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
