Re: Paul McCartney was right...

I gotta feeling that could be a while.

Re: New Logo

I'd like to start a pool. We all pick the number of weeks/days he will keep each drum set.
I'll start, my guess is 2 weeks and 4 days.

Re: Would You Buy This

I think you would get a kick out of playing and experimenting with these sizes.
