Well, big thanks to Stevis for initiating a thread that allows other drummers to communicate their history of percussion/music through a "how/where/why" discussion.
Well to begin with...

<b>Music</b>: ahhhhh, it's difficult to readily cite offhand, because i started jamming at a VERY VERY young age that before i knew it i was breaking sh*t around the house, stealing candlesticks or causing trouble in the kitchen and stuff. Then, i finally got a set, thank god, and much relief my parents felt.

<Drummer</b>: Again, difficult. ehhh, every frank zappa drummer. My dad (r.i.p.) was a HUGE Zappa-fanatic. awesome. Actually, come to remember. Back in the day (like 3 years ago) i was a big Vandals fan and discovered Josh Freese that way. He's (to this day) the only punk-drummer i consider to Have the skills most Un-punkrock drummers have. That's way cool.

<b>Person</b>: My dad, he allowed it. I didn't get yelled at for playing loudly in the basement for a couple of hours. fun stuff.

<b>Style</b>: I listen to music, period. So, style is everything i hear. I grasp anything i think could be played on drums. it usually works.

<b>Inspirations</b>: many many drummers. including those of the jazz-style. Those cats are always up to interesting and fun things. also, Myself. I usually don't care what instructors or drum-clinicians have to say as long as i know i feel great playing and don't let any ego get me barking til i am too tired to bite any longer.

With a name like "Plook" I find that hard to believe.

Started playing drums at 10 years old.
First band was with friends from school in 1984 or thereabouts.
First pro band was a cover band in 1989.. doing Skid Row, Motley Crue covers.
Biggest inspirations: John Bonham, Ian Paice, Phill Rudd, Carmine Appice, Eric Singer, Eric Carr.
Whats kept me going for so long: Rick Allen... the guy is amazing to bounce back from a car accident like he did and emerge as the drummer as he has.. it has really given me the spirit that anything is possible.

Hi Everyone,
I'm Richard and I too had started on the trumpet upon entering the 6th grade.
I soon went to the baritone and then the tuba.
I had friends that played drums in and out of the band, and that has always been my greatest desire to play. I've been playing drums full time now since the early 90's after dibbling with bass and other instruments over the years.
I love the sound of the drums, the emotions that you can make with them and the power that they have that make people move....
Drummers are the foundation of any group or band. The spirited time keepers.....

Plus, is there anything better than drums....? LOL

When I was 11 I started playing because of a boy. I never took any lessions but quickly fell in love with the drums more than the boy. Now at 15 I still love to play drums but still get attension from the boys and thats a big plus.

I think there is a un-avoidable desire to play drums. Horn players in the school band tend to make fun of percussionist but really they know they want "touch" the snare. One can see the desire in their eyes. The fact that an indivuadle can play a powerfull message that moves people inspires one to become a percussionist but after realizing it's hard work to be up to the standards of whom they saw play, one might easily give up and just dream. Then there is us who worked for the dream and made it a reality....

so with that drums are effin sweet I mean common, honestly can a trumpet play dark and evil solo that just flat out rocks and have nearly the loudness of the drums? Percussion has to most range when it comes to dynamics.

Im 15. Started playing two years ago in Novemeber. But I've been told on more than one occasion I'm the equivalent to someone who has been playing for 10.

I practice about 3 hours daily, and have a band (bebop).We play stuff by Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Stan Getz, Duke Ellington, Dexter Gordon, etc etc...

I also play in the school jazz band because I could use some work on my reading/counting (because I'm mostly a feel player). I took lessons from day one, and I switched teachers about 6 months ago.

I started playing becasue of no spacific drummer. But my granpa plays, and he had taught my dad a few simple things when he was younger, and in the 80's he bought a set at a garage sale so I've always played around a bit, but never seriously until I started lessons.

Along with Jazz I play rock, metal, and emo (No I'm NOT an emo, I just like the music).

Inspirations: Dave Weckl is huge with me. He's the first jazz I ever heard and I'm In love with his playing (even though he's fusion, you get what I mean). Max Roach and Buddy Rich are also great too. Although lately I've been picking up some things from Bill Stewart and Peter Erskine. But I have to owe all of my rock playing to Linkin Park and Trapt and the such.

For me, it was just hearing drums that got my attention. I've been into music for as long as I can remember...in diapers! My mom bought me my first "kid" drumset when I was seven and I haven't looked back 20 years later! I remember going to school dances and seeing bands, which made me want to drum even more. I still get crazy when I go to a concert and see a drummer play...or even go see a local cover band...it's still an inspiring feeling for me.

I joined my high school marching band when I was only in fourth grade, which at that time wasn't a common thing in my school. Usually you had to be in at least junior high to be in band, but I guess I became the first exception. Two years later, I became the head of our drum section...which was a blast! I stayed in high school band all the way up to my graduating year, and I also started playing in bands when I was 14.

I couldn't see myself doing anything else...drums is like breathing for me. It's like a drug to me: you get such a high off of it, and you can never get enough of it!

Hey everyone, this is my first post here, I'd like to stay longer too.

Ive havent ben drumming for too long, but it started in school, I sat in front of the kit at school, and got basic rock beat right that minute, and everything catapulted from there. This was in, say, September, October, and on Christmas day, after months of nagging parents I finally got one (with many of my uncles, who are very musical, saying stuff along the lines of: "why buy it? you'll sell it soon enough"). My parents never sold the kit (and by the way, its a CB but I'm not bothered, as of now anyway) coming up for 2 years this christmas, and I have a band, jam every weekend and gig. :D

For me it was a case of mistaken identity. Growing up, my best friend was already an accomplished drummer. So to play with him I thought guitar was my calling...it wasn't. Then I tried bass..neither was that. As time went on I realized I had always liked the drums themselves and the activity of beating my hands on my thighs, desk or whatever to any song I heard. So I went and bought a cheap set and tried it out. Yep, too bad I didn't do this younger in life. But I am getting all of it now!

My dad had been a drummer his whole life. I don't know why, but when I was a kid I hated drums because I was around them so much.

Because I wanted to be Stevie Ray Vaughn, I wanted a guitar and so my parents bought me one. I didn't know where to start and I came to the conclusion that I hated it. I put down the guitar and had my dad set up his drums for me. Much to my surprise they came VERY naturally to me, almost kind of weird. This was when I was around 8 btw. Well, 10 years later here I am.

Hey everyone.
I was inspired to play drums from a good friend of mine who played drums in a local cover-band in San Diego, CA (my hometown). I was around 8 at the time (1993) but I never was able to buy a drumkit until age 14. I stopped playing after a couple years (because of noise restrictions, among other reasons) and started playing guitar and bass. I'm just now able to start playing drums again. It's very fun and exciting to be playing again, and I wish I had kept practicing through the years.

Music - Rush, country rock, Zep got my ears perked that way.

Drummer - I'm in awe of Neil Peart and his abilities. But moreover I like the countryrock beats of Bruce Crump and Artimus Pyle. There's just something there....

Person - A dear friend who I fell out of touch with. He was a very good drummer and I didn't play drums when I knew him so we could play together. I played guitar at that time.

Style - When it comes to playing, I like a good bit of harder rock and then some of the countryrock stuff. I know, a little strange....

Inspirations - My main inspiration is myself. I realized when I decided to get back into music and specifically go after percussion that I COULD do it. There was a lingering doubt back then, but I've proven to myself that I can keep getting better.

Music- The Beatles.The first band I really loved (I'm sure I'm not alone).Led Zeppelin, natch
Drummer- Ringo got me into drums , Bonham and Buddy miles made me love the drums.
Person- My dad. He played drums in his youth , doing the Shadows covers.He also taught
me how to play the basics.
Styles- anything with a groovy fat beat.I love playing in the pocket.Mostly tho I play rock ,
funk , and folk.
Inspirations- Seeing and hearing great drummers present and past , especially the ones with
fat pockets and buckets of soul. This means that drummers that inspire me
don't necessarily need to have technical chops.Technical drummers are
everywhere , drummers with soul are a rarity.

I joined the city pipe band in the early sixties. Drum Major let me take home an old metal snare that had rope & leather tension for the head and if I remember correctly it had thick cord for the snares. That old drum was beautiful and to my ears sounded great.

Hi Everyone im new here!

My friend showed me in 4th grade that you could play percussion in the school band. I tried it and i hated it. I was horrible and didnt practice much till about the end of 5th grade i got a private drum teacher and i dramatically got better which inspired me to practice more.

Music - What got me interested in drums was listening to Sousa marches, a recording from the '50s of fife and drum marches from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and Dixieland style jazz. I was about 3 or 4 years old. Hearing the Stan Getz hit recording of "The Girl from Ipanema" in the early '60s also had a huge musical impact on me as a kid. ;-)

Person - My parents. As a young kid I was constantly keeping time to music by finger tapping, toe tapping, and marching around the house, and they suggested I take up the drums.

Drummer(s) - The anonymous drummers on the above listed recordings got me started, I guess. I started lessons at age 12 in 1968.

Styles - Mostly Jazz, Funk and World (basically groove-oriented stuff). Also formal rudiments (back when there where only 26 of them!)

Inspirations - Gadd, Bill Cobham, David Garibaldi, Harvey Mason and Stewart Copeland. Also my high school drum teacher - he had the prettiest sounding open, double stroke rolls I've ever heard.

When i was in 7th grade, i was just making that transition from juvinile musical tastes ("pop") into the good stuff. I really wanted to play an instrument. So one day i was at my friends house (who is now the guitarist in my band) and his mom's boyfriend had this really spiffy premier jazz setup. He was already playing guitar so i figured i'd give the drums a shot. Ever since i hit that first snare, i was hooked, haven't looked back since, been playing for 5 years now and probably for the rest of my life.

I had a pair of those circus things called devil sticks, but the one that you toss inbetween the two sticks broke and I started using the other two sticks as drum sticks, and eventually led to me taking lessons and getting a kit years later. I also used to go to Crospy Stills and Nash concerts and loved meeting and seeing all those drummers.

Well i started playing drums when i was about 14, i just felt learning an instrument would be an awesome idea and chose the drums (Thankfully). After a while of drumming i just got into it more and more, as i started playing for bands the fun just increased. BUT i really became attached the moment my band won battle of the bands and i felt so great i knew i woudnt stop performing!!!

Thats my story

Iíve always liked rock music and back in the day (pre MTV) you had to go to a concert to see any bands. I had no money so I hardly went to any concerts. One night the concert came to me, Led Zeppelin ďSong Remains the SameĒ, Hudson Mall Cinema, Bonzo, that was it, I went out the next day and got a job at Arthur Treachers, I kid you not. I cooked some fish, saved some money, and bought my first kit. The following week I was playing in front of a group of WWII vets at a private party bashing out mostly Rolling Stones songs with a Bonham feel or at least what I though was a Bonham feel. Iím 43 years old now and after a small 12 year hiatus Iím back playing wicked hard and redeveloping my chops. Feels good to be back.

And before that, i used to just drum on the couch with those chineese-eating-sticks-things, you know. And it just developed from the couch to be a real kit, that i play now (i dont use the couch anymore). So i cant say for how long i have been playing drums or how i started.
That is scary cos i did the EXACT same thing with the "chineese-eating-sticks-things", and I also get in trouble for randomly tapping on everything. So after the 14th phone call from my teachers, my dad finally decided to get me a kit.

Default Re: What made you want to play drums more than anything?

I plaid violin when I was very joung.

I was disgusted of music because of that.

When I was 14, I war forced by my parents to play an instrument. so, I started to play the drum because it was the instrument wich looks for me the less ridiculous.

Strange, hu ?

but since this time, I ve never stop, because drum is really my passion even if I didn't really choose it at the beginning.
