Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?
My brother got a kit for christmas, and I used to go upstairs and bang on it to scare away the monsters I was afraid of when I was alone. I was a wierd one.
Oddly enough, early rap like Run DMC was a big influence on my first beat, which I played between the floor tom and snare, because I couldn't reach the pedals yet. Then I got into Gun's 'N Roses, and it was all over.
