Something like a bio.....
I get sometimes asked by people "with whom did you play...?" and often some names jump to my mind, but I can't remember the context...so this is the ultimative list of the first (and last..) 100 musicians I can remember. And I will not add anyone else...even if I forgot Beethoven or Lester Parker...(: But I will tell you how it actually started; First "gig" I played for a "no nukes"- campaign theatre. I had my drumset for about a week and was able to play one beat; boom-boom-tak, boom-boom,tak...a guy heard me play and hired me one the spot to replace a drummer . The man was Hispanic and I thought " cool a Salsa Band..." It turned out to be a Elvis Presley imitator and to say it frankly, I wasn't really familiar with the "King of Rock n'Roll". I didn't know one of the tunes I played this evening...and from then it went on from Elvis to Discofunk, from Be-Bop to Blues...and mostly I didn't know what I was playing...but honestly, who cares as long as you get payed for it...?
