A couple guys I played sports with and were friends with had a band....sorta. The keyboard players brother was the drummer, he decided he didn't want to do it anymore, the opening! the catch was I had to buy his drums (Sears Silvertones) for $50.00 so I talked my mom and dad into buying them for me, we talked another mutual friend into playing bass and then we rehearsed for 3 weeks and had our first gig, I was bitten by the bug! funny thing is I'm the only one still playing. Oh I forgot to mention I DID have some formal training, I used to hang out with a couple girls, sisters, and they would play 45's all the time, I would air drum along with "Happy Jack" and "I can see for miles" by the WHO.
