1 ThePolecats 3 weeks ago My friend has a Yamaha drum kit. He's into rock and that's all fine and all but I'm not moved by rock to play drums. I don't own drums but he gave me a basic drum lesson. Yes Buddy Holly and the Crickets are rock n roll but when I say rock I mean '60s and '70s classic rock. I listen to some of that but it doesn't move me to want to play drums. This is what drives me. One day I'll get drums. I also love swing band drummers. Listen to "Rock Around The Clock", the drummer was obviously a swing drummer. Well I read that but I can hear it too. His name is William "Billy" Gussak.But this is the main reason I am interested in drums. Jerry "Ivan" Allison is an amazing player. How about you?
