Veteran Drummers with diabilities and still at it.


For example:
The drummer from Def Leppard is a single handed drummer, and is a good drummer.

I've had back surgery some years ago, the cervical has too much damage and the surgeons wouldn't even attempt to operate there. But can throw a drum battle solo.

A Vietnam buddy of mine almost lost his right leg and can drum really good.

What are your stories that you all can share.

Re: Veteran Drummers with diabilities and still at it.


Some years ago i chatted with a drummer who played in a band named Buzzard Gravy and upon observing him perform i thought he did quite well considering he no longer drank booze only because he had discovered an item we're all familiar with and refer to it as a funnel,but that's not the best part this guy was also cross-eyed i kid you not,and the man kept very reasonable timing while hitting the proper notes. Afterwards in talking more with him i could'nt help but laugh along with him when he kept asking me what i thought of his matching double kick drums and twin snares he was playing when by all sanity they did'nt exist,i ended up chatting with this dude into the morning hours because he could make light of his disability and also overcome it with class. Cheer's to him !
