While in high school in the late 70s, members of the Marquette University High School Jazz Band formed a rock band to play parties, proms, etc. I was recruited to play drums in "Reel to Real". Before that, I never heard of "Blue Oyster Cult", "Thin Lizzy", "Jethro Tull" and other '70s rock bands. Playing in this band introduced me to different aspects of music that has helped me to expand my perspective as a drummer, musician and artist.
