Re: What makes an adorable drummer?

Yeah well, one time I tried bobbing my head and playing.

Re: Doing what comes naturally

I agree 100% with WhoIsTony.
I've been "Moellering" for at least 60 years.

Re: Day to day difference in sound?

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Yes, so true. We don’t have body language, voice inflection and person to person interaction here on the internet.

Re: Do you keep your cardboard boxes?
