      If you spell it R&B you will get a lot more hits. If you are interested in R&B drumming, check out Zorro.

          I tried all this sort of thing but the spec specifies urban R&B, I wouldnt know the difference between urban R&B and Classic R&B if it slapped me round the face! It has never intrested me I'm afraid, I find it far to repetative etc. Im much more of a Genesis/Floyd person . But thanks for your help I'll check out the links when I get home later.

              I'm sure you could...classic Rhythm and Blues is blues-based music, urban R&B is modern hip-hop type...even a Floyd Fan could tell them apart...

                          I think it's about to make a comeback as part of The Change We Need:

                          so don't ditch the flares and platforms just yet.

                              My band plays LOTS of different genres but we do play a fair amount of current Pop, which essentially means R&B based stuff. Let me know what specific info you're looking for.
