Haven't got around to this yet, so I may as well.

Real Name: Conor
Age: 16
How long been playing: I believe I sat behind a drum kit for the first time about 4-5 months back...haven't since.
Origin of user name: Long story, though the shorthand version would be that I used to go by the name of "Snake", this was too generic and after a few bannings a certain websites, I returned under different names, this one stuck, and I liked it.
Top 5 drummers: Not too sure. Travis Smith, Mike Portnoy, Chris Adler (here's where I start to forget names and just list bands), Machine Head, Killswitch Engage.
Make of drumkit: N/A
Make of cymbal: N/A
Where do you practice: In my mind.
Are you in a band/s: No.
Covers or originals: As for listening, I prefer originals though I like a few covers.
What style of music: All my favourite bands are metal/metalcore, but I'm *fairly* varied, I listen to power/death metal and prog rock, used to be a huge rap fan too.
Favourite take out food: Not much into take aways.
Country: England.
One really odd fact about yourself: Hmmm? If someone decides to take a jab at me, most of the time I escalate the joke even further till they regret saying it.
How did you start drumming: Haven't 'started' perse. Though I got interested once my taste in music started to change.

That should about do for anyone who cares.

Default Re: INTRODUCTIONS - Please use this thread to introduce yourself

I've been posting for a few weeks now but I don't think I ever introduced myself properly-

I live in New York City and started playing drums a little over 30 years ago but I haven't actually played for 30+ years.
Went at it pretty good for about 12 years or so and then got fed up with all the crap that goes with being in a band so I stopped for about 15 years.
Got back into a band around 2000 and that lasted maybe one year and aside from blues jams I haven't done much playing since.

Self-taught but I owe a debt of gratitude to all the drummers I listened to and saw perform.
Always played traditional grip. Don't read music. I like to think I was blessed with good ears which made up for any lack of formal training. I just played what I felt.

the best kit I had was a 9 piece copper finish Slingerland kit, partially pictured here-
http://www.electriceyes.us/nel_sinful635.html

favorite style of music to play was hard rock. you can get a taste of my style thru the years here-
http://www.electriceyes.us/mp3.html

I'm a huge fusion fan and have seen some of the best drummers in the world perform, including The Master, Buddy Rich.

early influences were Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, ELP, Grand Funk, etc

I can't single out one drummer as a favorite, I find that virtually impossible but here are some of my favorites-
Buddy Rich, Dennis Chambers, Dave Weckl, Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, Steve Gadd, Dennis Bradford, Joe Franco, Lenny White, Leonard Haze,
John Bonham, Mick Tucker, Ian Paice, Simon Phillips, Jeff Porcaro, Bill Bruford, Mitch Mitchell, Rod Morgenstein, Tom Breicthlein, Billy Cobham,
Munetaka Higuchi (Loudness), Stefan Kaufman, Akira Jimbo, Steve Smith, etc

I'm also a bit of a guitar fanatic and some of my faves include-
Gary Moore, Jimi Hendrix. Robben Ford, Ritchie Blackmore, Steve Morse, Vinnie Moore,
Akira Takasaki, Wolf Hoffmann, Stevie Salas, etc

I like to listen to rock, jazz, fusion, some smooth jazz and blues mainly. I have no taste for rap/hip hop because musically there's nothing there for me.

I hate drum machines with an absolute passion but having said that I think they are OK for someone who uses them to help them compose.
I have a CD by a fairly well known and quite talented guitarist who I won't name who uses a drum machine to record his version of Rush's La Villa Stangiato.
I find that ridiculous and totally inexcusable. This guy has recorded with Dennis Chambers so I don't get it.

I have around 2000 store bought CD's in my collection along with about 1000 vinyl albums

Aside from drums and music my other passions are photography and computers.

I love going to concerts and have seen quite a few bands in my time. Check my MySpace blog
for a list of some of them. Supporting live music is crucial.

been happily married for 7 1/2 years and my wife and I met thru the Internet.
Yes, sometimes that does work out! : )
