As to that post, I wasn't directing it toward you, it was more of a general comment (I didn't notice who posted those hours).
The meaning of life for me is to make it big in the band I'm in (www.ludavico.com
). Who knows if we will, who knows how far, but its a very enticing personal goal for me. I'd love to see the world through a band, seeing the sights and playing to new and foreign fans. Muse and Incubus are a huge inspiration on that front.
As far as drumming is concerned, I guess I'm a little like Dom Howard in my approach. I like to be solid and capable of playing and creating in the genres I like, but I don't require myself to be a virtuoso or a "drum legend". That's not my goal in drumming. My goal in drumming is to play music, and have heaps of fun in the process and share the music with people.
