ABOUT

I've been a professional percussionist (drummer) since I got out of the Army in 69. On the road for many years and I've played drums for Truth, Thunder Chicken, Wham, Jimmy Clanton, Bobby Lewis, the Drifters, Chubby Checker, The Times, the Toys, Ruby and the Romantics and the last gig I had while in the service was with Auther Conley, ala (Sweet Soul Music) I guess you can just say that I've been there and done that. lol
