Show Me The Money... NOW!
Howard Cooper is a lovely man. I met him on an awkward tractor ride at the party of a mutual friends son. As with most parties for 3-year olds on farms, there wasn't much time for the mums and dads to chat.

How To Get (More) Gigs
I recently saw college website where they were talking about the drum teachers they had. The biog of one drum teacher said, “This person is very passionate about what they do”
