** I play the drums and this page contains information and media about me as a drummer. Info at the top, videos in the middle and photos at the bottom. **
I started drumming at Christmas 2002. I started drumming seriously for gigging bands in Summer 2003 for four solid years.
I stopped drumming seriously September 2007 after moving country for University. I started seriously drumming again in October 2010 and continued for a few years, but when I became an adult I had to give it up. I bought a kit again in about late 2018 and try to squeeze some in every month or so.

Ok, So here is a video of me playing a few non connected beats on an electro kit in July 2008 after having not played drums since September 2007.
“regardless of whether I like the bands”. Don’t you love all of them, though?
Ace new drumming video. A concious decision to not use the doubles or did you leave ’em in Stafford? Also amused by your instinctive catching of the cymbal at the end there.
Really makes me want to record a few drumming videos, which I might do this week. They’ll probably sound like shit but I might be able to at least get a different angle.
Also also, you mentioned they were audition vids: for what?
Ah, just the first time I ever recorded one was as an audition to some black metal band… so I have just got into the habbit of calling videos of just me drumming audition vids.
Also good call on Band o blus… what is the real name though ?
Also… left the pedals in Stafford.
Also… will do game photos RIGHT NOW…
Used to have em, but it kept getting outdated.
Also DO INDEED Blog copy the page, I wanna see.
