Your Input NUMBER 1: T-Shirt Design?
We’re on the brink of releasing a brand new t-shirt based on one the band’s most famous sayings. We have three designs we’ve narrowed it down to.
Which one would do you like best?
Which one would you be willing to drop coin on (assuming you were dropping coin).
Let us know in the comments section.
So, we’re not necessarily asking who you think the BEST drummer in rock and roll is…
Rather, we’re asking which drummer reaches you most. Who is is YOUR personal favorite, regardless of technical skills – the one whose rhythms, grooves and pockets just set your musical soul aflame!
What do you think?
Let’s hear from you!

T shirt number one for my vote.
Bowie for complete collection, pretty much got it all
He would be (and is) one of mine (Andy’s). Good call, as always.
Thanks for the vote for T-Shirt #1.
That seems to be the clear winner.
Elm Treason is the only band I have any kind of collection on. I have the complete studio collection, just one CD per album. Not the bells and whistles stuff. The rest of my collection are audio files. And maybe 75 CDs.
I like the wave form Tshirt.
plus the video of Bare Tones because I wanted to see who was playing lead at why time, although y’all are always on your assigned channel. Plus it’s good to see when you’re really having fun.
Again, a million thanks. Our appreciation is beyond measure, Bill. Truly.
We were hoping there’d be many who would enjoy watching the video, if only to see what roles we play within the perimeter of each track.
Well, thank you, man. Wow. An honor, if ever there was one. We’re thrilled beyond adjectives that you deem our music worthy enough to land the entire studio catalog (plus Bare Tones). I (Andy) haven’t the words..
And thanks for the input on the t-shirt!
1st design works for me, i have a discography of the Beatles complete works, love it.
Hi Martin! Andy here,
Thanks for the t-shirt logo vote.
I, too, (among others) have the complete works of the Beatles.
They are all nice, but if I have to pick…the first image gets my vote
Greetings Andy! (from one to another).
I think it’s clear which design is at the top of the heap.
Thanks much for voting!
1st design works
Hi John! We so appreciate your input. A million thanks.
#1 design. Hey, you and yours have a great happy weekend and congratulations again!
It looks like Number One is pulling away from the pack…. Thank you, Carolyn!
Thanks for the congratulations! That little boy, who was born early morning on July 1st, is doing fantastically!
Neal Smith – Alice Cooper Group. With Dennis Dunaway on bass, one of the best rhythm sections in rock.
No argument here.
I still have that Kiss comic.
I (Andy) know two people personally who have their original copies.
The KISS Army is profoundly dedicated. How do you not love that?
Tshirt number one has my vote.
Thank you, Lisa! VERY MUCH. We love hearing from you.
Top one wins for me its got the groove that said buy me now…Most of the people I really like in music I would have six to seven or eight of their cd’s anyway…. I don’t ever have a burning desire to have all of their collection sorry to say…Sometimes it can become same old sound over again….
We mark another one for T-Shirt Number One…
I (Andy) appreciate your thinking, Ellen. As soon as we believe we are sounding too repetitive, Elm Treason is OUT.
Good rule of thumb…
First shirt is great…
Looks like a winner
Appreciate the vote. Shirt One is getting a fair amount of love, no doubt.
Great choices there, Vincent.
Fantastic music !!
I (Andy) dig it much.
Funny but during live performances the drummer will get me but does not seem to have same effectwhile just listening? So the beginning of the song I nealy lost you by Screaming Trees and the drums at beginning of Cryptonite by threee doors down caught me. A s of right now I must own all that Elm Treason has to offer! I already own all Zeppelin, INXS, all Rolling Stones and own all that Stephen Stanely and Ron, not Ronnie, Hawkins have to offer whether together or soloor in various band configurations! Just to be further a P,I.T.A, could send descriptions of t hirts in an e mail as I most definately want one and would like to weigh in on the presentation. Either way I must have more than just 3 Elm Treason Tshirts LOL
Gil Moore from TRiumph and of course Neil Peart and it looks like t shirt no.1 is getting a lot of votes…so really no need to decribe and send
Hi Shelley! Shirt Number One is getting some huge support, very true. We shall see…
Wow. You included us among those powerhouses?
I (Andy) am literally flabbergasted. Thank you, Shelley.
I have to admire your pick of The Rolling Stones. Not because they aren’t an all-time great band.
But their catalog is so vast spanning over 50 years that even the most ardent Stones’ fans often don’t have them all. I have a lot of respect for that.
The only artist I can confidently say I have all of their recordings, without delving into the thousands of records and CDs in our basement and doing some research, is the Celtic New Age duo Secret Garden.
I vote for the first tshirt design.
Thanks for the vote.
And thanks for your input. I love how unique your selection is. Most sincerely.
T shirt #3
Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks,SRC, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Small Faces, Humble Pie, The Frost (Dick Wagner Group), Bevis Frond,
Deep Purple, the Who, the Yardbirds, Cream, Allman Brothers and the list goes on and on.
Thanks for the t-shirt vote! Number three gets another one!
An amazing – and comprehensive – list. Thank you, man.
I do have that Kiss comic book. It would never have been published once AIDS became known.
Almost an absolute certainty on that!
Really appreciate the comment!
Shirt number 3 is my favorite.
Thank you so much, Marcia! We are tallying!
I (Andy), too, dig shirt number three a lot. 🙂
My favorite drummer is Paul Ducette from Matchbox 20. He doesn’t always play drums but they do a song he blew me away on. He is smaller in stature to Rob Thomas but when he plays in this song he blows people away and his whole body is in a zone. Best I have ever seen.
