Laurence Cremetti

Years of experience in getting nowhere.

I've played drums for years, but now I'm too old and fat. I've played guitar for years but only REALLY started to play since 2015. I can't list any gigs, unless "open mic nights" count, in which case I've done about 160. I own one cheap acoustic guitar and one cheap Cajon. I am old and slightly barmy. So there.
