one really odd fact about yourself? If I hear a tune, I can automatically write trippy lyrics to it. That's what years and years of 'The Doors' will get you. Ride the snake. ;)
how did you start drumming? I went to a "Winter Solstice" (a pretty good hardcore band) and I was 100% completely inspired.

Side Note:
First of all, I just wanted to thank whoever created this site (I'm the new guy, cut me some slack :D). For a while now, I've been looking for a decent drumming forum with minimal flaming and primarily beneficial tips and advice. Even though i'm new at drumming, i'm decent at computers - So i guess I can return the thanks by helping any of you in any way possible? Oh well, I tried. :)
