Someone once told me don’t play what you hear …play what you feel

The drums are the heart

If I could do it all over again, I’d be a Flamenco dancer

Practice makes one stay off the streets

When I look at where I’m at right now I’m ok with that

Some of my best ideas come to me when my mind is disengaged

Fear is unnecessary

Motivation is necessary

In the big scheme of things, what really matters is love and passion

I cried when my drum teacher died

Music has taught me to expect nothing

People ask me stuff that doesn’t matter

Discipline is what it takes

Change is a drag

I chose the drums because I liked the sound in between

When I’m stuck I hang

Less is more because the bass player can’t “hang”

More is more because the bass player didn’t show up…

If I had to choose between losing my sight or my hearing, I’d….one eye and one ear

The thing that makes me nervous on stage is not being able to play really play

If I could have made a career on another instrument, it would have been the bass

Some musicians just don’t understand playing

Your audience is your employer

I’m happy whenever I’m listening to Queen Adreena

The future of jazz is over
