LOL, drumming is forever, man. I'm playing in a kickass 80's Metal tribute band (playing stuff like Krokus, Kix, Accept, etc.), and loving every minute of it.

I just find that I have to warm up more now than I did 15 years ago. But I'll quit drumming the day I die.

Rhytm is a way to transmit a description of experience
in an emotional and not abstract way.
It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

I've been playing drums for over 2 years now. Really wish I would have started earlier.
