I was a drummer all thru school and college, played in a bunch of bands, everything from new wave (That Petrol Emotion, The Church, Buzzcocks) to 80's heavy rock (Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath) to punk (Cro-Mags, Suicidal Tendencies, some English Punk, some skate punk). I was comically untalented, but I hated soloing and was more than happy to lay down a groove while the other guys in the band soloed. So, that kept me popular as a drummer, lol. Recently took some Latin percussion classes and am looking to find a local batacuda Bateria.
Edit: forgot a short stint in a fusion band. Lots of Spyro Gyra, Chick Correa, Weather Report, Pat Methany..... Had to dumb down a lot of the drum parts, but I didn't feel too badly because Weckl and Wertico.
