    I sit lower today. But back then, I think my seat was level with the floor toms or just slightly below. The Toms were high, but I had them angled so I could hit them. Can you tell I was a big Bobby Blotzer / RATT fan back in the day?

    That's great that you've known Gene for that long; no wonder you know so much about drums and drumming!

    We've been friends since 1979. He was instrumental in our move to Nashville.

    I couldn't convince Borge based on the Maple badge alone, so I told him to post up here in the PDF, and you would tell him...
