Name that Celeb drummer...and other stuff

Hey folks. I haven't posted in awhile and I wanted to pick back up with NTCB. I'm not gonna mention too much about him because his face is very well known. I'll give this single hint. Around 1979 his band released a double live album titled "Live at Budahkon".

So today was a relatively slow day at the music store. The weather here is very crappy (in the teens). However, I had a pretty decent sales day. I sold about $900 worth of merchandise.


It's Sunday now. The above post was done last night, but I stopped because I went downtown to jam. Yesterday a 16 yr old kid came into the store with his dad. They are from Paris TX and were up to visit a friend who has cancer.

The kid was ripping it up while they were in the store. He did some Hendrix, Van Halen and Metallica. He was pulling off Eddie Van Halen to a T. He had all the high squeals, harmonics, and stuff down. So I asked him if he wanted to jam last night to call me. Well he did and we got my regular guitarist to bring out his bass. It was pretty fun. The kid is an awesome drummer too. He blew me away (nice ego deflator). The kids dad stayed while we jammed and he said that the next time they were in town, they would look us up.

So far the weekend is great...cold but good. Hope everyone's having a good wk end also.

That's great you and your buddies are so spontaneous like that. I could take a lesson from you, Paul.
