One really odd fact about yourself?
I tend to look at the "reality" side of things. Too much, most of the time.

How did you start drumming?
My Dad started teaching me to play Snare Drum. He played through high school. Just before Christmas 1965, my parents bought a drum set for me for my Christmas present. A "cheap" Winston brand kit with a Bass Drum, one Mounted Tom, Snare, one Cymbal, and a Hi-Hat. Dad later purchased a Slingerland Floor Tom and a 20"Paiste Formula 602 Ride to complete my first "outfit". BTW, I have used the Paiste ride cymbal that Dad bought for me, in every performance to date.
