Mostly intentional comic relief

Whatever your feelings about MD, the October issue that I received today is highly recommended. There is an interesting and comprehensive article on Bill Ludwig II that really does a nice job of paying tribute to this great man. And, I say "great man" not merely because I play the brand of drums that he and his father were responsible for, but because of his love of percussion and his role as an ambassador for drums and drumming. From everything that I've read and seen, he genuinely cared about what he did, and got a lot of fulfillment from sharing his vast knowledge and being a mentor to others. There are some very heartfelt remeniscing by Ed Shaughnessy, Bill III and his sister Brooke, Joe Morello, Alan White and Jim Catalano, among others. A good read!
