how did you start drumming? I saw George Thorogood & The Destroyers with Clarence Clemons on saxophone. I decided sax was super cool, so I started playing in the school band. The saxophones all sat up front while the percussionists were in the back goofing off and having fun. Well..."Hot Cross Buns" on sax wasn't nearly Clarence Clemons cool, so I opted for fun and switched to percussion. A great decision on my part. ;)
