My first drum kit

Postby BIG TIME BOO-HOO » 20 Nov 2018, 12:50

The first drum kit I ever played was a Chad Valley one, in 1971. I was three. It was mine but Philip Harrington was better than me and I was jealous.

Of course Philip Harrington went on to drum for the mighty Big Big Train.

Only two sticks!
Not everyone is an artist but everyone is a fucking critic.
On mellow blue, birds curve and glide Through shadows of grief she slides
This is where we walked This is where we swam Take our picture here Take a souvenir

An older model of this with Paiste 2002 and Zildjian cymbals and later an additional crash. (I saved up for it myself)
