Re: the "how" thread
Started playing drums at 10 years old.
First band was with friends from school in 1984 or thereabouts.
First pro band was a cover band in 1989.. doing Skid Row, Motley Crue covers.
Biggest inspirations: John Bonham, Ian Paice, Phill Rudd, Carmine Appice, Eric Singer, Eric Carr.
Whats kept me going for so long: Rick Allen... the guy is amazing to bounce back from a car accident like he did and emerge as the drummer as he has.. it has really given me the spirit that anything is possible.
