Just one - but always with a spare handy...

Re: Ever see a 'big time' drummer before they were famous? Tell us about it!

Years ago (early 90's I guess) there was a regional metal band called 'Wrathchild America', later changed their name to 'Souls At Zero' -- they were incredible, sort of a progressive rock/metal kind...
