This blog spot is the home to my ramblings. I am a free lance writer. Most of my work goes on Associated Content. Sometimes I write what is on my mind, sometimes I plug some of my writing, and sometimes a combination of the two. So, sit back read, enjoy, and we will see where it goes.

R.I.P. Drummer Ed Shaughnessy
Ed Shaughnessy was the drummer for the Tonbight Show with Johnny Carson. Ed might not have gotten the fame of being a drummer in a rock band. However, it must have been a joy to play with all trhe guests, all the different genres of music, I think he had a cool gig.He died Friday after suffering a heart attack at 84.
Here he trades licks with Buddy Rich...
I think the video below really highlights his skills...
The piece he probably played the most..
Thanks for the memories, may you rest in peace Ed Shaughnessy
