum that I use is just a basic alcohol. One I'm and it showed pitch bend really really well. By tried it. One of my high end zone is and I could get joked pitchman. Was Lights to so it's the drum yet. The Drum would not let me do it was it was really strange? Had obviously the ahead high-tension? Residents are low tension and he just would do it. So.

Ambassador Click and I in the mid sixties, and soon as that happened, he had dramatic actress buying these things to put on their drums to sell them because it basically sold. Their real estate, they could some out by one hundred percent. Not Selling what the inside of drums look like as well as the outside, sure and for me. It was the the biggest.

"It sounded really good. I bought the set purely for the sound that the same thing with black beauties radio kings toms and bass drums especially vary widely in their consistency. And good drums bad. Drums abused drums taken care of drums. I weeded through it and I had the luxury of doing that at the time because they were cheap. I mean you could buy a thirteen inch. Radio King Floor Tom for one hundred two hundred fifty dollars and a bass drum hundred fifty two hundred your dollars but I went through five thirteen inch drums to get one really rock and thirteen. Fourteen just had to go through to have gene in Kruger's twenty inch four. Wow that's amazing. I got that from Barrett deems. He passed away would docket about it. He gave them a booth at the Chicago. GEICO show in the late nineties. And we're sitting there talking about and he said I got this drum in my living room. Gene gave me. I used to a lamp stand and when he passed the the the guy that was hired to get rid of his drums brought it to the Chicago show and sitting there looking across the aisle that drums man. That's got to be that drum in it. Had the tobacco stains on it for him spitting hair from his dog his cat still on it at the start of the day he was asking five hundred four and nobody wanted to five hundred. Nobody wanted to the four hundred. Nobody wanted three hundred finally at the end of the day. He says. Come out to my car and and the drums sitting on the ground behind his car and he says looking my car and see if there's a way for me to get. This drove the car that go to that guard. Two hundred SS assist okay. I'll tell you two hundred dollars for gene. Croup is floor Tom. I can't believe given to bear it deems by Jean Group. I feel like Brooks would be all over that. Nobody's ever going to be all over that I've got a kid knows what it is. And he's a drummer to those straight. Damn when I'm gone on you know he's a that's the great thing about having a collection and a kid who's the driver that interested in it because you don't have to get rid of it when you get older because you could just give it to the kid. Yeah now is. Is this your son. who had the complications? You sold the drums. Yes yes he's okay and he's a drummer day and now he just finished his first tour with the band out of Nashville Ville. And he's about to go to Europe with that same band so it's great you know I'm on the road and I'm fixing load into a venue somewhere and here's my son calling from the road the fictional lead into a venue somewhere like that's what it's all about. Yeah successful. My other son is a computer guru wouldn't in Silicon Valley he makes all of us looks to say that's pretty cool to anything else. No John I just want to. I want to thank you for being on the show Where can people find you if they want to check out your stuff to Google? John Aldridge website for them. If you do a Google image image search for John Aldridge in grave drums. You'll find a ton I'm and then if you go to my facebook page. There's photos in the photo galleries that you can go through. Their all. Public is a lot of the projects. I've done there some folders ahead just wonder I'm in a some. Have you know one hundred drums. But then recently I've been doing more on instagram. My idea on instagram. His Drum scratcher My idea facebook is just John John Aldridge. Those are the two best ways to reach me. Because everybody's got those two ways. I would suggest messaging leader at Drum scratcher at g mail DOT COM or north through the facebook website. Perfect man I didn't realize how affordable really it is for you to to knock out a drum for someone because I would have thought it would have been like two thousand bucks to get a snaring graves. You can get it up there if you really want to. But most most people don't I say the number of fifteen hundred NDALA enough jobs that I've done in the last twenty years is probably account among both hands like a drum set. If you see one of the drum sets have done those are like Muslim project for that. You're going to have a lot of money but you know for the most part. I didn't get into German graving to become drum engraver braver or to make money. I got into Drum Greg because I was a teacher and I had no money and so the only way I was going to get was to do it myself or find a way you to get it done and I tried to find a way with couldn't afford it and learning was the only way will you've done it.
