Life In Tinseltown

Dreams of Drums

For his third birthday, Tom got a drum set. He’d been banging on pots and pans for months and we thought if he loves drum so much, we should encourage that. He came down the stairs, saw the set and couldn’t stand up – his legs didn’t carry him, he was too happy! I’ll never forget that moment.

He was drumming and drumming and he became obsessed (in a typical Tom manner) to Travis Barker. He started taking his shirt off and putting a hat on when drumming. He watched countless videos and learned the beat to “Steady As She Goes” by the Raconteurs. Listen to it, it’s a pretty complicated beat. After a while he moved on to other interests, and he stopped drumming completely, until a few months ago, when he started taking classes.


Below is a clip from his last drum session. Although TB the older may not  at first glance look like a great role model for a little kid, he certainly inspired Tom, and I’m really happy about that. Good things sometimes come in alternative packages…
