Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?
my best friends older brother was in a band . he built a room in the cellar to practice in. he had a white pearl ludwig set, and his sticks were painted like a candy cane. at the time the peppermint twist was popular. he started giving lessons for $2 an hour. i dropped playing trumpet like a bad habit and took lessons . i stopped playing around '69-'70 but always kept drumming in the back of my mind. in feb. 2005 i bought my own set of ludwigs and started up again. it is so incredible!!!!!!!!! it's religion!
