    Default Introduction From TimeSpace&Drums

    Not sure if there is an introduction forum but thought I would add one here as I cant find a specific one, not sure if there actually is one but believed that this was the usual process, just to say hi.

    And so, hi drummers and less evolved people, (well we have to fight back don't we - light bulbs indeed - Steve Gadd never changed a light bulb in his life),

    Hope things are well. I just thought I would quickly introduce myself in this forum as I am new here and have never really been much for idle chat... we drummers like to get things done, but you knew that already didn't you. Itís getting those guitarists away from the bar thatís the problem.

    Anyway, a bit about me. I call myself a drummer but I am actually just a pretender at present. I donít even have a kit, I switched to electronic some years ago after I had a bad car accident as the noise began to really bug me. No, I wasnít the drums that were bugged, they were just miked. oh no I am so bad, itís a good job I spent 35 years at the back of the stage cos I wouldnít be able to make it up front.

    I was saying, ah, but then I had to sell even the electronic kit as the neighbours just wouldnít shut up. Neighbours are so noise but you most likely knew that too.

    And so, I was working with Susan Maughan, the woman who did Bobbies Girl in the 60s, and people like Paul Daniels and Les Dennis etc, on the cabaret scene. I did a lot of UK tours and Pantomimes Shows etc as I preferred the reading gigs to the whole rock star thing. But that was most likely because I was never offered work in the band scene. You know the type that get deals. Original bands and so on. I was too busy chasing the reading gigs down.

    Since I got rid of my kit some years ago I have been writing books and developing websites etc and maybe one day will be ready to publish those, but I actually plan to get myself a drum kit and create some videos to go with the books , that is if I can still play.

    And so thatís me. Not that impressive for 35 years playing but hey I am just a beginner.
    So anyway hope your well and hope we get to chat over the coming weeks, months and years. I am still busy so will need to schedule time when I visit but I am usually around.
    All the best.

    Welcome to Drum Chat BRK!
    - Tom

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.

    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.
