(The Unspectacular Life of a Career Drummer)

Rich and famous cover art

On this page I post links to narrative blog entries about a drummer who moved to London around the turn of the millennium to become rich and famous, and who now writes blog entries in a style that Hollywood might for legal reasons describe as ‘inspired by real-life events’. The blog entries are probably intended to be amusing, although not necessarily to you. They are not ordered chronologically.
