how did you start drumming? I saw Nirvana on TV at the 1992 MTV music video awards playing 'Lithium' and watched Dave Grohl, all the while thinking "Oh My God I know what I want to do with my life.." A while later my older brother started a band and needed a drummer, and after much begging and pestering they let me join even though i'd never played drums in my life. The singer used some of his student loan to buy a beat-up 7th or 8th hand Ludwig kit for 100, we set up in our garage and they said "ok, we've got ten songs and our first gig is in three weeks, get learning.."
