Re: Your parents' attitude towards your drumming
As far as my parents were concerned, my mother was against my getting a kit whilst my father was all for it. Oddly enough, she got me my first set, when I was 15. It was a no-name children's kit that her friend was throwing out. It lasted roughly 3 months before my father allowed me to look for a used kit online. So I guess you could say in the end both my parents were all for it.
As for musicians in the family, my great uncle is a bassist and vocalist, and another great uncle is a drummer. Both of these men are in their 50s to 60s, and have been musicians their entire life.
But other than those two, my brother and I are the only other musicians in the family.
