What are you passionate about?

I don't want to create factions of opinion, but more so learn about what makes you and everyone else tick? Not that I care, but yeh, thought it'd be fun.

First love is cars, can never get enough of them, it's sickening. I can have an in depth discussion about cars w/ anyone, and their heads will spin. I'm also passionate about people, it's people that make the world go round and things happen. Last, but by no means least.... Parmesan.

I guess out of everything I do and have accomplished, I'd say I'm most passionate about music and my piano playing...I've been playing for 14 years now, but I still can't play Chopin

I'm working on it, though!

I've always wanted to learn how to play. Never had an opportunity.

Ha ha shim, actually the only song I can play by him is Vocalise No. 2 (not sure what opus) for the piano.

I actually play more Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, DeBussy, and like I said, I've been trying to play Chopin, but it gets a little ridiculous...especially his nocturnes

I actually play bass guitar too, and it was really easy for me to pick it up. I also play the organ (pretty much anything with keys), but with the organ, you have a full octave (sometimes two) of bass pedals, and I've been able to play bass pedals since I started taking lessons when I was in second grade.

Anyway, bass riffs on the bass guitar are pretty much the same as bass riffs on the organ, so I picked it up pretty quickly. My ultimate goal is to be like John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin, because he did the same thing...played bass guitar, but also keyboards and played bass pedals for songs that needed a keyboard (live, on stage anyway). But alas, I can't seem to find a maniac guitarist like Jimmy Page, or a crazy singer with a natural vibrato in his voice like Robert Plant, and it just seems like there aren't drummers around today like bonzo!
