If Papa Jo was there, There were smiles behind the kit! He was the happiest drummer that I have ever seen! He made the audience feel welcome with his captivating smile and charisma! Couple that with the fact that he was one of the best drummers to have ever put stick to head and you have the real deal!
Thank you for that vid.
