Re: Joe Morello
I just went to Wikipedia to check his tom and bass drum sizes, and found out he died over a month ago.
I always wanted to take lessons from him, but I don't live anywhere near where he did, plus I'm not good enough. But I would always look in the back of Modern Drummer for his ad just to see if he was taking students.
What a bummer. The guy was drumming like a kid at 82. I just figured he'd live forever.
