    I took pair of sticks around a room once seeing what made the right noises. Some skulls resonate beautifully.

    I've found there's no car that can't be turned into a most capable drum kit while playing along to the radio at highway speeds!

    Very nice Sir Lud! I was thinking of you this past weekend while in Cleveland. Visited a restaurant where the decorative motif was that of early Americana items. Must have been 8 tin washboards. Think of you every time I see one. And now I find I missed another opportunity. Several weeks ago we had an auction of a collection of Medical related items for the past couple hundred years. Gathered national attention and prices were astronomical. Could have purchased several skulls fer ya if you would have been willing to pay up. Oh well, nice vid and you look good in your "kit"

    I decided to star in my own life, and I now appear to be some sort of inspiration to younger players. If I'm not careful, I'll turn out to be a Good Example, and that's worrying.

    Ha! I can identify with the "star in my own life" reference, but as to being some sort of inspiration, not too sure about that. I will say at this point, give the folks what they want. It is nice to see you appreciated for your musical talent, and the fact you are still getting after it is wonderful. I'm sure you'll be remembered for it in a positive way and you can't ask for much more than that.

    Music's beautiful, it's unending in the things to learn. Players in their 90s practice so they can get better at it.

    The music proceeds. Last Wednesday, we got a band together despite ill health of two players for a feature spot at an open mic. We went down well; tonight we did a normal 3 song slot at a different one, also went down well, but I'm more pleased with this one because the audience was mostly musicians (who tend to analyse and think about what they hear). When they're clapping and cheering, you know you're doing it right.

    The first picture is of the first Wednesay, with our singer, Arun, the second picture is a last minute guest and emergency replacement if Arun wasn't well enough, Nathaniel. He's a big old fashioned blues shouter, he quite rocked this English working class audience back on it's heels, they'd never been exposed to that sort of power before. Mission accomplished as far as I'm concerned, people now know there's something beyond la la music.
