I was in a ska band called Secret Agent 8 from about 2000 until 2004. We had regional success, played several Warped Tours spots in Houston, Tx. A few Mardi Gras in Galveston and cut a record at Sugar Hill Studio in Houston as well. Good times!!! That's me, top left.

Other photo is behind the set, an old Tama Swingstar with power toms in about 1997-98.. I was about 16 years old there

I set them up lefty style because I'm a lefty. But, then, I started to play them with lefty feet and righty hands. After a couple of months, I switched over to a righty configuration that I play open-handed style. I've played that way since 1959.

A few drum sets later, here's my new Camco Blue Sparkle set on an outdoor gig in about 1964.

I really like that first photo there! Good stuff!

Found 2 pictures of my first and second kits! Received my first kit, a cool gold sparkle Lyra, in 1967. That's me playing them in a talent show in 1969. That's my brother on guitar! My second kit, which I purchased, was my beautiful 1972 Rogers Celebrity. I'm playing the kit with a band in my dorm at San Diego State, December 1972. What memories!

Cool vibes. What's the band name on the bass drum? The man in the suit and glasses is doing a terrible job of hiding in the curtains.

Really great pictures and thanks to all. Born in 1961 so I missed quite a bit.

Here's the earliest shot of me behind a drum set, circa 1974-5.

What collection of drums are you playing? Looks like a little bit of everything...

Was that the infamous Vox "Cheesemaster" combo organ with the black and white keys reversed?
