We are glad to announce that Nor Din @ Bem will be permanently taking the drumming position for DEP. Welcome aboard! Brief musical history about Din… well he has none. Din was never in any band before and was laughed by his previous jamming buddies when he initiated the idea of forming a band and writing their own material. Those buddies were nowhere to be found now and look where Din had ended up… with DEP! Din, please ask them… “Who has the last laugh now?” He is currently working at Limkokwing University as a cameraman and girls; we think he is still single! :)
We also would like to take this opportunity to thank our previous skin bashers, Wan and Asma who have been collaborating with us for gigs and recordings circa 1995-2003. Your company will surely be missed and can never be forgotten.
Wan is currently working in Kuantan. Last time we heard, he worked at a hotel near the Telok Chempedak seaside. Am not sure whether he still work there or even drumming for any other bands nowadays. After he left DEP, he played with a band called Anti-Hero. Also not sure what happened to this band.
Asma is currently teaching secondary school pupil and on weekends, teaching students of UMP (University Malaysia Pahang, is this correct? Anybody?) to play drums and stuffs. He’s also playing with a band for Sultan of Pahang, for His Majesty’s royal functions. He once told me that he jammed on several occasions with Siti Nurhaliza… yeah, that’s a real achievement…
So kids out there, play your musical instrument whole heartedly and you will have your chance of performing with Siti Nurhaliza… or maybe M. Daud Kilau… your choice!
