I have always loved to knock around on drums, so it was a big honor for me personally to emcee the Church's Chicken Legends Series Award. This was at the World's Fastest Drummer World Finals last weekend at Nashville's Summer NAMM.
For the record NAMM is National Association of Music Merchants which conducts popular trade shows to introduce the latest in music and technology.
Prior to the drumming competition, three of the greats were honored. Elvis' drummer D.J.Fontana, Fluke Holland who was Johnny Cash's only drummer, and Richie Albright who drummed for 28 years for Waylon and continues to drum for Waylon's son Shooter.
It was great to hang with them as they shared stories of their historic achievements. Thanks to Boo McAfee for asking me to be a part of this event.
