Ray Levier

I started playing drums when I was eleven years old. I learned 2 or 3 beats from a friend down the street who had just started drum lessons. No sooner did I even get a grip on playing a simple 2 and 4 groove, I had the unfortunate event of getting severely burned in a terrible camping accident (full story). After this happened to me doctors were saying I was going to die and when I didn't, I felt that I had a second chance on life and if I survived being burned, becoming a professional drummer would be a walk in the park compared to what I endured in the hospital.
