Yeah...I jam.  Being a drummer is it man!

It is hard to find a good drummer...good axe wielders are a dime a dozen.  Sigh.

I didn't know you played, Boid. Too bad I didn't have a drum set and we didn't live near
each other. I'm dying to get back on the skins.

I was always told when I auditioned, "Dude, good drummers are hard to find!" I
heard it every time. I wonder why that is? I have seen some amazing drummers
locally. I guess the bad ones never make it out to the clubs and spend their
time auditioning? I don't know. I'm not great but I can hold my own. If
I ever get an electronic set, I'll have to tape some stuff and throw it
on You Tube. My alien friends keep promising me a new set. If they
come through, we can jam online through internet conferencing. I
make you a bet we will be able to do that soon.

Tesla is one of my favorite bands.  I saw them on tour twice in the 80's and they put on a great show.  I'll have to check out the new stuff.

One of the many reasons why I love Tool so much.  The incredible drumming of Danny Carey.
