Hey to all :)

I'm Blackfyre, I live in the UK.

I took up drums in January 2004 when my band's drummer walked out, I'm completely self taught as a result.

Influences include: Daniel / Adrian Erlandsson, Peter Wildoer, Joey Jordison, Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, "Moose" Thomas, Tommy Portimo, Tommy Lee (we share the same birthday too) and probably a thousand others I can't think of right now.

Any other questions, do feel free to drop me a line.
