This is the day I became a drummer. I think I was around 10, my older sister Cathy was hanging out with the biggest band on the Central Coast called Isherwood, and they rehearsed in our garage one Sunday......our garage!!!!
My god, this was huge. Anyway I always wanted to play guitar but that Sunday arvo would change my mind and my life. You see I could stand right behind Gary’s (the drummer) kit and not be in the road, well I became mesmerised watching him play (he was a great player). At the end of the rehearsals Gary gave me some sticks and said “go for it man” well that was it I was hooked. For the next three years I made my own drum kits out of stuffed suitcases & boxes & in the Summer of 1978 I bought my first drum kit, a Pearl Maxwin I paid $150 for it the rest is history. Sorry the photos not great but that is me behind those huge drums, which was a Tama kit.
