"Have you seen the Live! Tonight! Sold Out!! Nirvana video? I pretty much learned how to play drums from watching that. My first instrument was guitar, but it sucked, and I hated it, and I didn't have any patience for it whatsoever. I had a drum pad and I would play along with Metallica videos, and then one day, my dad asked me if I wanted a drum set. I can just sit and play with one thing for hours and hours, but I mean, drums are hard. I'm still always frustrated by 'em, but I love 'em.
