Drums.

ABOUT

Playing and creating is what it is all about.. it's about the music and feelings within and what you bring to people not how much you make playing someone else's music (COVERS).
I play guitar, bass, some keys, some drums and always seem to wind up becoming the singer of the band.. I don't think I am the greatest singer, I can hold my own and above, but some think I can really sing so I tend to become the lead singing guitarist, lol.

Wish local musicians would stop complaining about not making enough money playing out.. YOU ARE PLAYING SOMEONE ELSE'S MUSIC why should you be making lots of money you aren't creating you are copying.. be inventive and creative..play your own music..

I am trying to Form a very progressive original band (with maybe some covers thrown in for fun). I am on the search for a progressive drummer (Mike Portnoy, Casey Grillo, Danilo Batdorf, Neil Peart, Jon Bonham, Bill Bruford, ) with remarkably fast feet (but not constant double bass, more tastefully appropriate) who can play odd time signatures, has driving powerful grooves and hopefully with vocals/backing vocals would be a plus as also trying to achieve harmonies as leads and backing vocals within songs (Kings X, Yes).. Like I stated very progressive, mood changing music
