At some point last year, the Modern Drummer Website crashed for a number of months. It actually seemed like the site was down for a million billion years, but it was probably not that long. When the site finally made a come back, most of the archived Drummer Update articles had either mysteriously “gone missing” or had moved to new and unknown URLs. Exciting!
I am only just now finding the time to rebuild my Modern Drummer website archive by meticulously tracking down each article via Google and re-entering the correct URL, where available. I’m about half way through the sludge right now. Soon all — or maybe most — of those links will once again lead to actual articles! It’s not a very pretty job, but who else is going to do that for you?
