If you go to VIRGILS website and go to the GALLERY, click on "VIRGIL BACKSTAGE", its the picture of him looking at he camera with his stcks shredding on his practice pads. You will see that there are 3 containers in front of him. What are they??? If anyone has any information please feel free to tell me. I think that they could be some sort of Ginko or something. Not sure though. Rythmtroll here signing out.

Hey Rhythmtroll,

Those little containers were simply vitamins. They weren't supplements or anything funky like that.

You're talking about this picture right?:

Christopher, a vitamin or multi-vitamin IS a supplement.

If you are eating nornal foods for their vitamin & mineral content and take EXTRA or.....are not eating the right foods and take something then,...... you are supplimenting your vitamin & mineral intake.

Not a bad thing whatsoever either way. :)

Thanks for the correction Me.2, but the way rhythmtroll was asking it, I thought he wanted to know if he was in fact using some over the top supplements that would make him become the hulk of drumming after swallowing it.

Now that I look at it, I think some vitamins do help you in more ways than others.

But yeah, they were vitamins :)

Age is a state of Mind..... which is why some 40yr olds sit on a couch and other 65yr olds are Running marathons.

If you think you cant.... then you probably cant. Why are children fed vitamins in their food now.... are THEY old? No.....they're just good for you.... ;)

Thanks for all the input everyone!! So I guess they are vitamins. Thats cool. Trolls are alergic to vitamins so I guess Im screwed. Does anyone know what kind of vitamins they are? And yes Christopher, that is the picture. Gotta love the sticks and bass pedals on that one . He's so casual and yet the picture looks so intense. Personally I like to eat have a good amount of protein and not be too full before a gig. Taking a good nap before a gig really makes you feel energized and relaxed. It also makes ya feel nice and light on the kit. Thats important in drumming. You all should check out my philosophy on rest and how its a key factor in feeling strong and light. Its under "Tips and Tecniques". Go check it out. Who knows, it may help you. It really helps me.......AND IM A TROLL FOR GODS SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So thanks again all you Virgil supporters. Keep playin drums and keep the cool advice and comments commin in. RythmTroll here signing out.
