One really odd fact about yourself? I have lived longer in Japan than I have in my own country of NZ, and I survived the 9.2 Japan quake last year. (thats 2 facts...)
How did you start drumming? Chopsticks and cushions in the livingroom listening to my parents albums. I have no idea why the urge to play percussion came so naturally - my father and grandfather played drums at some point in their lives - but briefly. My Dad played swing and Jazz during his teens, but gave up when he joined the Navy,
