And you thought you lost a lot of work when drum machines hit the market. Wait til you see this!
Of course we’re only half kidding. Notice I said “half”. ;) This robot might look kinda of silly right now but it’s only a matter of time before they perfect these things and put them on the market. Think no one will buy them? There are a number of band leaders out there that would be happy to trade a slightly stiff feel for a bad attitude. Ha! OK, I’m not saying they’ll take over, but we’ll definitely have some new competition. – Look out drummers!

A very sad day for us all. Michael Jackson , the “King of Pop”, passed away today. There are so many memories. His music was always so funky! I found this video on YouTube of a young drummer jammin’ out to one of Micheal’s tunes, “Jam”. It was a reminder of all the times I played his songs through the years and how popular they were among the crowds. – We’ll truly miss you Michael. Rest in Peace.

Almost everyone would love to be a rock star! ~ To be able to travel the world and live the lifestyle is a common dream of musicians and others alike. Who wouldn’t want the attention of a legion of screaming fans clamoring for you to perform? Thanks to the revolutionary video games Guitar Hero and Rock Band, now anyone can get up on stage and become a Rock God. Using game controllers shaped like musical instruments, players can perform songs by popular artists from a variety of music genres. But there has been a firestorm of controversy in the musician’s community of whether these games are actually helping or hurting music and musicians.
