" I've been playing different drums for 45 years now, and I'm extremely happy and grateful, to say that out of many, Gretsch was and is always my favorite. There is just nothing better than that Great Gretsch Sound. My music preference is Jazz, my two heroes are Elvin and Tony, and my drums sound is Gretsch. There is a lot of history behind those names and I'am deeply proud to continue with this amazing American Jazz Heritage. "
