Default Re: Another new (to the site) old guy(55...is that old??)

I'm new here and 57 years old. It's great to be this age for me because I play for the enjoyment of drumming and not trying to be "somebody". I started at age 12 when my clarinet was left on my chair too much and our band teacher said "You might as well be a drummer, since you spend so much time playing with the drums".
I'm lucky to have a background in a wide variety of music styles and after not playing fo the last 15 years I'm back playing at church with a bunch of youngsters and having fun. I play Roland V drums at church and practice on a 5 piece set of Ego drums that belong to the church. I have quite a bit of vintage drum stuff in varying condition but would like to restore my early 70's Slingerland 5 piece kit that I got at Weaver Music in Michigan brand new. They are PURPLE!
I have them apart and will get them back together a little at a time as I find parts and pieces.
Old? Body yes, brain? No!
