My earliest memories are of drums.

The snare drum to be exact.

Dad was a drummer in The Royal Marines Band. He even, once, let me stretch the skin and play it. But my grubby little fingers were banned from his Pith Helmet!


Apart from The Royal Marines Band, drummers are usually the placed at the back of the stage. But don’t be fooled.

A little Drummer Girl I know IRL and watched live, more than once, in her parents pub in town (she was 16 at the time) is good.

Roger Taylor is beyond good. Back Beat? Watch and learn and wonder at the title – which are song lyrics from…..?
