          Dale Crover is the greatest drummer alive! Dale was the reason i got behind a drum kit over 8 years ago. He is truly the most amazing drummer I've ever seen.

          btw...Melvins are about the launch a huge US tour and i highly recommend all drummers to go checkout Dale Crover do his thing.

          Go Melvins

                    He's a funny guy.
                    We have him on Videotape talking about what it's like being gay.
                    It's totally funny....He's going "Lynyrd Skynyrd? Just like me, they were Gay! It takes a real man to take it up the ass!"
                    It's hilarious, because he's speaking with a "Suthurn" Drawl.

                    He uses an 18"x24" Kick, 16"x16" and 18"x18" Toms. Also he had two of the Engelhart crashers that were about 22" wide. The Cymbals were basically big thin Rides.

                        When they played here last time, he didn't have the 24" Floor...so that article must have been after that. They played a "club" (if you can even call it that) that is literally no bigger than my living room....it's a litle place, and it was so freaking hot it wasn't funny.
                        And he was back there pounding away like a madman.

                        The Guy really is a killer drummer....I wish I could get into their music, but I just don't....It's like Jazz in the sense that I can't relate to it.
                        I do like the Kiss cover songs though.

                          I've seen them 3 times, and I can't remember ever seeing a floor tom that big either. I wasn't even aware that a 26" ride existed. They're coming on tour again, so make sure to catch them again, if just for Dale.

                            i believe the guy who wrote that article made a mistake. Dale's live Tama Artstar kit is 26" kick, 16X16 tom tom, 20" floor tom and that 22" gong bass drum. I spoke with Dale two years ago and he is now endorsed to Paiste. He said Zildjian quit sending him cymbals because he breaks 2 or 3 per tour. Dale's ride is a 24" 2002, 15" hit-hat, and his crash is either 20" or 22"....plus a huge china, ice bell, 2 ribbon crashers, cow bell, a medium size crash set cymbal and of course a gong.

                            btw...Foo Fighters song "My Hero" is about Dale Crover. Dave Grohl, like many others, is inspired by Dale and used to talkup Dale and the Melvins in articles back during the Nirvana hey dayz. Plus the drum beat on "My Hero" is very similar the drums on the song "Night Goat" by the Melvins.

                            Go Melvins!
