Cool
An Oldie but a Goodie!

A long time ago, in a garage far, far away, there was a new band in Tacoma Washington, just a bunch of kids, and they were looking for a drummer. There next door neighbor had a son who played drums in the marching band, so they asked him to join in with them. He was instrumental in the arrainging of quite a few of their songs, but after 9 months, he graduated, and joined the Air Force. 38 years later, he was able to rejoin them for a performance...

The song...Walk, Don't Run...(some of you will recognize it!)

The Band...The Ventures...

The 17-year old drummer...now Air Force 4-star General George Babbitt.

The Ventures, featuring Gen. Babbitt

Excellent post! A terrific band. Back in my younger days we played many of their songs and they were always well received. Fun music to play & listen to.

I'm not sure I'd refer to them as a "cover" band. They are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

The VENTURES!!! YES! YES! YES! I have a couple of old albums that I had when I was very young...say, 8 or 9 years old, that were among the items my brother left to me when he married and moved out..(he took his Metallic Blue 62 SS Impala, but that's another story)..anyway, one of the albums had "Walk, Don't Run 1964" as the lead track. The other you could only buy from a record club. Love surf music, always have always will.
Twizter, good taste in music!!
