I believe this was the first song I played with other "musicians", probably sounded like your phonetics... Smoke on the Water?

For me it was "New York groove" by ace frehley of all things.

No way I can remember the first song but there's about a 90% chance it was either a KISS song or something by black sabbath.

I started playing a snare drum my 8th grade year, and my freshman year in high school was my first time ever behind a drumset. I was hanging out after school and the basketball pep band was screwing around and I was the only drummer in sight, so they had me try and play Spinning Wheel. It was a glorious failure.

I have no idea. Probably something by blink 182/ greenday. I know the first thing I played live was complicated by avril lavine. I sat in with my dads band at a new years gig with my sister doing vocals. I've always thought that was a cool first gig

Really thinking hard about what it might have been. I think it was
"The Actor' by the Moody Blues.

Killer by Cozy Powell..... which was rather difficult being 6 years old without a double pedal. I still love that song to this day :)

I was fascinated with this fact and promptly sat down at the kit and practiced the song over and over until I learned it note for note....with the original kit.

Surprisingly, just for kicks, I looked it up on Youtube (not expecting anything) only to find THIS!!!

I swear, the internet has EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
no lie. that has to be the most amazing story i've ever heard. and to find a copy of it on youtube in mint condition no less.

you win. any idea where the kid is now ? the drummer from the recording i mean.

and for myself, "Bang A Gong (Get It On) " by T Rex/ Power Station

Jazz man----I have no idea. That was 42 years ago! I think it was a pretty small group (The Doorknobs). Nothing shows up on the Web.....except that 45!!!

I'll tell ya though, I REALLY wish I never would've sold that 4 piece Gretsch. It was a round badge kit, all maple. I had NO idea what a quality set that was back then. ARGH!!!

Balcony Rock, on Dave Brubeck's "Jazz Goes To College" album circa 1956. I was 13 and thought Joe Dodge was amazing.

I still do, even when comparing him to his successor, Joe Morello. Talk about less is more!

I believe it was Rock Of Ages by Def Leppard as my drumset came with a cowbell.

It was Travelin Band by CCR. The hihat/snare part during the verses were the hardest thing for me to figure out at the time. I just wanted to play fast!
