Thanks Barry. The first drum set I ever bought was a used set of Rogers that were white and had black stripes on them making them look like Alex Van Halens kit. They came with a couple roto toms that I used when I played Van Halen stuff. I always thought Alex was a very good drummer, but I didnt like his over use of the cymbals. Just way too much.
On another note, I caused a trainwreck at church today. We have a new guitar player playing with us and he's really technically good, but is a horrible time keeper, so I was asked to count off before every song or start playing the groove so everybody could fall in. Well we just got done playing 'Victors Crown' and its a show stopper that kicks. After the song was over we went into a slower song in 6/8. I just could not feel it and my groove was all wrong. Took the band 2 verses before we got on track. It was bad.
