Not counting on drums what do you do for fun:

Highlight of your career so far:
So, so , so many....But a big standout, was when my Mom and Dad came to a Defunkt show in N.Y.C.
Knowing where "1" is....Pocket, Pocket, Pocket,....Starting a song at one temp and ending it relatively in the same ballpark.
Drumming means to me:
I can´t believe you asked this question!
Advice for up and coming drummers:
Where do I start...Ok...Learn to "tune" your drums. (tape is NOT the answer). If you what to be a "chops master" cool. Just make sure you have a "pocket" to put them in. It´s nice to be able to play in a band (if your get my drift!). PRACTICE! PRACTISE! PRACTISE! And last...Get a "Roadie" or become a Singer, IT WILL SAVE YOUR BACK
