Re: INTRODUCTIONS

name: Kevin
age: 19
playing: varoius percussion for 6 years
origin of username: a nickname in high school. I also use it on the Sabian forum.
top 5 drummers: tough question...John Bonham, Neil Peart, Dave King, Joe Morello, and Ringo Starr are some of my faves right now.
make of drums: toms and kick are old Rogers R360...far from high quality but fine for now. I also have an aluminum Ludwig snare, and a Gretsch snare from the 50's.
make of cymbals: a mixed bag of Sabians, and a Wuhan china.
where do you practice: my room, i.e. my parent's basement :p, and at the university percussion studio (I'm currently between first and second years in music)
in a band: nothing serious yet, though me and my good guitarist friend are trying to get an experimental rock group going
favourite take-out:probably pizza
country: Canada
one really odd fact: my ears aren't the same size
ho did you get into drumming: my band teacher, in grade 7, decided I wasn't getting the baritone horn right, so she switched me to percussion. I had a lot more fun and have never looked back, it's the best thing I can do.

Country?
Australia, originally from Norway

One really odd fact about yourself?
Don't know if it's odd, but drums is the instrument I've spent the least amount of time learning, but it's the one I find myself progressing faster on. I've played guitar for 10 years, piano for 7 and various kinds of brass instruments for 9 years.

How did you start drumming?
Drumming was my first love when I was a little kid, and I had a drumkit for a couple of years back then. However, I never got anywhere, so I picked up the guitar instead (and god quite good at it too). But about three years ago, my roommate at the time got an electric kit, which I suddenly found myself spending a lot of time on. I bought my own e-kit 18 months ago, and I sold that in march this year to get my Mapex kit. I'm never quitting again!

Too funny. I grew up eating McDonald's hamburgers, and now they just look horribly disgusting to me.
