"When I was three, I have memories of my dad allowing me to get on his drums and bang on them. My father figured that if I was going to do this, he had better guide me. So he started turning me onto records, and I remember my first record I got. It was Chick Corea and the Electric Band, and I remember studying that record. My father was really my guide. He was like, "Now that you 've done this, listen to this". He would take me to the drum store every Saturday and we would listen to a tape in the car. We 'd listen to a great drummer and I'd be like "Whoa! Who is that?" He wouldn't tell me, and instead he would just let me listen to it. Then he'd leave the cassette tape on the dash board or somewhere in the car and then I would recognize the cover. Also, my father would leave the tape sitting on the table somewhere, and over the weekend I would go and practice to it. I did that for years until I figured out that drumming was what I really wanted to do."Ron's other main influences were, in the early years, the drummers at his church. Dave Weckl and Dennis Chambers were also influences.
