One really odd fact about yourself?
Don't know if it's odd, but drums is the instrument I've spent the least amount of time learning, but it's the one I find myself progressing faster on. I've played guitar for 10 years, piano for 7 and various kinds of brass instruments for 9 years.

How did you start drumming?
Drumming was my first love when I was a little kid, and I had a drumkit for a couple of years back then. However, I never got anywhere, so I picked up the guitar instead (and god quite good at it too). But about three years ago, my roommate at the time got an electric kit, which I suddenly found myself spending a lot of time on. I bought my own e-kit 18 months ago, and I sold that in march this year to get my Mapex kit. I'm never quitting again!
