Hi SKA Fans





Hi let me introduce myself. I’m Michael Fanning the drummer for the SKA band Natalie Wouldn’t based out of Seattle WA.

I’m the drummer and have some amazing musicians that I play with, Rick, Rick, Shawn, Sean, and Kevin. We have toured the UK, Canada, and up and down the West Coast. Here are 25 things you might not know about me.

1. My passion is playing drums. I can get lost and my mind just goes someplace else when I’m drumming
2. My favorite time of the year is Nov to Dec. I love the cold and crisp air
3. I absolutely love my kids unconditionally. When I look at them I can’t believe how lucky I am to have them in my life.
4. I can eat Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream (Coffee Heath Bar Crunch) for ever, sometimes I can’t stop.
5. I love to snow ski even though I don’t do it much but when I do it makes me smile
6. I love telling jokes, I have a ton of jokes in my head but when someone puts me on the spot to tell one I can’t remember any of them.
7. I love public speaking the bigger the audience the better, it gets my adrenalin running and I love that feeling
8. I think having strong friendships with just a few really good people is essential to a healthy life.
9. I like really good wine and Mt Gay Rum and tonic, and if you’re out of rum then the old standby, Gin and tonic.
10. I was born in El Paso Texas
11. I was Louis in the play (The King and I) and I had a huge part when I was 12
12. My first car was a 1961 Chevy Truck that had a bad clutch
13. I love to watch the Housewife’s of Orange County and the Office.
14. I like having a nice looking lawn and I’m a bit obsessive about mowing it on a very regular basis, ( the Neighbors have commented)
15. I love gear, doesn’t matter what kind of gear but the more gear the better
16. Tucking my kids in at night it the best thing in the world, especially when they look up at you and smile.
17. One of the greatest feeling is playing to a packed club and seeing people really get into the music you are palying

18. I stress about losing my mom and dad some day because they have always been there for me.
19. I love travel especially in Europe.
20. I like adventures, and trying things I haven’t done before
21. I’m not a picky eater, I pretty much eat everything
22. Getting a hair cut is something I really enjoy, not sure why I just do.
23. If I could live anywhere in the world it would be in Italy on the coast
24. I wish I road my road bike more often it is up there with drumming
25. I’m really pretty simple and just want to make sure as I live my life I laugh and take time to enjoy ever min of it that I can.
