The key to any electronic drum kit is the look that completes it. Start working out NOW. You need ripped pecs and abs. Also, start growing a goatee. You will need to be well on your way before you get to the next step:
tribal tatoo. Pick something off the wall, they're all from the same tribe anyway.
Once you're inked up and cock diesel, start working on the hair. If you want to go long, may I suggest shaving it all around and leaving it long on the top. If you have curly hair, use activator to get those curls into little ringlets -the tighter the better. Tie them back with some sort of doo-rag or scrunchy. If you go short, the more you look like an Ultimate Fighting Challenge contender, the better.
Once you've got the body and hair under control, it's time to go shopping. Don't bother with shirts, you won't be wearing any! As far as pants go, you're basic look is going to be cut-off sweat pants, so the Salvation Army is your best value for your dollar. The high dollar items of your wardrobe are going to be your gold guido chain or, if you're like me, of a paler complexion, one of those exaggerated dog-tag style beaded necklaces. Your last stop is the shoe store, puffy skater style low tops (who cares if your only board was a Nash, when you were 10 -no one will know) or puffy skater high tops (these are vintage, you might check ebay if you can't score them at the St. Vincent de Paul).
If you got any money left over, sink it into a gas guzzling American faux-muscle car. Coups are okay because your electric drums can be easily stacked in the passenger seat or (in the case that you find some skeez to take home and bang after the show), in the back "seat".
Good luck duder, and remember 'electronic drums aren't an investment, they're a lifestyle'.
