I am Issy L. Phoenix and I love playing rock music with stick tricks .
I have started with playing guitar but always have been attracked by the drums! One day I have had the possibility by chance to get a drum lesson from my drum
hero Bertram Engel. Although I couldn`t play anything at that time I got so much motivation and inspiration that this meeting was the game changing moment for me.
I have promised myself if I would ever get the chance to play with him again then I can play drums!
A few years later I really have bought my first drumset which I am still playing and started practicing at my grand parents house.
I got in a band, we got 2nd place from 16 bands in a local contest, played several times in a sold out cinema and on local festivals with 1400+ people.
Last year I got 3rd place at a online playalong contest.
My best moment has been playing a song with a well known band from Hamburg on their sold out show. You can't discribe that feeling when 700 people jump for the first time to your bass drum if you have never experienced this on your own. This can make you addicted.
My big dream is to play rock music in a big stadium or arena. Maybe this can come true this year with the awesome event Rockin1000 !
Some of my favourite drummers are Bertram Engel, Chad Smith, Dave Grohl, Glen Sobel and Mario Goossens.
Good luck to everyone ! Keep on rocking !
