I started playing drums in the eighth grade. Later, I played the snare drum in the marching band in high school...which actually kinda sucked, because that meant I had to go to all the games and pep rallies. Being a little punk rock girl; I wasn't exactly friendly with the athletic and cheerleader types.
Back in the day, my best friend Michelle and I almost started a band. We were going to be called "Jungle Rot," but alas, it was not meant to be.
In my 20's, I sold my drum kit to my neighbor -- semi-rock star, Peter Himmelman.
Now that I'm in my 40's and around musicians a lot, I've got the bug to play again.
I bought an excellent used drum kit from a friend of mine, and with practice, a few lessons from drummer friends Cookie and Pat, I should be good to go.
I want to start a girl band!
