Earliest I can muster; 1993 senior yearbook picture.


That's right...I designed Neil Peart's present kit....telepathically.....into the future.

You don't need to be that old to upload some pics from the memory lane :)

Here is my Dad in 1934:






Here I am in 1966:

First of all: Your dad looks cool as all!!!

Secondly: You were in a band called the Zeppelins in 1966? What did you do when Led Zep came around? You couldn't exactly go around with that name still, or could you?

Wouldn't be that one. That snare looks like white ceramic coating and it doesn't have a center bead.

Loving this thread so much. I love old pictures of people, expecially of musicians.

Zikos, what year was that taken? Love the matching jackets, no joke.

Jim, I love that old pic of your dad. Did he live in Arizona in his heyday? Do you still play with trad grip?

Henry, I was looking through this thread with my fiance and we both agreed that you look like a young Jagger.

Yeah, we were The Zeppelins from about 1964 to 1968. Yes when Led Zeppelin came out our band name became worthless..........

My Dad lived in Oakland, Ca. until 1944. Then he moved to Hollywood, Ca. for the drumming career opportunities. He was in big bands, movies and TV shows.

Yes, I have always played traditional grip. Still do. But I wish I had learned matched grip.

Oldest picture I have, it's from the very early 80's... a Tama Imperialstar with double bass drums, my first "expensive" kit, I think I was 22 or 23 years old.

Yep...looks like he's definitely got the moves like Jagger! And nice "guns" Henri! :)

1971 :)



Holy crap. I just noticed that I STILL use tape to repair broken sticks.
The tape is probably the only thing in that photo that you should still have...except the drums of course.

Love the hair... The sweater really gives away the decade too.
