Well well well... here I go again...

Before I start, I'm going to introduce myself in a more casual way then everyone else. I don't like the idea of a standardized introduction layout. Apologies! :)

Anyway, I'm Anthony, 17, just out of school, male, born and bred in South Dublin, Ireland. Been drumming for about 10 months, and I can't get enough of it. I have a Roland Td-3kw compact series with Roland TD-3 brain module. I use Vater 7A's, great sticks in my opinion. Favourite style to play is jazz, then probably funk. I use music software also: Ableton Live 7, getting 8, Reason 4, Virtual DJ, getting Superior 2.

Oh, and I'm a very proud atheist who's always up for a friendly debate, only if it's welcomed of course...

Before I forget, I joined VDRUMS.COM, but I had my IP permanently banned, without warning, got being an atheist... turns out one of the mods was an extreme christian... I hope that there's none of that extremism here... and please don't let my username put you off... I won't bite...

Peace...

Once was known as Wild Bill, now it's more like mild Bill.
53 Y/O trying to hang on just a little while longer.
Quit drumming 18 years ago when my daughter was born.
Tried to get a kit like the old one, a Pearl MLX with Sabian cym. and Sonor snare.
WOW !! prices have really gone thru the roof !! Had to settle for a Gretsch Catalina Maple.
Just assembling the kit wore me out, now that's what I call old !!
Starting from scratch, it sucks but I am going to hang in there.
Got out the metronome and been putting in a couple hr. per day on drums and the pad. Don't want to p/o the neighbors too much.
Must be midlife crisis, back riding a Harley and beating on the drums, guess that I could be doing a lot worse things.

I also frequent a few other forums, UGW mostly, and some time at DML. And I have the great honor of being very involved with Drum Road Trip. Seems something I said started the whole damn thing or something.
But I digress, thank you for having me, now lets talk drums!
