Fun Stuff about the Artist

Life on the Street

Hi, i'm Fil.
I'm mostly into progressive rock, folk, classic rock....and The Beatles. It was The Beatles and Ringo that inspired me to play drums and i've enjoyed performing in various rock bands for decades. On January 1, 2013 i broke my right arm and couldn't play drums for a while. So i picked up my old Guild and started learning some songs on guitar. Today i have a bunch of tunes and the broken arm doesn't seem like it was such a bad thing after all. I have a repertoire that spans from Bob Dylan to Pink Floyd. Stop by for a listen....Bring yer buds!

The "Triosity" (tree-'ah-city) in my headline refers to "The Terrible Trio", a jam band i played in for about 20 years......I had a lotta fun in that band!

Embarrassing Moment

Ever go for a line in a song and your mind just goes blank?

My Instrument

Drums first and then guitar. I'm a drummer who plays some guitar.

Specifically, i have a black 5 piece Ludwig Classic Maple kit and a mix-and-match vintage Mapex Mars Pro kit (bought a piece at a time on ebay).
My guitars are a Taylor GS Mini and an old Gibson 00 that belonged to my Uncle Paul.

As with most drummers i have a collection of snare drums accumulated over the years in moments of weakness :)

My snares;
1920s Leedy/Ludwig 5x14" nickel over brass
1965 Ludwig Super Classic 5.5x14"
1972 Ludwig Supraphonic 5x14"
1980s Ludwig Supraphonic 6.5x14"
2016 Pearl Session Studio Classic 5x14".
1990s Mapex Saturn Pro (tube lugs) maple/walnut 6.5x14"

The guitar typically goes through a TC Helicon Corona stereo chorus, voice through a TC Helicon Voicetone Harmony-GXT. I'm running voice, guitar and drums through a
Behringer 1224 usb. The cam is a cheap old Logitec.
