    AHH! Gold Bond; my best friend. Most beloved on the hot, summer, outdoor gigs. A few years ago I was at work, talking to my whife on the phone. I asked her to pick me up some of my Magic drumming powder as I was running low. People heard the conversation and it took me quite some time to get them to understand that I was talking about Gold Bond and not something else.

          I take about 30 min before each gig, stretch a little and do some rudiments on a pad with a pair of marching sticks.

            I've gotten better lately about stretching out, warming up my hands and wrists, and depending on the gig, the rest of my body. I drink a ton of water the day of a show to be really hydrated, and I often find a squishy ball helps get the blood flowing in my hands.

                A banana and a couple of pints of Shiner. Gotta keep the potassium up, amirite?


                I typically don't get an opportunity to properly warm-up at a gig. Don't feel loose until halfway through the first set.

                  sometime during the course of the day, I will eat a meal of Chicken McNuggets, Large Fries, Large Diet Coke. If I dont have this, its a bad night.
                  No nuggets, no groove.
                  Also, at the gig, not too much booze. Maybe a shot if someones buying, but usually just water.
                  BUT IF THERE WERENT MCNUGGETS EARLIER IN THE DAY, IT DONT MATTER!!! GONNA BE A BAAAAAAD NIGHT!
                  Wha?
