"I Gotta Have More Cowbell!!"...The Bruce Dickenson
Okay, Okay...."I gotta have more Cowbell Baby!!!"...or was that a Baby Cowbell?
Professional Drummer / Percussionist /Teacher / Clinician. I'm also a monkey at times - but, what drummer isn't? I love most all music and am a rhythmic maker of noise. I have been blessed to have worked with a lot of truly amazing artists, and have a great family. I love cars, trucks, boats, fishing, hunting, the great outdoors, traveling, kayaking, biking, sky diving, art, window shopping, browsing through antique shops, and art galleries, helping others, sun rises and sun sets, bonfires and long walks on our private beach. Like Elton John sang...and how I feel today...."I'm still standing!" Is it time to go on yet?
What drummer are you?
You are Buddy Rich. Some say your the best drummer EVER! Good job :)
Who I'd like to meet:
People who love music, drums, & helping others like me.
