This was pretty cool...

What did I do? Drums? I can't play the drums!


I always did want a Roland synth for my collection. Growing up with a "different" name was one of those "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" character-building Life lessons that children don't appreciate, but later realize was a pretty cool thing for their parents to do. Whenever I met another Roland, we had a special bond that people named Bill, Greg, Mike, etc. could never understand. So, discovering the "Roland" name on a piece of electonics was especially cool.

I ended up buying a Yamaha, though. Go figure...
