How did you start drumming? Originally started playing back in the late 70's when punk hit (anyone could be in a band back then - no musical ability necessary!), but due to work & family commitments I gave up playing in the early 80's. Got back into it in 2010 when the old band decided to have a 33 year (?!) reunion gig. Got the bug for it again & now play in 2 bands.
