"There will be no hands-on drumming"

When he says retired, he means retired...

Which is a great change of pace, btw. Most of the guys in the music industry claim to retire only my boost album sales for a wile and then come back full force.

Another reason to admire the guy.Clap

I saw him at a local jazz club back in January, when he done his talk and book singing. It's worth going if it's happening anywhere near you. Very interesting talk about his career, and a chance the meet the man and ask him all those nerdy prog fan questions, you've been saving up for such an occassion. I certainly did..

Very nice chap.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Or he simply means he won't be playing bongos or other hand percussion. Wink
