WHY DID YOU START PLAYING?
• I had always been fascinated by drums but never really got a chance to play them. Then one day, when we were celebrating New year’s eve, a friend of mine got this crazy idea and wanted to set up a band. Neither of us had any musical background but somehow we managed to compose even our own songs and had a great fun making them!

FAVOURITE IE SONG
• I like all of them, but if I had to pick one it would be "Invisible Enemy" or "The End of the Universe".
