Anyone else know more about his drumming?
His talents as a drummer earned him a scholarship to the New England Conservatory of Music but he chose instead to attend Johnson & Wales University in hopes of becoming a chef. He met his first wife, Elizabeth Kief, while working at a restaurant to pay his way through school.[3] He graduated from Johnson and Wales in 1978 and the school later awarded him an honorary doctorate.
