ABOUT

I've been playing for almost 35 years now, and I'm finally fed up with musicians with no commitment that can't get beyond the garage. Up til now it seems to be my lot in life to enable the musicians with brilliant talent, to string me along and eventually flake out. I'm tired of it! If you want a serious drummer, with rock solid time and chops to match, this is your opportunity. I'm not a big fan of the whole drum machine style of playing (same beat over, and over, and over again ad nauseum) I like to mix it up, and put in a feel that I have developed to be all my own. I can usually learn the styles of the musicians playing around me, and play to compliment. I NEED TO PLAY!!! I will play with any serious musicians within 25 miles of Chesterton IN, NO FLAKES!!! Contact me directly at badcat_x for any questions.
