    Hmmm. $40 for a drum clinic? I think not.

    Unless I'm missing something, that's seated only, there's also standing for
    $20

    Who wants to stand? :) For $30, I'd rather go to the Village Vanguard,
    where you get a full band, two drinks AND a seat!

    I don't get it. why is Danny Carey such a big deal? I was forced to
    listen to their most recent record recently and it just did nothing for
    me, neither musically or technically. I mean, he's good; but he's not
    *that* good. Am I missing something?

    Maybe, maybe not. Music is a matter of personal taste, so whether you like
    or don't like a given musician is just subjective opinion. Beyond that, your
    own skill level is somewhat of a factor. Notice that many non-drummers are
    impressed with anyone who plays wipeout, while most drummers are bored to
    tears at the very same time.

    I like listening to Danny Carey because he does things that I just would
    never think to do, and makes them work. When compared to other rock
    drummers, he is far more creative and interesting. If compared to jazz
    drummers, he is probably not so much so.

    Is it just him!? Wow, what an ego.

    Sounds like someone has pissed off his sponsors.

    For $20 at Drum Daze, you get two or three guys on the same level as
    Danny Carey, one up-and-comer, and one legend who has actually
    *earned and attained* the status to be able to charge forty bucks,
    if he so chose.

    Well the wierd guy is giving one for FOURTEEN dollars, not FORTY.

    He's pretty good but it's not like he has some super insight, I don't
    hear it.

    I'd rather go see a Morgenstein clinic.

    Curious as to some of the replies on this thread... Yes, I'm aware that
    Danny Carey is probably not the *best* drummer in his genre, nor in any
    others, but I'm not pretending to introduce a definition for best. Am I
    being sophomoric in thinking that his playing is really sweet? I gotta go
    with John P.'s post above as far as the ideas issue is concerned. Most of
    the other drummers that you all have listed I only familiar with in name..
    my fault due to an obsession with electronic music that has diverted my
    attention from drumming. Probably my lack of exposure, but that doesn't
    change the fact that Danny Carey has a lot more to offer than most
    above-average drummers.

    Says who? What else does he have to offer?

    The fact that he's charging 20-40 bucks for something that those
    *way* ahead of him are doing for free gives me one more reason to
    *not* care what he has to offer.

    Fair enough, valid points...

    he's still good.

    He's giving one clinic at $14... which makes me suspect that it is not he
    that decided the NY clinic should be $40 (or, more accurately, $20). The NY
    clinic also include Carl Palmer. Why has no one decided it is CP that is
    causing the higher fee?

    It's at Sam Ash, right? Maybe Same Ash is charging the fee in an attempt to
    keep from having 500 disappointed people not allowed in because of space
    restrictions.

    The bottom line is, I (or you) have no idea why the fee is $20/$40. As with
    anything else, it is not an unreasonable price *if* that's something you're
    interested in.
  18. Who says that HE is charging and not the store or promoter? If others do a
    clinic for free it's because the drum company/cymbal company kicked in the
    salary.
    Carey is a talented drummer, I would like to see You doing what he does
    Mike.
    At times you come off real opinionated for someone with a very tine resume.

    I'll give him credit for his talent but lets face it.... the newest Tool
    album is garbage. Lifeless odd time signature tunes that go nowhere and
    sound like they just decided to record all the tunes that weren't good
    enough to appear on "Aenema". Just my opinion but I'm sticking to it.
    PS Also I saw them two times on their last tour (I only went to see the
    support acts) and Maynard spoke to the audience only once. He said the
    same exact thing at both shows and they were over a year apart. I
    thought that was extremely lame.

    You just described half the people that post here but serously, why
    would anyone need a resume at all to have an opinion?
