One really odd fact about yourself?
while in college, I worked in a morgue.

How did you start drumming?
My old man was a jazz fanatic and brought me to see Louie Bellson who was headlining a local jazz festival when I was 10 years old. I' d never seen anything like it: the double bass, huge cymbal set and the octopus-like Bellson play made me fall in love with drums right then and there. Joined the local music school and its marching band, learned the rudiments, joined my dad's big-ban, played for a few punk-rock bands in my teen and college years then went back to jazz & funk. Bob's your uncle!
