Like I said. Hoarder...
Where do you practice?
Tables and knees when at home. My rehearsal spot is in the neighbouring town, 30 mins. drive from where I live.
Are you in a band?
If you would call a duo a band. Me and a long time guitarist friend have played in various constellations together since forever. Right now there's just the two of us but where looking for personel.
Do you play covers or originals?
Mostly our own stuff but of course, striking up a great cover every now and then is great fun.
What style of music?
Heavy metal, to not get too detailed or sub genre specific.
Favourite take out food?
Indian, but a home cooked meal is hard to beat!
What country do you live in?
One really odd fact about yourself?
What an odd question. Some say I resemble Gary Busey. Is that a compliment?
How did you start drumming?
First time I saw a drum kit was when my late dad took me to his job. He was an arts teacher at a school and he showed me the music class room. And there it was, in all its might, the drum kit! I was hooked from second one. I must have been about five yo, so I started beating on the livingroom sofa with butter knives to my mom's ABBA records!
I was soon presented with my first pair of sticks but it took years before I got a set.
One more thing that really made me choose drums instead of guitar was that I thought that Peter Criss had the coolest looking make-up of Kiss...
