    Can't even imagine hanging with Charlie - he inspired me to play as a kid! I want to be you in my next life :). Thanks for sharing - this is really great.

    Rarely do I experience envy of someone else, but this comes pretty close to it.

    Thanks for posting, Mr. D! You have a crisp writing style... and a fascinating subject! How can you go wrong? Loved it.


    Finally got the bass drum beater broken in on that Speed King? :-D

    I noticed that beater too. My old Speed King had three flat spots, not quite as severe as that though.

    You're obviously a very likeable guy from looking at all your pictures but I'm having a hard time liking you because I'm so envious and jealous. Is that wrong?....lol

    Awesome. I'm book marking your blog page!! Looking forward to more reading and pictures!!
