"After searching all over for the right sound.
Gretsch drums is the only sound I like to be identified with.""

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Work the hands with equality and there are many books on this.  “Stick control” by George Lawrence Stone is one of them.  Working with metronome is paramount.  Be consistent and know that the practice leads to the master.... you can have talent but you must continue to work at it.  Lastly, playing for the music is the most important thing."
