Default Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?

Always loved music and started on guitar at 8. Every Little Thing She Does is Magic by Stewart Copeland changed me forever. It's off the album Ghost In The Machine which is still a favourite album of mine and got me into reggae.
I couldn't get over the sound of the Copeland snare and all his crisp brilliant playing, HH's etc. After a few weeks of his sound going 'round my brain I gave in and began the awful reality of learning to hold my sticks properly.

A bit older now and happy just to groove and study Gadd the Godfather, Sly Dunbar, Jeff Porcaro, Andy Newmark. All a bit less rushed these days, feels good.

Luv yis, thanks for all the info in this forum, you're a grand bunch.
