    Hey Johnny Rotten. I just saw this post after I introduced my self yesterday. I too am from College Point - Flushing in Queens NY. I. older than you at 71!! I resurrected my playing after 50 Years [1969 - the year I graduated from Flushing HS]. I started to play in 1966-67, joining two other HS buddies who were into Guitars! I felt the beat in me, no Guitars. Took about 8-10 lessons from what I recall at the Record/ Music shop on Main Steet, just off Northern Blvd! I still have my Remo Practice Pad! and a pair of my old Oak Drumsticks with Nylon tips!. I shared my store on that post on how I got back into playing Drums in 2019. Retired now (May 2021) and play at home about 1 hour a day to My Music: CCR, Petty, Clapton, Mellencamp, Winwood, Stones, Beatles, Cars, Hollies, Talking Heads, Eagles, Dylan, Springsteen, Kinks, and more, including Linda Ronstadt & Bonnie Rait (they are really fabulous). Hope to chat some more about Drumming and Flushing (it ain't even Close to What it was).

    Slinky, Unfortunately, I really didn't see too many concerts. I was 18 when Woodstock came about. I did NOT go, but that was MY MUSIC for sure. If you know that story, Woodstock was posted on Banners in Forest Hills Queens as an upcoming Arts & Music Fair. Weall know what happened to that expected 45-50,000 people - exploding into 500,000! Regarding concerts that I saw in that ERA, I loved Ten Years After with Alvin Lee (first seen at Woodstock - the Movie). So I saw them 2X at the Fillmore East, Laura Nero (my wife's favorite - we were dating at the time) at the Fillmore East, Miles Davis, Jethro Tull there too. I'm located neaby the Capitol Theather in Port Chester NY. That was a major Venue for all artists/ Bands form Allman Bros. to ZZ TOP. I never there 1X while living in Queens and saw Hall & Oats there!

    My first kit was a silver Maxwin 5 pc I got in1979. My second was a brown Vega 7 pc power tom model I got in 1984.
    I played for 15 years in various garage bands and a church worship team. The church had a Pearl Export set then we got a Roland TD7. That was fun.

    I stopped playing in 96 and am just now getting back into playing again.

    The changes in gear over the last 30 years is amazing. It'll be fun.
