You Play The Drums (out of print )

from Quadragrip

Limited Edition ( out of print ) I'm including a free download of my favorite recording, THE NEANDERTHAL YODELER.

I don’t plan to publish any more books of this type, I've retired from writing. I only refer to my writing and publishing these books as:

“Clearing Out The Morgue”

The stories in my books began life on paper in the 70s. Written, stored and moved from place to place. They eventually became semi organized into paper notebooks, a Commodore 64 word processor, G4 PowerBook, iPad, iPhone and MacBook Pro.

My music & drumming stories from the 60s became: Notes of a Young Drummer 1967-1969

You Play The Drums? These stories are based on music experiences. Written observations of gigs, the road, jazz, avant-garde, blues, people & places.

i the first person: Most of these stories start with the pronoun I, referring to myself.

Are you ser-i-ous? You must be kid-ding! Jok-ing Come on now, No Way!
These are the opposite of I The First Person. I attempt to alleviate the (I) from each story. Many of them written while drinking coffee in a mall, cafe or sitting on a park bench.

The Road Is:

The musician’s life. Playing gigs, travel, clubs, bands, relationships and all of those things musicians experience on their journey. My stories are much the same as other musicians.

This book is dedicated to those musicians

Reflections in the form of brief sentences and paragraphs.

Includes unlimited streaming of The Neanderthal Yodeler via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
