One night I went to sit in on drums with my friend Neil Morrow’s band. After watching a few songs with Sammy K on skins, I left the bar, went home and practiced for about 3 weeks straight! I don’t like it when drummers are better than me. Way better! I was kidding about going home. I stayed and played a few tunes. Sammy couldn’t have been more supportive and generous. I asked if he would give me a few lessons and I’d pay him in cigars. He agreed and we’ve been good pals ever since. Sammy is the real deal drummer. The drummers, drummer and one of the most professional musicians I’ve ever seen.
