    the thing we all pursue, but we often stumble upon when and where we didn't expect to find it.

    Happiness is when you're riding the groove with a feel that seems to lift and soar all members of the band.

    Happiness is:

    Meeting fellow drummers for the first time and recognising that we're all from The Brotherhood Of The Stick.....and you just knew it before you even played a single note. We have a bond that not even the best anthropologists can fully analyse, nor our partners when they roll their eyes and say "are you out playing with them, again??" We don't discriminate, you can be short, tall, male or female, thin, fat, old, young, fit or not....but if you play with your heart, and even if it is a simple beat, it speaks to us all. Drumming keeps you fit, disciplined, and keeps you young and alert. I am so lucky that I found my bliss long ago as a teen, and even more so that I share and give back to the drumming community, online or in real life. I have made, and still continue to make, some of the best friends on earth through playing. Being a drummer is good, hard, honest work. Work on it, and the rewards will come, in due time. There is no other place that I feel like I'm at home like a circle of us drummers, no matter what our percussive instrument is, we may be all different, but no other group of musicians are as accepting of different people as we are. Peace.

    They're a rare breed, aren't they, NR? But when you find one, bam, it's the best bloody feeling in the world of music, hey?

    Well, worse comes to worse, give us a holler and I'll send a few Sydney ones to you over there, lol. I'm lucky, my list of fave bassists that I know well just keeps growing every year. I'm truly blessed.

    Good bass players are a rare commodity anywhere.

    The man I played with for a lot of years, until he died of a massive heart attack in his early 40's, was my soul brother.

    We hit it off when we met in a band I joined in the early 70's. We had a symbiotic relationship. We just knew what the other was thinking.

    When he passed, I shut it down for quite a while, and when I (we) started looking for someone to replace him, it took almost 6 months to find someone who I (we) were comfortable with, and it turned out to be a lady.
