Ever talk with a drummer at a club..etc..that eventually ended up with a big name artist?. I talked with Randy Castillo at a local club a couple times when he was touring the Midwest. Many years later he ends up with Ozzy Osborne. I remember talking with Mark Cranny at a local club only to realize that he was playing with Jethro Tull many years later. All of this gave me the feeling that if I applied myself doors could open....maybe.
