This last semester I directed the university faculty rock and roll band. Anyone on the faculty or staff who could play an instrument was let in. I played whatever didn’t show up so I found myself playing drum set for the first time in 35 years. I had a ball and got better and better with each rehearsal. The band performed at the faculty xmas party. We had a full rock band, front singer, and 5 backup singers. We chased out all of the old people at the party playing such tunes as Brickhouse, Love Shack, Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, James Taylor, Blues Brothers, and a bunch more.
