One really odd fact about yourself?
How did you start drumming? Was in junior high and the school band put on an assembly. The drummer did a quick solo during "Wipeout" and I was hooked.
During the 80's I was in a "hair band" and played all the great local Hollywood clubs (The Whiskey a Go-Go, The Troubadour, The Roxy, Gazarri's) We were really popular...headlined shows with GnR, Warrant, Poison and actually almost got signed before we broke up.
Anyway...love the site and all the good information I get here. Been awhile since I played and see that alot has changed! :)
Oh...here's my new kit...
