Default Hello from the Ca Central Valley!

Hey all, Jim here, Living in Patterson, Ca., grew up in Richmond, Ca
I have been lurking around for about 2 years, so I figure its time to post an intro.
Started playing in 1988 at the age of 12. Lots of local, Famouse influences: Steve Smith, Denny Carmassi, Tony Williams, Prairie Prince....and on and on.

First kit was a Pearl international series, with Zildjian Schimitar Cymbals. Played constantly for about 8 years, then it died off a little when I started working. Work and Women got in the way for a few years, and the drums went into the Rafters. Bought a new Thumper Custom kit in late 2001, and re connected with some old Bandmates and did some Gigs in The SF Bay Area for a while. Not playing as much as I should/want to these days, Family takes most of my time now, and the Music scene is nothing in the Valley, Like It was in the Bay Area. Most of the Time I spent here previousely, was spent watching the variouse videos.
