Re: What got you started playing drums?
For me, it was 2 very distinct songs...I remember being a kid and playing "Love Hurts" by Nazareth on my Radio Shack cassette player (!), and just rewinding the drum fill that leads into the solo, listening to that for hours. Being the 70s, most drum sounds just didnt grab you, at least they didnt to me - I had never heard such a big drum sound before....
The 2nd, and what led me to begging my parents for a kit, was the first time I heard "I Love It Loud" by KISS. Again, big drum sound, and I knew I wanted to do that.
