How did you start drumming? My older brother brought home a Pearl 4-piece when I was 7. Little bro (righty) would play them whenever big bro (lefty) wasn't home. No problem, switch a few things around... but then big sis told big bro about little bro, and big bro solved the problem by buying a 13 piece Tama kit...little bro had to learn to play backwards. Learnt a lot from big bro though, and all the music he listned to. Never taken any lessons, it was pointless with a reversed kit, and my parents weren't about to shell out more money!

Real Name? Dranoel Cram
Age? 17
How Long Been Playing? 4 years

Make of drumkit? Tama
Make of cymbals? Zildjian and Paiste
Where do you practice? In my room, on 2 pads
Are you in a band? Yeah, 4 bands, one called 'chode', one called 'quite the whore', one called 'shotgun parrot', and one 'the supergroup'
Covers or originals? Both, leaning heavier to the originals nowadays

One really odd fact about yourself? The bassist in our band ('chode'), and I, swap roles all the time.
How did you start drumming? By being blown away by Travis Barker, then emulating his parts (with what my parents thought to be surprising success) with my bare hands on *any* flat surface. I am famous (notorious?) in my school for being an exponent of the art of 'table drumming'.
