I grew up in the 80's admiring artists like Howard Jones, Nick Kershaw, David Foster and Thomas Dolby.
My first synth was a brand new Roland Juno 106 that I bought as a 15 year old for my hard earned savings.
I was really amazed by that instrument and saved up for a Yamaha DX7 and a Roland D50 in the following years.
I played in a band from age 17 to 19. We never really got back together as a band after we were done with the military duty.
I started working and never really got into music making later.
I have kept the synths for all these years and have had some fun with them from time to time, but not as much as I would have liked.
When I found Reason 4 a few years ago I got really inspired and have been thinking more about music.
Today I use Reason 7 and Logic 9 as my main DAW's.
I seem to have too little time all the time...
