Back in '81 or '82, I was just a 15 year old punk and I went to go visit my brother at college for a weekend. He found me an ID, and off to the local bar we went. The band playing was pretty good, but the drummer was really good. He did a drum solo with his bare hands and I was pretty impressed. He had these monsterous 26" Bass (or Base if you are on craigslist) drums and holy cow. What a night. Anyway..it turns out that drummer was Chad Smith! I feel kind of lucky to have seen him at such a local level.
