My sons 15th birthday. I think a new set of Pearl drums and Sabian cymbals should fit the bill.

Which brings me to my near DECADE long quest to name this decade the Naughties. Why has this not caught on?

It's on Universal HD too - more guilt than a Catholic School. You know a cause is doomed when musicians get behind it in full force.
