"Only a Dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The seeds that his father did for him.
This is the line that for him I pen,
Only a dad, But the best of men."
written by Edgar Albert Guest

Discovered by his musician father at age 9 banging on 3 coffee cans using leaky ballpoint pens as sticks in their living room, it would seem his future was clearly marked.  Dad bought him a drum set, and he was shortly sitting in at a local jazz club in Kettering, OH.
