I love to play my drums to all kinds of music & genres. Easy to get along with but won't take abuse. I am self taught in all the instruments I do play this was way before you tube was around. LOL I am looking to jam and possible create a Fun Jam Band , meaning one or two gigs month, not looking to make it big I am over that stage in my life but if I can will help other to reach that goal. I have a rehearsal room in my home studio well equip with my drums a full PA mixer and a couple of acoustic and electric guitars, and other items. I don't need people using drugs in my life (Ex Law Enforcement Officer) and don't like people who can't hold their liquor and get stupid (to old to deal with the headaches). Look forward to meeting and jamming with some musicians I meet on here. God Bless and Rock on!!!!

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

There are many Artist now a days who feel just because they are followed in Social media they served their time to make it big. what I would change is for them to have to hit the streets (parties, clubs,local pubs) Before they are offered any contracts. Not the same to clean up your songs on YouTube, than to play them live!!!

Seeing people call themselves musician based on loops. They just added loops together to make a song. Real musicians can create those loops.
