Complaining is a reoccuring trend in the youth today. I know, im 22 myself, so im hardly a wealth of experience.
Complaining is fine when there is something to complain about, but not when its not being able to use your faviourite brand of sticks. Its just sticks, man.
When I was first starting out, one of my sticks broke at the tip, so i taped it up, turned it round and kept going, because I was playing DRUMS! How awesome is that! I wish people could get back to that.
