Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

It's been my drumming mantra ever since I was tutored in classical percussion (timpani, tubular bells) from the age of 10. My tutor (a beautiful woman in her 70's, 1st percussionist, Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra) gave me this one piece of advise when she gave me my last lesson & brought a kit along for the very first time. I was 15. She blew me away with her power & presence on the kit. A frail elderly woman playing Bonham riffs with such power & authority. Her last statement to me was "and remember, always keep it simple".

I've played by that mantra ever since as I believe the simple approach is almost always best for the song.
