My "new" wife of 24 years totally digs my drumming. She bought me a new kit for Christmas '04 & told me to "get it on". We've never looked back. Now 4 years & 4 drum sets later we have a studio in the basement & rock on like crazy. Who says being in your 50's ain't fun!
Sorry to hear about the first wife...holy crap! But that's SO awesome about your "new" wife. I'm glad you are getting to take part in your passion again, man!
