I'd always been into music growing up in the 90's. American bands like like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam, and the British electronic stuff too like Massive Attack and Underworld. Plus Oasis vs Blur, Radiohead. The list goes on. It was a great time for music.
I'd always wanted to play. I tried piano lessons but I didn't get far. One week I went for my lesson and saw a drum kit set up in the corner. I remember thinking "that's the coolest thing ever". And then I remember thinking "sod piano".
