At practices i would play our drummers kit, and i soon got my own kit, and started playing all the time. I joined my first band as a drummer at 14, a heavy metal band at the local youth centre, it didnt last long, but my taste for drumming was now fully formed.

Alec Says...
Last night I had my first recording session of the New Year. That in it’s self was not really a big deal, but there was one thing that was rather special. I used a complete Tee Drums set, Snare and full Kit. The drum Kit in question is my first signature set, handcrafted by Mr Alan Tocknell. It features the Turbo bass drum Technology that entails a large tube to be mounted in the bass drum to allow the air to be ported through the drum at a greater velocity.
