Yup... Frank... deserving indeed... and yes, I marched with him... a few thousand years ago...

Last time I saw him was when he showed up at Vince Bruni's wake...

I didn't make his birthday concert last year, but my brother got to make a snare drum clock that was presented to him that night... :mellow:

I am hoping he wins the Grammy, and I will vote for him.

After a career like his, it would be well-deserved.

Steve's drumming on "Late in the Evening" is alone worthy of an award, and he's been throwing this stuff down for years, as you know.

Yes I know..... been a long time since drum corps days 60-65 with either Ridge Culver Statesmen or Crusaders...

and even longer since Disney featured him on the Mickey Mouse Club in the late 50's

Once in a while videos of that turn up... he was VERY young
