listen to the red hot chili peppers when i was younger inspired me. I would always be hittin stuff to the beat of music (or at least trying). Then one day my mom asked me if i wanted to start an instrument and so it began.
you're about ten years older than i am caddywumpus, but my cousins were huge grunge fans that would always introduce me to things...i had long hair growing up, and they were like the only bands with longish hair that were being thrown my way, although i was learning about them later than they had been released into the world. Anyway, i figured that thats the kind of person i was, especially dave grohl, the way that he would thrash around...ah, it must have been amazing for you.Grunge. The music of the 80s is what I grew up listening to, but when the 90s came around, it was powerful for me. Still is...
that's hilarious!It sounds stupid, but it was probably the movie Wayne's World. You know the scene when Garth goes into the shop and does the drum solo? I was like "Wow, I wanna do that!"
Oh Yes!Funnily enough my mother. And Karen Carpenter!
Mother was a singer and loved jazz drummers. I picked up pencils very early on but it took a while to get a kit.
Karen Carpenter was loved by dad and I watched her drum on TV and that helped to inspire. Also Hal Blaine with the Tijuana brass and the Beach boys and of course the Carpenters. Both Hal Blaine and Earl Palmer are HUGE influences on me.
