Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?
I started playing when I was 10 years old in the school band. I wanted to play the saxaphone like everyone else because it was 'cool' - go figure. I was actually pretty pissed off when I was told I would be playing the drums but decided to give it a go anyway. I was a pretty quick learner and was one of the best musicians in the band. After 3 years I got tired of playing boring concert band songs and gave it away.
When I moved to uni I decided to take it up again so I could jam with my mates and stuff and I've been playing for a year now. Nowadays, the thing that makes me want to play the drums more than anything is The Mars Volta - their drummer Jon Theodore is awesome, I just love the way he plays, and hopefully one day soon I'll play like that.
