Since when do you evolve in music?

Stéphanie :
When I entered the Faculty of Letters in Nice in 1995, I discovered student parties and concerts of local bands.
Very quickly, I wanted to play to create songs.
I got hired as a bass player in a small band after reading an ad on the billboard in front of Hit Import. So I went to Guitar Maniac to buy a bass. It looked pretty good, a bass...
After a short appearance in My Diet Pill, I joined Kryptonite Def, a Trash punk band. Hyper elaborate lyrics and unparalleled poetry, fortunately no recording is available. But we had a lot of fun! We made some concerts, of which the inevitable Mouchtock in the pizza truck.
Then several small groups which made only repeat but always in the musical composition. I never wanted to do covers.
Passage to the guitar with Killer Crocodile. A few concerts. An unlistenable demo that must be lying around somewhere.
Then my Stella Peel project: I switched to guitar/vocals and Sly from the late Bug Heavyshit /28.50 joined me to put together some songs I had written alone.
After several concerts, we found ourselves without a drummer. We stayed together with a drum machine.
I took part in the creation of the group Dullboy but I am not part of it anymore.
