one really odd fact about yourself: One day I asked my mom, "when the people make songs, how do they know what [notes] to play when?"
how did you start drumming: When I was 2, I would drag out all my mom's pots & pans and hit them with her different cooking utensils. I started concert band in 5th grade and learned about music notes. I got my first "real" drumset @ 13 and spent hours everyday trying to figure out how to play KISS songs on the set. Once I figured out the whole 1&3 / 2&4 thing, it was easy! Mom would sit on my bed and listen as I played for hours. God bless her.
