Ripped jeans? Check! Studded belt? Check! Twin Bass Drum Kit? Check! Drumsticks tucked in hi tops? Check! MULLET? CHECK!!!

Yes, I'm a rock drummer!

This was me, photo taken circa late 1989 or early 1990. Today not much remains (the kit was a loaner, the jeans eventually fell apart, the drumsticks were most likely broken while rocking out, and the mullet is but a distant memory) but I still enjoy drumming. And while I am the first to admit I am a competent drummer and have never been a brilliant drummer, I have taught others how to play drums, and after showing them the basics and pointing them in the right direction, I'm not ashamed to say that within a few years they can wipe the floor with me when it comes to drumming skills.

Soon I'll be sharing those lessons on here, and I look forward to a whole new generation of drumming enthusiasts who will learn and then excel, and I'll be content in the knowledge that I was there as a start point on their musical journey.
