When I was in fifth grade, our local high school did a talent show at our school. After the show, one of the bands stayed late and rocked out to My Sharona.

Right there and then I knew I wanted to play the drums.

For me, it was multiple songs, not just one. A whole album.

The first time I heard "Moving Pictures", and had never heard drumming like that before, I had to start.

hey, another Focus fan?? man, I was so into them in the 70's.. I convinced our band to play Sylvia back in the early 80's when we got a keyboard player.. I still have about 3 of their records in my collection :-)

Awesome, I have that Rush in Rio dvd. I was 11 when the first Rush album came out I think.. bought it.. then Caress of Steel, then Fly By Night, and then, oh man.. 2112 when I was 13 and as a budding drummer and getting drawn into Progressive Rock, and of course LSD, that album was the mind blower.. the one I'd put on when I came home still tripping out on acid or straight, it was my go to before my Led Zeppelin addiction. What an album.. of course I had to buy All The World's a Stage and Farewell to Kings, and Hemispheres.. and and and.. lol.. I've never stopped loving them.

Fun fact, when I was 16 and a councellor in training at summer camp, I had a girlfriend from Willowdale and she said Neil's family's house was behind hers.. she didn't really know the band so it could have been Geddy or Alex now that I think of it, but I'm fairly sure it was the Pearts because I was so jealous and the drummer connection thing.. I went to visit her once but never got to take a walk around the block to see if anyone was around.. judging by how down to earth they were I bet if anyone WAS out on the lawn or in the backyard they'd be ok to have a stranger/fan say hi. What an awesome era to be a teenager.

Great story!

I was 14 years old. The local rock radio station played 2112 one night for the Midnite Album and I was taping it, because that is what you did in the day. Those incredible fills totally grabbed me when I first heard them.

I had drum sticks but not drums yet. I laid out books of different thicknesses on my bed, replayed the 2112 intro, and immediately tried to copy some of his fills. Been a Rush fan ever since.

Totally. Have seen them four or five times at Pinkpop, Midsummer Pop Festival (at 7 am!) and other occasions.

Jan Akkerman and Pierre v.d. Linden are my heroes.  ;D

As for drums my first song was "Carry on my wayward son" 8) it was like a second coming for me. Almost immediately after that, I bought myself my first pad and sticks to learn. After some time, I was presented with my first drum kit (also from Alesis, but cheaper). Since then, I have been very fond of drums and don't even think about changing my favorite instrument.

But then happened another thing that called "Final Countdown" by Europe, that made me want to dive in synths... So after that I bought my first synth from Roland...
