    Well, at least you had some times in a band and learned to play some instruments. One of my regrets is that I never played- always a spectator. I took violin in grade school, but never had the patience to practice- wanted to be out playing w/ my buds. I didn't know it took a lot of upper body strength to play drums- I woulda thought it was more about endurance than strength.

    You need upper body and strong arms to withstand like hours of moving around. percussion intruments, drums, congas, bongos, timbale's, anything that you hit, you need physical stamina and strength to be able to not only play, but keep playing for all the tunes you may hear at a show. The ONLY drummer who has no need to "work" is Nick Mason, PF who plays the "dirges" and it's all slow and easy. Check out Lenny White On the RTF disc. This man works, like even Ginger baker, he's a bit older but kicks ass, and I bet he pays for that. Then check out Billy Cobham, He is a machine.
    The divorce was my fault, I just couldn't get along with her boyfriends.

    I would have thought it was more about stamina than strength, but I guess you need both. You would certainly know better than I. I have seen LW on the montreux disc- he is killer. That is an awesome disc.

    That RTF is one of my all time favorites. saw stanley clark live once. having hung around with bands, musicians and worked at FM radio in the 70's, we were all listening to RTF and thier offerings. one theme in particular was the vulcan worlds theme, repeated and moded so many times by chick and stanley on solo offerings I got turned on to it early on and have been into almost everything done collectivly or solo by rtf members. Electric band went on to more intense involved music. have lots of EB stuff too. Pandora offers a nice selection of EB and members offerings, (on now) Dave Weckl another top drummer!
