Half a Dozen Splashes

I apologize for the recent lack of loops over the past week. As you know, there is lot of behind the scenes work going on at ryangruss.com in preparation for June 1st. Between the film crew in my house, the international press junkets and my fresh Botox injections, it’s been hard to keep up with the day to day administration of this site. Plus it’s Memorial Day weekend, so I’m also busy barbecuing and drinking beer.

To keep you entertained in the meantime, here’s a tour of Stewart Copeland’s kit from the recent Police reunion tour. Normally, I make fun of people with splash cymbals (especially six of them), but Stewart is one of the few who can get away with it.

  1. No xylophone for Synchronicity? The Police reunion tour is one of the shows I regret missing in the last few years… they were my favorite band in 6th grade.

  2. i’m not a drummer and I have no idea why splash cymbals are not cool

    to me, those splash cymbals sound good, not when they’re smashed, but played with the stick tip … paradiddle-like or whatever

  3. On the 5th day God created drums.
    And then for a long nothing happened.
    Then Stewart Copeland came along and reinvented:

    The snare
    The hi-hat
    The splash
    Oxygen

    Are all drum techs this sycophantic?
