TRUE FACTS ABOUT JOE NORMAL #3

TRUE FACT #3

In 7th & 8th Grade, I played Timpani (kettle drums) in the Hamilton Junior High School Band in Elizabeth, New Jersey. After failing the Jazz Band try-out for Piano, the music teacher recruited me for the Percussion Section. In addition to Timpani, I played xylophone, celeste, chimes, bass drum, and whatever else nobody wanted to play. When it came to timps, Mr. Berger would shout at me to "Hit that fucking thing HARDER!" I took his advice and later applied it to GUITAR.

 

You can hear me playing drums on many of my recordings... Here are some of my favorite songs:
