A couple of posts ago I talked about how I was reunited with my former marimba. Now I’ve made contact (although virtual) with my boyhood drum set. It’s a vintage Rogers kit with a sort of pearl-oyster finish that I bought when I was 15 or so.
Here’s the story. A couple of days ago we got an email from a friend who moved with his family to the west coast a few years back. I had sold him the Rogers kit, but to tell you the truth I kind of forgot about it.
In the email he told us his son (our kids were preschool buddies) had started playing the drums, so when I got some video links of the kit in action I was stoked. It’s amazing that these instruments are still in circulation inspiring a whole new generation of kids to play!
