If it's not completely obvious I mainly play drums.. Played entirely too many shows with out making nearly enough money to support a family.

I also Play bass, and guitar... but not nearly as well as I play drums.. Been playing drums for 14 yrs now. Opened for lots of national acts, and 1 international.. Had 1 band want to take us on tour, but my guitar player wasn't committed. I have literally played about all styles of music including Christian, Jazz, Country, Rock, Metal, Punk, Adult Contemporary, And Classic Rock.

Edit

Well.. My pictures aren't working... so I will try later..

What I play is

Drums: 4 Piece Pearl
Cymbals: Sabian
Sticks: Vater
Double Pedal: Gibralter Rock Series
Heads: Aquarian

I play a Jackson hardtail running though a Fender, my neighbors love my long version of "Sweet Leaf" hehe, but arthritis makes it rare now. I decided shooting was a better way of expressing myself.

Ok.. got the correct image locations... While some of the brands in the pictures and the setup is different.. Its the basic Idea..

The gear was kinda beaten down during these photos.. ( we were doing ALOT of shows... practicing where we could, I think there is a random garage in the photos that we practiced in)

All very cool stuff, and all of you get extra respect in my book! I mainly play a Warwick Buzzard (the John Entwislte one). Along with that I have a Grestch Catalina drum set, and am In the process of building a fanned-fret Telecaster...

I play a lot of Funk/Gospel, a bit more jazz lately, and also a lot of Hardcore/Rock stuff. Kinda two sides of the spectrum lol

I've been drumming for about 10 years now. I have played just about everything. Right now though I've been leaning more towards blues and r&b stuff, but there aren't very many musicians in Columbus that are on the same page so I am without a band right now. I'm also a tuba player and was a music education major for the first year of my college career.
