Drummer Billy Carmody...another undiscovered talent.

This drum solo does not show Bill's uncanny timing, enhancement of the
essence, rythmn metronome solid,

Bill has his own band too, ..Stagefright in Las Vegas...



I post this because as an aging audiophile, I discovered this young
man playing in a Las Vegas casino, and I had tears in my eyes he was
so good. He did no solo that night, even 'tho I requested it. I could
tell he did not want to take attention away from the other band
members.

I want to see this boy move up, get huge acclimation and exposure,
like a good artist deserves.

I would rather listen to Bill than Max Weinberg, any day. I rank him
up there with Brady Blade.

You can say that again.

Then I think you're going about it in a rather odd way.

Anyone else suspect that the poster is Billy, himself? I couldn't get
through more than about a minute of that solo. The angle of his snare drum
bothers me. Good live drum sound, though.

No ... I certainly am not Billy. ..Billy might not appreciate
unsolicited help but I like the artist, plain and simple

The solo lacks focus. It appears to be more of a practice session, or
perhaps just experimenting with sounds.

In my world a good solo has a common pattern that returns and morphs.
Something complex but controlled.

I couldn't listen to this for very long.

He certainly has skills though. He just needs to contain it better.

This guy is a good friend from college, who has been an incredible percussionist for years. I first met him at Lincoln College in Lincoln, Illinois. He is from Waukegan, Illinois and introduced me to Miller Light at that time. He also is an incredible swimmer and former lifeguard in the Miami, Florida area. I first met him, though, when he was having some fun playing the introduction to Van Halen's 'Hot for Teacher' back in 1989. Bill has always been a great stage performer and great guy to hang with; he got my respect from day 1. Bill got his degree in percussion at the University of Miami and is in my opinion as good as Neil Peart of Rush fame if not better.
