Origin of user name? Being older than dirt and having played a number of different kits over the years I've come full circle and realize the vintage drum makers had it right all along. No more trends for me.
Your top 5 drummers? Russ Kunkel, Matt Chamberlain, Jim Keltner, Stevie DiStanislao, Neil Peart (lots more respect and love for a much longer list of drummers than these five)
Make of drumkit? Rescued many of the last Yamaha Recording Custom shells in Antique Sunburst from the Japanese factory before the series was discontinued
Make of cymbal? Switched to nearly all Istanbul Agops with a few vintage Sabians, two 80's Wuhan Chinese cymbals and a new Bosphorus 18" 18-hole crash

One really odd fact about yourself? My dad's side of the family are direct descendants from the Vikings: pillage and plunder sort of stuff
How did you start drumming? I watched the Beatles perform live on the Ed Sullivan show when I was 9 years old. Watching Ringo having fun rocking it out, I knew instantly I had to play the drums.
