Question Who's going to NAMM this year?

Hey guys,

Here's a quick thread to ask those who are going to NAMM in 2 weeks.

I will be hanging out all day and I will be at the Pearl Booth with Virgil on Saturday, January 22nd, 2005 @ 11:00AM where he will be performing. I just found out that he will be playing inside a noise booth with speakers coming out where people can come and check it out. It should be great for everyone who is attending the show.

If anyone here is going, please let me know. It's always great to put some faces next to the nicknames here on the board!

No RadZS, I won't be at the Baked Potato that night. I will only be hanging out at NAMM all day. Virgil will be playing at the GC Drumoff later that day/night at the Wiltern Theatre.

He is very remeniscent of Virgil and is very good but is not in Virgil's class at all. I can explain why but do want to spend my time pointing out all the differences. I have seen a few guy's on this site who are as impressive technically but are not clone's. He need's to achieve his own identity. Why does someone want to mirror someone that much but yet not play on their level it seem's like a waste of time.

Well excuuuuuuuuse me but I think Daniel Luttick is a good drummer! I sent him an email once, because I read on his site that he and his band play PX and DT covers too.. He emailed me back and said that they play dogboots and atlantis..

well sorry but if you can play those songs, you're GOOD!

'the scottster' is lucky to have such a good drum teacher IMO.

I also dig the solo clip!

i still can't believe it..









its like...



he even looks a bit like virgil...


and all the excercises on his site are typed out exactly in virgils style...



his kit is setup exactly like virgil except in left handed style.







sorry.. this is just my opinion.... not saying that it's a bad thing or anything, but i've always believed that having your own spin in your playing is important.. basing your chops on other's chops is fine because learning from mentors is important... but becoming an exact clone or wanting to become a clone is not a good thing IMO. you really gotta play it your way, or play your own interpretation of it... i don't admire drummers that just regurgitate other drummer's chops... especially when they ALL belong to the same drummer.


he is a hell of a good drummer.... it takes skill to learn virgil's chops.... i admit that.

Yes he is good that is not the point, be yourself is the point. He is not in Virgil's league, so why as I said mirror yourself that much to someone else while not acheiving the same level technically and creatively, what do you have to show that is YOUR OWN, not much. We can all cop lick's after awhile but we have to create an identity. Jonberg's clip showed at times a strong influence coming from Virg and Vinnie but he established his own identity at the same time. In the clip he(Daniel) played certain lick's but NOT with the same complexity or power or speed or dexterity or groove and it was very repetitive, yes VERY good but it is just copying the same lick's and not doing it as well. I am still looking for an original identity. I have seen guy's play JUST like Weckl(and play VERY well) as far as copping the same lick's and pattern's and Vinnie also but not doing it AS well and it does nothing for me why because the original IS BETTER! Again the point is not the ability(Daniel is Very talented) FEW if any have the same overall ability as Virg or Vinnie but when you take the influences and make yourself(your own identity) that SHINES through bright and clear and the fact that you are not as technically able does not matter nearly as much.

Just to give him some credit....
He IS ozzy! He was growing up with Virgil as his main influence.
I think he has still time to grow out of that shadow.

Both Gary Novak and Jojo Mayer (especially Gary) actually came on the scene as almost pure Weckl clones. But they where slowly but surely, over time, put in other musical settings that shaped them into what they are now.

I say give him a break,- he's a young OZ kid.
I still have to agree with Kirk, Jonbergs clip showed unbelievable maturity and identity.
I actually have had that maingroove in 6/8 (though simple in it's form) stuck in my brain for the last few days. Great job on his part.

I am really blown away by some of the guy's on this board like Jonberg and Palmerlouie(a frequent poster at HOD by the way )because even though these guy's are still pretty young Louie is only 20(WOW!) I think and Jonberg not much older, they have achieved a pretty high level of technical ability(and even a genuinely diverse stylistic ability) BUT!! they play with maturity and even NOW! are forging their own identity(that is what really blows me away) even though influenced by guy's like Virg, Vinnie, Dave etc. I have to give them props for their overall accomplishments and cannot wait to hear more from them down the road. Jon just knocked me out with his clip, it was just a taste but it was enough to seewhat is REALLY going on with him. Palmerlouie's clip showed great diversity and and overall ability and he is YOUNG MAN scary stuff. Nevesis is a very talented young drummer and the more I see the more I see him coming into his own niche, taking his influences and beginning to really carve out his own identity even though his influnces are clear. I am sure Daniel can do that down the road also cannot wait to see it because he has the technical ability to do great thing's.
