Hi there! I've been around for a long time, just never here :^). I've played everything from Christian rock, touring Europe and Africa with Far Beyond Silence based out of Germany playing hand percussion, Drum and Bugle core and marching band stuff, to hard rock and blues. I've been rehearsing with some friends for a year now and we're getting ready to break out with Kinda Brutal within the next month or so in Denver Colorado.

Real name? David Sechler
Age? 49
How long have you been playing? Since I was 4 (You do the math)
Origin of user name? I'm a Microsoft Sr. Systems Engineer.
Your top 5 drummers? John Bonham, Carmine Appice, Mitch Mitchell, Vinnie Colaiuta, Jonathan Joseph

One really odd fact about yourself? Rare Blood Disorder that only 2% of caucasians get (only caucasians can even get it)
How did you start drumming? Parents bought me a Dennis the Mennis drum kit back in the days when Tarzan was on TV in black and white. I would work on mimicking the drums from the jungle tribes until one day, one of those jungle dudes started playing a drum by dancing on it.... my little kit didn't fare so well from my trying to do that LOL

I'll get some picks and video's up on here shortly.

David

Hi gang,

I've looked at threads on this site for so long, I figured it was time to join. I'm in a band, (switched to all originals), and we are starting to get rolling again. I mostly love all drums, no matter what emblem is on the shells. It seems to me it's a tough choice when picking a new set, because ALL the drum companies are offering good/great quality at pretty decent prices nowadays. I had Ludwigs, DW's, Tama's and Pearl's, and presently have a Yamaha live Custom, DrumCraft maple, and a Mapex Saturn that I never got to play yet. It's still new, in the boxes.
I'm 44, and have been playing on and off since I was twelve. Life got in the way of things for a few years, but got back into it 6 years ago or so. Life will hopefully not get in the way again.

I apologize that I've been lurking for months, joined in Nov '14 and still lurked, and only yesterday realized that I offered up my first post on another thread.

Age? - 50
How long have you been playing? - in my youth ('73-'85), in the military ('85-'92), then a long hiatus and recently started again last year as I approach mid-life crisis. I always had sticks and a pad though...
Your top 5 drummers? - only 5?!? like anything, there's the old and then the new. The old stand-bys that we grow up on and then the ones who you never heard of but find them on you tube. I like watching and listening to anyone with rhythym

How did you start drumming? Musical family: clarinet, sax, oboe, trumpet, guitars, piano, voice...I had to be different tho with drums.

Still have my first 16 & 18 med-heavy crashes...
