If so, sorry.
Yes, that's me. It's my (now retired) Spaun maple kit. Ride is a 24" Amedia Vigor. Recorded on a Zoom Q3 Handycam.

Interesting Nutha. I was most surprised at such a big number. By my rough calculation, that's 130 billion pounds the UK earns from music. Seems way high to me, but I agree, even if the truth is less by a factor of 10, the level of support provided for music, considering only it's economic value, is pitiful.
