Thank you Papa Jo, “Klook,” Max, Roy Haynes and Art. Buddy, Gene and Shelly Manne, you gave us all our start.
Philly Joe and Elvin Jones, Tony Williams too. Great drummers like Jack DeJohnette have shown us what to do.
Ringo Starr and Ed Blackwell may seem like worlds apart. But that just shows that 2 & 4’s an individual art.
So whether you play fast or slow, and blow drums hot or cool, be thankful to those drumming greats who’ve given us our school.
