real name? Corey (Sometimes I lie and say Barnabas, it just sounds so cool.)
age? 17
how long been playing? Since 5th grade, altough, I really didnt start to get "Serious" about it until a year or so ago.
origin of user name? Something I came up with when I was really bored. A copy off of "Sebulba's Love child" who is a user on a completely unrelated forum.
top 5 drummers? Buddy Rich, Steve Gadd, Thomas Lang, Jojo Mayer, Louie Bellson (Only 5? :( )
make of drumkit? In the works, vintage Slingerland snare drum & vintage 26" Remo marching bass. I'll probably continue to add pieces to it as I find them for years.
make of cymbal? So far only a pair of Meinl MCS hi-hats.
where do you practice? In my basement (The coolest basement ever.) and at school when my director isn't being an ass.
are you in a band/s? No
covers or originals?
what style of music? I like to play jazz/old school big-band more than anything
favourite take out food? How much time do you have? I like everything and am known for eating mass qauntities of many styles.
P.S. I'm a big fan of the English spelling
country? USA
one really odd fact about yourself? I talk in a really deep voice and people are afriad to talk to me on the phone. That combined with me shaving my head at one point, having a sick sense of humor, and reading alot about WWII lead to the rumor that I am in fact a practicing Nazi. (Completely False)
how did you start drumming? 5th grade, thought it would be fun. I pretty much only played concert crash cymbals and other auxillary stuff until about 9th grade. Then I started getting into rudiments and drum-kit. I'm know as the crash cymbal master, but would like to be known for my other meager percussion skills.

************************************************

i'm emily holland, a 13 year old girl with alot of drumming-attitude and i got into drumming by listening to some music, solos and grooves of drumming played by fantastic drummers. [bonham, portnoy, gadd, chad smith] and i just thought...wow...i want to do that and it took my parents along time to realise that i was being serious!
i have been playing for nearly 2 years now and i'm already: forming a band, playing with Halesowen junior wind and brass band [jazz etc] playing for D.P.A and having lessons there. [dudley perforimg arts]. i don't play drums at my school though.
my kit is a cannon adder with sabian b8 cymbals and the colour of my kit is blue.
i have passed my grade 2 guildhall exam with a merit and i just had my grade 3 exam results which are a high merit. but i did break my right erist before my grade 3 exam so i had 6 weeks without practice and i still got a high merit.

Welcome pinky. If you get that "orphanage world tour" going you will probably attain not only great status as a humanitarian, but most likely every other goal you have on that list will come to you in short order.
