Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!
How long have you been playing?
18 years but with a 6 year gap.
Your top 5 drummers?
Gotta be Buddy Rich, Keith Moon, John Bonham, Nick Mason and Chad Smith.
Make of drumkit?
I have a Mapex V series but I'm looking to upgrade to a Ludwig kit soon and get a Roland Electronic kit for practicing in the house.
Make of cymbal?
Sabian Pro Sonics, a dark Stagg crash cymbal.
Where do you practice?
I practice my rudiments on a pad, the only time I get to play on a kit at the present moment is in rehearsal studios, can't play the Mapex in the house.
Are you in a band?
Not presently but I used to be in a blues covers band and a heavy rock band that did Sabbathy stuff. Love Sabbath but that's the heaviest stuff that I'm into - the band wanted to be more like Pantera so I left.
Do you play covers or originals?
I can play mainly blues covers. Really enjoy playing Floyd stuff. I like playing original stuff with bands too.
What style of music?
Heavy R&B drummer. Also like a mixture of funk.
Favourite take out food?
Like authentic indian curries with lentils and vegetables.
What country do you live in?
One really odd fact about yourself?
I hold a Master of Arts degree in Screenwriting.
How did you start drumming?
My dad was a huge fan of Frank Sinatra and on one of the videos Buddy Rich joined Frank Sinatra. From then on I knew I wanted to play the drums, it further developed with music lessons at school, then I discovered The Who and Keith Moon.
Pleasure to be on the forum.
