Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?
My story is a bit weird... My parents (especially my mother) always noticed I had a sense of rhythm... When I was 4 years old, I had this crush on a girl when I was on vacation in france, and I grabbed a bucket and two wooden spoons and gave her a show.
It never worked out.
Anyway, when I was 10 years old, my brother (who played the trumpet) brought to my parents attention that the orchestra in which he played was searching for drummers. And I decided I'd help them out. Pretty weird, huh? you'd expect someone to be totally wild about playing drums, but I just wanted to help out. Fortunately I got along very well with both the teacher and the practise pad and snare drum that I used for more than a year, until I got my first kit (a Thunder Fusion kit).
