Personal Quote:

I bought one record once because of the drums, and that was Cozy Cole doing "Topsy". But all the records I bought were for the whole record. It's not like I was searching out drummers and that. Al Jackson was great, of course. It's always been the whole band and the singer that's really excited me. See more »

Is naturally left-handed but his grandmother corrected him and now writes right-handed. However, he plays left-handed with a right-handed drum set and makes unusual accents and stops. See more »
