Default Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?

I would say for me it was Bonham. When I was a kid way back in the 70's I remember listening to my brother's Led Zeppelin records and I was drawn to the big boomy sound of his drums. The tracks that did it for me were "When The Levee Breaks" and "Rock'n Roll". When I heard the intro to "Levee" and the solo at the end of "Rock'n Roll" I knew right then and there that I wanted to be a drummer. Not long after that I got my first kit, and tried to play along with those Led Zep records. After a short period of time I was playing along with a few songs and I took off from there. Thirty one years later I am still going strong and most importantly still learning and progressing. To this day I still play along with Led Zep and other music that has inspired me over the years. But the big event in my drumming years was seeing Buddy Rich in person when I was about 13 years old. That night changed my life. I have never seen anything like that before and probably never will.
