Default Re: If you were bankrupt, starving and cold, could YOU burn your kit to keep you alive?

This is slightly preposterous,but I'll play.If for some reason the only wood I had was a set of drums,and I had to burn it to avoid freezing to death...I know I would certainly burn them.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy,I had no power for 11 days.That means no heat either,so I had to burn wood to stay warm.I knew I would do anything I had to do to stay alive.

When faced with a real survival situation,most people would do the same I think.

I realize this seems like test of how much you love your instrument,but you can always GET ANOTHER SET OF DRUMS.Bang on tin cans,plastic buckets...anything.But you can't play them if you're dead.

I love my drums too,but if it comes down to breathing or playing....breathing wins by a long shot.Besides......there's a lot more to life than drums.
