FDP Forum / I'd Hit It! - Drums and Percussion / Modern Drummer Magazine

I just thumbed through the April 2012 issue and found exactly 2 drummers that I know of. They were both in an ad for Evans heads. One was Carmine Appice (I''m a big fan) and the other was Dean Castronovo (a fan, not so much). Oh yeah and there was a blurb about Simon Phillips in their "Back Through the Stack, who was featured in Modern Drummer back in the 80's (I had that issue). Other than that, the mag is full of drummers I've never heard of playing in bands that I've never heard of. Man I'm old. I sound like my dad!

That's why you buy the mag eh? To find out who & what's new, hot, cool.

I mainly picked it up to figure out what's going on. I'm don't want to further embarrass myself in public. For example, I went to the music store after I bought my set to get some new batter heads for the toms and I said I need some Dead Ringers as well. The dude looked at me and said "man, they haven't made Dead Ringers" for years. Oooops! I never got the memo.
