Default Re: Your parents' attitude towards your drumming

My mom never wanted a drum set in the house. It wasn't until after she passed away that I bought my first kit that I had been saving up for for years. I would drum from the time I got home from school until my dad got home from work and insisted I stop all the racket. My mom wasn't very musical, but my dad sang in the church choir. My parents never got to know of my huge passion for music, or to see me play shows. I'm sure they would have been supportive down the road, but they weren't for the formative years. Gawd, I wish they could have seen what I made of myself.
