Gardener,that was 26 yrs ago,since then I;ve been teaching violin,guitar and some drums.
Playin' fiddle in the same band for 15 yrs, about once every fortnight.
It was a long hard road and it would have been impossible without the help of my better half.
Now I work less for a lot more.Which leaves more time for just playin',mainly violin coze I wanna be a virtuoso,
bah,too late,that's OK there's........drummin'.
My Boy plays blues/rock/guit around the traps,have done a few gigs as"fill-in drummer".
Good reaction from punters, might git of me ass,might be a gimmic init.."Father'n'Son".
Oh yeah, just earning enough for more playin' time.

I really want to be a full time breast inspector.

I make a majority of my money touring and doing session work. Due to my ADHD, it's almost impossible for me to sit at home, so when I'm in town I work in the drum shop at Guitar Center. Good times.
The truth is not wide.
