It’s been a while that I didn’t played drums. Actually, it’s been ages .. nearly three years I reckon. With my recent travel intensive years plus many other things, I never really had the occasion neither taken the time to get back to drumming in a more less serious matter. But things changed!
Band needs a drummer in Taipei
Playing drums alone is nice as long as it is for personal practice. But playing drums is only truly fun when played with others. About a week ago, a local friend and new colleague “Stew” hinted me about the fact that his band might be looking for a drummer.
Sure, why not!
So here I am, in Taipei joining a band to get back to some drumming goodness. Above is a picture of our first session together, with from left to right: Stew, Adrian, Adam and of course me in the back photobombing the whole thing. As expected of a drummer I guess….
Style wise, so far I’ve essentially played rock songs. Some are slower and quieter than others, but overall some good rock vibes that reminded me of the old days in my teenager years. A that time, we were playing stuff like ACDC in my underground room at home on wednesday afternoons … Good souvenirs!
Anyway! I’m definitely looking forward for some rock goodness every friday with these guys. Oh, and before I leave you to it, the band’s name is: Gold Seal.
