    As a little kid I was pretty sure I was going to grow up to be Elvin Jones. I loved his playing and he had this Asian wife that set up his drums for him. I thought he was the coolest.

    So as a short, pudgy white kid, I was still pretty sure I'd grow up to be a tall skinny black drummer.

    Obviously, none of that worked out.

    What'd you want to be when you grew up? How'd it work out for you?

    ...lol @ zales. i was a big fan of cozy cole as a young rock drummer. i met him once while he was playing with the treniers. all that legend but in real life he was an end of the road failure. bumming cigarettes off me thru the night as i sat at the bar with him buying him cherry after cherry. i felt defeated one of my heros was not a hero at all. :(
