Default Re: Rufus "Speedy" Jones - new addition on Drummerworld

I just read where Speedy Jones actually contracted a terrible degenerative disease that forced him to leave Ellington and quit drumming. Then his son went to prison for several years while this great titan lived out his days as a valet in a hotel bathroom. That just wasn't right. This is the kind of guy we should be studying in conservatories.
