    I started playing young. when I was in eighth grade my parents ran a bar in San Leon TX and one night the bands drummer didn't show up. My parents mentioned me and I played that night. I did little Biker Bar gigs with them until we moved. in 10th grade I started playing with a band in Granbury Tx. and played in bands until a few years after high school, when I had to decide between making a living or playing in a band, and quit drumming.
    I play other instruments (Guitar...) and was recording some stuff and decided I needed a drum part, next thing I know I'm back in it and wonder how I ever let myself stop playing.
    My biggest surprise was how hard it is to resurrect the old skills.
    In process of putting together an acoustic set, the Electronic are nice and quiet but, not exactly the same, and I hope to start playing out in the future.
