My father in-law does the exact same thing. Sweet fro' BTW.

Just noticed that we have 4 drummers from AZ posting in this thread. Anyone else thinkin' that I'm thinkin'? We should have our own Southwest meetup. Forger those eastcoasters and their Guru drums and those LA cats with their NAMM. We should all meet up for tacos and beer, maybe go drop in on Jim and his band's open mic night.

Here's a band I was in in 1991. The drums were a house kit I played on at the time, with 24" kicks and 13/14/18 toms. Also LM400 snares. We won a battle of the bands this day, if I remember correctly.

Some cool pictures being shared.

For whatever reason I have nothing on photo until about 1985 that I can find. That leaves about a 9 year gap from when it all began.

But before me, here's some of my Dad as a kid playing with some other family members around 1941 and in the army in the 1950's...
