Being a drummer I collect autographed photos, sticks and drum heads used by famous drummers. I have been able to meet many by attending drum shows and clinics where the performer gives demonstrations and then has a Q&A session with the audience. I was fortunate to meet jazz great Louie Bellson who was performing with his wife Pearl Bailey. During the intermission I was able to talk with him. He gave me the pair of sticks that he had used during his show.
