One really odd fact about yourself? -- I'm really very twitchy by nature, it really takes me a lot to not move some appendage at some point. I figured learning to drum would help with that. I've been playing guitar for nearly 30 years now and have always had a secret romance with drums and drummers and I just thought 38 may not be too old to start.
How did you start drumming? -- It's almost a mid-life crisis story, instead of going out and buying the Porsche or the $5000 PRS I decided to seek out a local teacher and get some lessons going.
