DRUM WORKSHOP LAST NIGHT

That was SUPER fun last night! Jimmy Degrasso is a legendary “metal” drummer…quite funny because he doesn’t consider himself a “metal” drummer like he said last night because he grew up listening and playing jazz. It was funny that he was talking about Davide Lee Roth, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, like they were some local musicians! hahahahahaha…it was great though – he had a lot of good things to say that I think A LOT of HK drummers needed to hear. He talked about how drum solos and going crazy on the drums is NOTHING – the most important part is to make the other musicians sound good. That is what he said is the main job of a drummer. How amazing is that! He also talked about how sometimes certain styles of music really need you to bang hard, and other styles of music don’t need it, but the key he said is never to be tensed up. Your arms and your person should always be relaxed when playing drums…

Good speaker…he was funny too which was good… :-)

昨天晚上我去了看这个美国鼓手的表演和教鼓的课。。。特好听。。。他还有很多好东西说。。。很多东西好像是给香港的鼓手听! 哈哈哈哈。。。他说一个鼓手的责任就是让到其他音乐人好听。。。就是说做很厉害的鼓SOLO是没有意思的东西。。。他还有说一个鼓手最需要是很放松自己才可以打的很好。。。

真的好看和听。。。而且他也是很好笑所以真的不错。。。

WEEK’S OVER!!!

Dude…hellish feeling week!!! This student teaching stuff is awesome…just solidifies in my heart that I made the right career decision years ago when I accidentally came back to work in my school (god – to think that was 6 years ago is crazy!!!). Anyway…it’s great…when I’m done I’m excited to start applying to schools all over Hong Kong. But the most exciting part will be when I walk into my OWN classroom and see the name Mr. Farooqi up on the board or the walls. I can’t wait for my kids to be referred to “Oh, those are Mr. Farooqi’s kids!” Can’t wait…

Anyway…

I don’t know if you guys watched that stupid shit that happened in Taiwan with that poor official from China. That type of bullshit makes my blood boil. Forget the fact that the official is from Mainland China, the guy is 60 something years old! That poor man is probably a grandfather, has children, has grand kids, and may have other health-related issues. How good could you feel about yourself yelling abuses at this man? How good could you feel about yourself when you pushed this man to the floor! Are you crazy!? What happened to human decency! Ridiculous…so disgusted by that situation when I watched it on TV.

Guns N’ Roses new song is online…check it out

Unearth’s latest album debuted at #45 on the billboard charts. Yes – it’s proof that metal is back in the US for sure…

Reports are saying that AC/DC’s new album sold 800,000 copies in it’s first week!!! Holy crap!!!
