Pic of yourself

Awesome those were the days .Great photos.

My name is Michael Whitlow and I'm from Atlanta Georgia. I was in the same band, 285, for 16 years. We were the house band at Six Flags over Georgia in 1982 and 1984. After that we were "rock and roll prostitutes" for 13 years playing clubs while traveling around the United States (mainly the Southeast). One of our best gigs was Club LaVela in Panama City Beach (one of the homes to spring break). Great stories and even better times.

I don't miss the road too much, but I sure do miss playing every night. I'm currently a third year medical student, so I just play drums as a hobby now. At least I actually get to practice versus trying new licks in front of a few hundred people every night. I have learned more in the last year than I would have in a few years on the road (especially with Drummerwold).

If Drummerworld was around when I was in high school, I might have never graduated.



Yeah... so at the risk of sounding stupid, I can't for the life of me figure out how to post a picture. I see the icon that says insert image, but I don't know what to do after that.

This was somewhere around South Dakota possibly.. our band had a show to play in Minnesota (we're from California) and as I was driving, I decided to wake up our photographer and let him see the sunrise. He decided to wake up everyone else, tell them to unload acoustic equipment, and play in this open field off the highway. It was like, 35 degrees outside but totally beautiful and awesome. There's video of this somewhere.. we did this sort of thing all along the way, there and back.
thats just freakin amazing. probably one of the best pictures i've seen of a band. So peaceful.
