I have one day left to online shop for my brother's Christmas pressie and I'm drawing a blank. I've already gotten him a couple of things, but I need one more item to make it a worthwhile parcel. He is 33, a drummer, and wears casual, laid back clothes, but no "funny" tees etc. Is there a t-shirt/ book/ small piece of drumming gadgetry/ anybloodything that would suit him? Will have to be available in an online UK store for it to be delivered in time, and my budget is about £20-25. He will be travelling back to London from Belfast after Christmas so it needs to fit in carry-on luggage. Thanks!

I'm in a band in Los Angeles. How do we find a drummer who is competent and understands our music? I've been posting drummer wanted ads every 12 hours on craigslist, but no luck so far. We have recordings and we don't suck. Any general tips would be greatly appreciated...also if anyone knows a good drummer...

Help me come up with a snappy way to refer to a drummer besides as a "seasoned skin-pounder." [more inside]

When I was in Washington DC approximately 8 years ago, I remember being captivated by a street performer playing drums. What was interesting, though, was what his drum kit was composed of; among other objects, he used a shopping cart both to transport his drums and as a cymbal. He also used stacks of pickle buckets
as toms. That's all I can remember. If anyone can provide a picture, a video, or even just a description of all the implements used in the kit I would be most grateful (also, whether or not this man is still performing or any other relevant information). [more inside]
