Re: the "how" thread
Music- Music didn't really get me into drums, it came later on. It was just drummers and drumming, seeing them. Playing any style. I was just like "WOW, that's awesome. Someday that'll be me".
Drummer- My drum teacher of course. Out of all of the big ones though, definatly Gadd, Bonham, or Mitch Mitchell.
Person- Both of my parents and my unbelievable drum teacher.
Style- All of them. I don't listen to all styles on a regular basis, but they're fun as hell to play.
Inspirations- My drum teacher Jeff Christmas for one. People like Bonham, Mitch Mitchell, Elvin Jones, Steve Gadd, Buddy, and Cobham really inpired me to dig in and play my best.
If the sun refuse to shine, I don't mind.
