    I met them all and studied with Joe Morello in the late 60’s. Dave and Joe and Paul and Eugene were great to be around. Once again I am saden at hearing of Dave’s Passing, A great man!

    it is due to a friend drummer, a man I consider to be like a brother, that I learned more about Dave, and Joe Morello.
    Daves music is stained in my brain.
    A great musician.

  3. Sara says:

    My Dad was his greatest fan when I was a kid. I swear “Take Five” is etched in my brain, forever. Sad when they go, but this man left “forever” for us to enjoy in his music. Rest in Peace, Dave! And, thank you for sharing your great, great talent with the world!

“To me, there was a deep confusion that still persists,” Morris told the crowd, “and I don’t know what you can do to disabuse people of this notion. I suppose you could hit them in the head with a large piece of lumber, but I’m not sure that would do the trick. It’s a simple rule: Style doesn’t guarantee truth. Truth is something far more elusive. Truth is a quest; you pursue truth. You go after it, you try to uncover it, because we all know that we live in a sea of falsehood. I mean, there shouldn’t be any tool that should be unavailable to you in the pursuit of truth.”

“I hang out with highbrow people and I have on certain occasions earned my living with non-highbrow people. I don’t know what I am. A highbrow wannabe? I’m a groupie of intellectuals. I try to hang around them but maybe I am a clown who enjoys the company of intellectuals. Or maybe I’m a semi-intellectual who likes to hang out with clowns.”
