    A bike is OK if you only have a flute to transport (or a sax, or a trumpet), but they are no bloody good for a drum kit. I mean, I struggled to get them in a car. I often thought to myself 'why the hell didn't I learn the flute'. It would have been oh so much easier. Its no bloody wonder I have a bad...

    Forget what you see cause the main thing can only be heard, The kick drum. and how it works with the snare is what its all about.

    All this electronic techno stuff is way beyond me. Any way I just want to beat the sh-t out of them drums and work up a good sweat.

    Yea back in the day there were 3 drummers for every guitarist, but they never lasted more than 3 months. It does look easy which is a major trap for many wan-a-bee group players.

    Yea the very thought that one day, I may have to give up drumming, fills me with terror. Its the only way now that I can interact with something that has been a major part of my life. I think losing that would just about finish me off....

    No one wants to stock stuff anymore. They are only interested in producing to order. Not just drums, not just musical instruments, but everything. Go and see a three piece sofa you like and try and buy it. Sorry Sir but if you order and pay for it today, we can deliver it to you in 6 weeks.

    Nice one mate. Glad to know you still have the stamina for it. I am nearly 70 and struggle with playing (at home) for more than half an hour now. Still the thought is there, even if the body parts and energy arnt. Ok so I can still lay it down, but not for long. Its good you are still up for it....
