Re: Your parent's attitude towards your drumming
always encouraged by mom
she plays piano, accordion , and sings ...and was always....I mean ALWAYS playing music in the house .
she would always buy me equipment, drive my bands to gigs as a kid , and tell my dad to leave me alone when the noise in the house was getting to him
my old man was a little different
he was a truck driver who worked from 5 AM to 7 PM every night and was not such a huge fan of the noise of me practicing or my bands rehearsing in the basement .
he was an old school, hard working, hard drinking Italian.
that being said...I believe if he was here today he would be proud of the living that I make doing what I love .
to this day mom ....well into her 70s ....is as supportive as she has ever been.....still shows up to gigs when they are close to her .
I actually keep a drum kit set up over at her house because she loves to hear me play drums .....she says it relaxes her ....so when I go over sometimes I mess around on the tubs for a bit
