I mean after all, you in your great wisdom determined by looking at one post Aerosmitten made (which was a whole sentence long and a joke at that) that she is a bad drummer proving how much smarter you are than the multiple university professors from two different countries that wanted her to attend their institutions AND how much smarter you are than the co-founder of Musician's Institute who is trying to convince Aero to go into drumming professionally doing studio work.
If you can tell she is a bad drummer simply by that post while she has fooled these professional musicians who have listened to her work, well then, you must need to learn from you.
I will admit, it was a joke and I did over-react, like I stated I did......2 weeks ago? The reason why I over-reacted was because I took alot of offence to someone who says they changed cymbal companies because their idol did.
Go to www.pearldrummersforum.com and say that you changed your cymbal company because Neil Peart did. Just see the reaction you will get. You would get something along the lines of "You aren't a true drummer" which was meant by my statement when I said "You aren't a good drummer are you?"
I really can't believe how strick this forum is. Seriously, I'm so used to going to the PDF (Pearl Drummer's Forum) and acting the way I do on here and nobody does anything about whatever I do. And to add, the PDF is in the top 100 forums. Funny, how a forum like this is so strick and so into what they talk about and it isn't even in the top 1000 forums.
The PDF has over 18,000 members and yet not one of them care if you say "You aren't a true drummer" because they move on, unlike some people. If someone went on the PDF and was like you aren't a true drummer, they'd be like buzz off prick. Not one drummer have I seen switch any kind of gear because of someone else.
Its just a matter of oppinion. I didn't state that I was smarter than anyone else, I didn't make fun of anyone, all I did was state my oppinion on the situation.
Really though, if you're a drummer and you see another drummer say "Well I switched cymbal companies because of my idol Neil Peart" what goes through your head? Any drummer would know 100% that it seems that they're trying to be the exact same as Neil Peart rather than just using the cymbals they prefer. Which is an insult to any drummer.
Now do you see where I'm coming from? Coming from being a member of an 18,000 member drummer forum who doesn't give a flying shit what anyone else says. They laugh at you if you say things that I said.
Really though. I'm leaving, never coming back again. I would have thought Rush fans like you could give respect to another Rush fan like me no matter what I did or didn't do.
