Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!
Real name? Bob Davis
How long have you been playing? 27 years
Origin of user name? I'm Bob. STX is the airport code for where I live - St Croix, in the US Virgin Islands
Your top 5 drummers? In no particular order: Neil Peart, Steve Smith, Manu Katche, Carter Beauford, Joe Morello
Make of drumkit? Working on building my own. In the meantime, I'm playing a borrowed kit.
Make of cymbal? Any drummer not getting paid to endorse a make who insists on one make is foolishly restricting his potential voices. In the past, before I matured into someone who realizes that "Ford vs. Chevy" arguments are puerile, I was pretty loyal to Paiste. But then I wised up. I'll play what sounds best, and I couldn't care less who made it.
Where do you practice? Spare bedroom, to my wife's dismay.
Are you in a band? Yes. Kind of. ;)
Do you play covers or originals? Mix.
What style of music? You could call it "roots rock".
Favourite take out food? Indian.
What country do you live in? US Virgin Islands.
One really odd fact about yourself? I've had seven careers, if you count music, in my short life. From soldiering to brewing craft beer to running my own business.
How did you start drumming? Clarinet is infinitely less cool than drums. Krupa > Goodman! :D
