A little different, although I played and practiced all day everyday, I also seem to have a collection showing how I could never leave a drum intact and stock.
Here I am taking a set of early 70's Ludwigs and doing my version of Myron Grombachers kit.



I think this was a Birch Tama superstar


My Milestone kit getting Red, I think I painted this kit 7 times. My daughter looks pretty new here so 1987?



And my 1957 and 1963 Ludwig 22's becoming a matching pair, circa 1982-3?


Now I see why I hate sanding drums now. Been at it way too long. And I sported that Mullet a good long stretch.

If anyone cares to know how I looked a year ago, look at uniongoon, make him shorter and scrawnier, and add a beard and some chest hair. It's pretty eerie, actually.

Unfortunately, I got rid of the mullet, too. Horrible mistake.

That is pretty scrawny. I was about 130 pounds and 5'10".
I used to eats big meals 4-5 times a day and drink carb and protein shakes, and still couldn't gain weight, took me til 40 to break the 150 pound barrier.

Great picture Zickos :)

Now, I can't help thinking that Grea / Anon La Ply should have been the drummer of that band :):):)

I thought this pic hilarious. Circa 1975 (I was 20) going to a Halloween party. Made those ears out of papier-mache-everybody in my apartment complex kept borrowing them.

Not sure how old I was here but probably around 15 so 1987 or so. I was and still am a metalhead.
