Default Re: Your parents' attitude towards your drumming

Great family story dmacc!

My folks supported my drumming although there were not any musicians in my family both my parents loved listening to music. My dad loved jazz and mom loved classical and anything Tom Jones! Strangely, it was my step dad who bought me my first set of drums. What is strange about it is he loathed musicians saying they were all hippie pot smoking flakes. He always went on and on how nothing good would come out of me being a musician....but he bought me the kit anyway and tolerated me "playing" in my room to records for hours on end. He turned out to be a mean SOB and my mom divorced him but I at least have to thank him for my first set of drums!
