Write and record in newly built home studio -Originals only. I believe life's too short to spend it playing covers. IMO, the difference between artist and musician is the ability to create vs. playing what is created by others.
Play various styles depending on the song we're writing.Play guitar,Bass and record with ProTools.
Drive '03 Corvette and love to invent/create/improve on ideas at home and work.
Got start in Drum Corps. here in the Great Northwest. Realize from seeing all the drummers here between 14 and 24,just how many lose the passion somewhere along the way before reaching my age.

Re: INTRODUCTIONS - Please use this thread to introduce yourself

Name: Dusty
Age: 21
Years Playing: 8
Inspirations: Charlie Watts, Brooks Wackerman, Longineu Parsons III and many more.
Reason Behind Screen Name: My main band "On This Day"

My style of playing is a bit "unorthadox" because I try to combine the technique of all my favorite drummers. I played traditional grip for the longest time due to my stint in the marching band while I was in Junior High and High School. 'Till this day my snare drum tilts away from me, instead of level, or toward me. I'm a really straight forward guy, and I love to learn and talk shop.
