Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Creativity lives in your head not the number of pieces that make up your kit. Once you think of what to play you need to have the technique to play what you're mind has created.

Re: Are you influenced by what your favorite drummers endorse?

Re: " You can only play what you have lived"

IMO you can play "it" with more "feeling and authenticity" if you've live it.
So for me it lies somewhere between true or false.
