*** I'm currently not really available as I work in London during the week and spend weekends with my family making up for not having been here during the week. Which all rather stuffs any chance of practicing up here. ***

A *cough* "mature" drummer and backing singer who can't seem to get the hang of acting his age.

Whilst I can happily keep a very solid 4/4 (and play to click if needed), I positively revel (and have written) in complex time signatures. I've been a fan of prog since discovering it in my teens. Neil Peart was my hero.

I've sung harmonies since I was about 6; I ADORE close or clever harmonies and have to attempt to sing every part in anything that has more than 2 vocal lines. Much to the annoyance of anyone else in the car at the time.
So long as the vocal and drum parts don't have completely different rhythms, I'll happiy do both at once. Just don't ask me to scratch my nose at the same time.
