Default Re: Did Your Parents Disaprove.

My parents, particularly Dad, were not impressed. I was supposed to learn piano and I now I regret knocking back piano lessons; it would have proved very handy for my drumming :)

PFOG, it always amazes me when people say their parents were highly supportive of their drumming. After I'd been playing for 10 years they finally came to a gig and then they were better about it. I think it surprised them to see people actually enjoying my playing - in stark contrast to them and my neighbours.

The poor buggers really paid their dues with me endlessly drumming along with Highway Star (despite sexist lyrics). We drummers sure incur a helluva karmic debt!
