So here's a video of this old man absolutely smashing it on the drums.
This video made me smile for a number of reasons. But mainly, made me smile because it reminded something very important.
I am getting older now and it is getting scarier. The dream of becoming a musicians is fading by the day. It is often that I ask myself what is the point of playing the drums. And, what is the point of being a drummer.
After watching this video, it is so very clear to me that these are things I should not worry about. I can play drums for as long as I want to and I can perform until I am as old as I want to.
Playing drums does not only equate to the success of playing stadiums shows and being world famous. No, in fact you can make people feel something by performing. Even if it is for a fraction of a second. And, if it is a stadium or a shitty bar, who cares really? As long as you're having fun playing the drums. Or whatever instrument it is that you play.
