Year 17

My HUGE Genesis and Phil Collins obsession began in high school. I figured if could play like Phil, and wore “driving caps” like Phil, maybe someday he would see me. I even transcribed one of his most complex drum performances to “Down and Out” which was published in Modern Drummer. I have the original manuscript and printed publication tucked away in my hope chest to prove it.

Comfortably flanked by my fellow band members I see comfort and confidence in this photo. I was in my element and saw a future bursting with music and love. Savanna Jazz Band members and our Director Mark Lowery raised the bar and inspired the best in each other!

“Band Geek” is a badge I proudly wear.
