Rasila Queen

Here I am doing one of my favorite things- playing in a band with my friends. I am 71 years old and didn't start playing drums till i was around 50.My main goal was to get good enough to play with other musicians. I like to listen and do my best to support the band with a good groove.I have two vintage Ludwig kits and a Pearl Rhythm Traveler, my favorite. I hope to keep playing till I am 100 or more. Drumming keeps me alive, healthy, and interested in life. Good luck to all my sister drummers!

    Good luck! Just started a year and a half ago myself. My “retirement plan” is to play well enough to jam with others too – isn’t it the best?! Agree that drumming is so good for you holistically too – you sound great!

    You are an inspiration to me! I just started drumming last year at 52!

      Thank you Dana, I am more pleased to be an inspiration, than winning. Just keep at it and never get discouraged. It took me almost 20 years to start finding my own voice and style on the drums, so take good care of your health!
