Default Introduction

Hi all, greetings from Australia
.
Starting playing drums around 1970, stopped when I travelled overseas and then got married in 1977.

Took up drumming again in 2011 after the kids grew up and I took over one of their bedrooms as a "music room". Some guys in middle age crisis buy a 60's convertible and drive around with a bimbo, I bought a Basix brand glossy black double kit.

Slighty rusty, but if at a party and the drummer gets head head cut off or whatever I think I could fill in the seat....well get by anyway.

Was appraoached by AC/DC in early 70's to audition........they hated me.

Influences? Mitch Mitchell, Keith Moon, Ginger Baker,Jerry Nolan, Neil Smith, Louis Bellson and the best drum soloist ever....Gene Krupa!

Fantastic drum site and love surfing around here! Take care all......
