December’s Comment of the Month comes courtesy of Townman dbuskirk, who tracked down Todd Rundgren to confirm an oft-told tale from a former classmate. Poor Joe Epperson. Clcik here to review. Nice work, db.

    i cracked up when i read that post for the first time!

    and I love the Spicoli-like image of rundgren in that tale.

    but d-bus…diming out Joe Epperson like that on the world wide web…dude…you’ve wrecked his one claim to fame!!!

  2. Where I grew up, every drum teacher (except the one I used) said they had taught CurrentlyFamousDrummer (Steve Smith from Journey, at my time). It’s a common trope in the private lessons game.

    Congratulations, dbus! I think the 1200 year old man my mother hired to teach me the guitar when I was thirteen actually taught the guy that taught the guy that taught Les Paul. We didn’t relate well.

    Wow, this is just like winning one of the MacArthur Genius grants, I had no idea I was even in the running. “First I’d like to thank the Creator….”

    Remind me sometime to tell you about when I mistook a guy as the “Mikey Wild of Mill Valley Ca.” but he instead turned out to be a unrecognized hippie rock legend…
