Default Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?

When I was at school there were lots of bands but hardly any drummers. One guy used to get roped in to play drums for all of them. I thought then that he was a pretty good drummer and he might have gone far if he hadn't accidentally drowned aged 17. I once sat behind his kit and had a chance to play something. I might as well have been sitting at the controls of a 747 jet. Couldn't do a thing. I decided to wait almost 30 more years before getting lessons so that I can actually do something apart from sitting there looking at the drums. It'll be a long time before I can do anything like he used to but I'm making a start.
