Last time I played drums was for a pick-up-band whose drummer was in jail. Chops were worn, drank too much, could not get out of bed for the next two days.

Technically, yes. I studied from his book on jazz drumming, he was so straight.

Allright ML!
We gotta jam out!
When's the next LS jam session?
My wife wanted me to get a stand up acoustic bass, until I told her how much a good one costs.

Hmmm, found a clip of "The Turn On Song" with ole ML bangin out the beat!

We were blessed to have a 300 pound Postal employee named "Tiny Tony" do vocals with us at the usual Catholic school gigs we did. As we worked more with Tiny, he started bringing his own black friends, great dancers to the gigs. I remember when we did a particular song and Tony introduced what he called "The Dirty Maggot", where the men waved handkercheifs in front of the the women dancer's crotches' as to cool them off. I wish there was u-tube in those days to register the faces of the nuns!
