Did anyone notice that the spotlight was gone? I must say that Lou Rovner is a handsome man and his advertisement looks very professional.

With that said, would you mind if Ray had a little fun with your photo? We need to liven this place up a bit. Taylor

You said it Taylor. I need a break from the viper pit, as the bad Karma is "vibing me."
I have learned a lot about myself and others who blow negative rhetoric for 2 days straight. They become mean, grumpy, and they "lose their religion."

If we contort or manipulate Lou's very well produced photo, let's first make sure that he isn't wearing a toupee and will become incensed.

We've all been too wide-eyed with fascination as the foray unfolds at the anti site.

You're right Taylor about the missing spot-light. It is a good photo of Lou Rovner - tempting.

It should go without saying that anyone who purchases that spot is simply inviting graffiti.

I was thinking about contacting YouTube's Chris Cocker to plead for Dan "just leave him alone... hasn't he had enough?" Sober that young man up a few years and he'd sound just like George.

All right, all right.

So I say, "I don't come here to get kicked around".

And you say, "Where do you usually go?"

Oh,

By the way, Ray. What do you think is the statistical probability that I will kick your butt if you mess with that pic? (You won't need a multivariate test to figure that one out).

And Taylor, what can I say? You just take my breath away.

Will this be an exhibition match before George and Doug go at it, or would this be a four-man battle royal? That'll make a difference in how I place my bets.

Lou,

Violence is not the answer.

Besides, its a fine pic.

Kinda reminds one of Juan Valdez, from the coffee commercials, don't it?

So, I ask you, am I supposed to just turn tail and shy away from that kind of smack-talk and posturing...
http://www.raymondnelson.us/images/RovnerValdez.jpg

It kinda works. He's got that very genuine and calm demeanor that just makes you want to sit and enjoy a cup of java. Plus, he looks good in a sarape.

Now the real question Lou.

I'm listening to an old album from 1984 (borrowed) of a small big band - with names like Bobby Shew, Chuck Findley, Bill Watrose, Tommy Tedesco and John Patittuci. Is this for real? Those guy are some of the most talented people in the world - anywhere. In the 1980s you couldn't turn on the television or go to a movie without hearing them. You couldn't look at the backs of album comvers anwhere in the country without reading names Chuck Findley and Jerry Hey. What gives?

Ray,

Yes, that's my album.

Let's use the Juan Valdez pic for the next album cover.

Holy crap!
Lou---I had no idea. I am a lifelong musician--primarily percussion. I played professionally for years during and after college. I taught drums for 7 years after that---specializing in jazz fusion (forgive me Lou), funk, latin Afro/Cuban, and progresive rock. I also play contemporary piano and I am a bit of a hack on the guitar (the other instruments were born from Drummer restrictions in apartment complexes over the years---and wanting to stay musical in quiet areas.) Unfortunately, I sing like an old door.

Most memorable drum moment for me-----age 11 when I first met Buddy Rich. He was uncharacteristically polite---but I now suspect it was because I was with my then very pretty mom (lol).
Lou, I gotta hear ya man. Ray, is it beebop, contemp, big band? Please attach an audio file or name the record(s).

Amazing.

The secret double life of Lou Rovner - exposed.

Those cats are among the most talented and versatile musicians that ever lived. Some of them will let you know it too.

Interestingly, I met those guys at different times during the mid to late 80s. Small world, innit?

Damn. Now I'll have to spend the rest of the day looking through albums instead of getting real work done.

stat,

Somewhere in the boxes of albums and tapes, I have a tour-bus recording of Buddy railing on his band about not shaving. He'd just tear 'em a new crack in there back-side at times, so people started popping the record button when he'd go off.

I'll send it to you if I ever find it.

The personalities are always intersting. Buddy was a hot head at times. Louie Belson was always an even tempered person - while an equal giant of a musician.

If you ever want to see all the greatest drum solos and drum battles (i.e. Buddy Rich vs. Ed Shaughnessy)-----hundreds of clips of the greatest drummers from then and now, go to the largest drum video web museum at www.drummerworld.com at the top of the site, click on drum videos and feast your eyes on the collection---many of the hundreds of drummers has several individual video clips withing each bio.

Easily the best musicians website and video/audio website I've ever seen. From Bios, to charts (for drummers) nothing comes close. All free. Perfect example of the internet at it's most educational regarding the arts.

R,

You are frickin killen me! That last pic of Lou was too much! (Lou has a great sense of humor by the way. I also know that he would prefer the fruit of the vine as to a cup of joe). Anyway, great work!

Hey stat, I also grew up playing the drums.

My dad was quite an accomplished jazz keyboarder. He had many offers to tour etc. but preferred to stay close to home and play in local clubs for his friends.

I wish I had gotten any of his talent. Over the years I tried several instruments with pretty much the same results. Not good.

I haven't played in years now but do miss it sometimes and always wish I could sit down and play music for my own enjoyment? Many nights as a youngster I fell asleep lying on the front room floor listening to my dad and his friends "jam"

Jack

Ray,

I think you found the new Marlboro man - or maybe it's the Swisher Sweets man?

Jack, I have freinds with thoroughly musical families---and I was always envious. It sounds like a great environment to be raised in----creativity, art appreciation, swing-in-the-pocket tunes---through good times and bad. That's what I love about jazz---it's an all season, all mood music. I was the only musician in a family that although dug what I did, were ultimately a little scared of the possibilities of---well you know, lousy pay, hours, environment----and in my mother's words--"I am afraid you will go deaf honey." She was right in that I have permenant tinnitis----used to it though (my mom is secretly satisfied that she was proven right---which she denies.)

The Marlboro Man. Now that's interesting.

On second thought, I'd hate to chase anyone else away. Lou is great to tolerate this foolery.

I'm still hoping Dan Mangan will come back.

Its all in good fun.

----------

stat,

I have a neighbor who is a drum owner.

I have another neighbor who is a guitar owner.

I first heard that joke from Tommy Tedesco, whom you can hear on Lou Rovner's excellent album.

Last month I got some bongos and congas. Maybe we can all get web cams and have a jam session. It would be a better way of venting about polygraphs.lol Taylor

Taylor, check out www.drummerworld.com and click on "videos"
----they have dozens of videos and even some educational videos online that demonstrate hand percussion. FYI, check out Sheila E.-----not just a "woman drummer"--but one of the finest drummers in the world, period.

Just put the bongos and the patchouli down and back away slowly. NOW!
