Welcome to the drum section of my site.
I'm always looking for fun musical adventures, currently involved in the
wonderful Planet Boogie,
newRHYTHMICS a tribute to eurythmics and some live gigs with Blazing Flame Quintet
I fell in love with music at a very early age, surrounded by all the latest 'hits' being played over and over by my older siblings,
each of which had differing ideas on what was cool at any one time...good schooling for me!
I had some serious ideas about being a guitarist, but my fingers don't bend that way so it was a natural progression
when I made my first drum kit in '73 out of biscuit tins etc.
My first 'real' drumkit. And I sure wish I still had this one. An early 60's Premier
in White Marine Pearl.
With a huge degree of excitement, I have bought an almost identical kit
which I am now restoring back to it's former glory :-)
And here it is hard at work in 2009 aged 44yrs. 52yrs now in 2017 and gets better with age.
I used this kit on recent album recordings in 2010, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and it's always
first to be considered for live shows too.
As well as the 60's Premier kit, I also have a late 70's
Yamaha kit in white for the odd wedding.
My current go to kit is a Mapex which I have in a variety of sizes
which gives me a kit range from hip gig style right through to double bass drum rock kit (well you just never know).

You never know what you might find in there!
