61 and still discovering what I am all about, the musicians I play with seem to like my playing because I guess I am settled in as it were.
I have been playing more in the last 15 years than I did...

Re: Apollo 100 -The Rare & Great "Drum" Version of the song "Popcorn" You've Probably Never Heard!

Re: Here are Benny Grebb & Bernad Purdie lessons On Drumeo

True; his message seems be all about relaxing and staying in the pocket.
No running shoes! Not sure that would have been my one piece of advice.
