At the age of 19 in 1973, I was a member of Today's Children, a singing group that toured with Doc Severinsen and The Tonight Show Band under the moniker The Now Generation Brass. Ed was of course our super star drummer. Always the consummate professional, he was absolutely dazzling on stage.

I continued with a music career for 20 years after and worked with lots of drummers as a result, but Ed was always the man - the one I would never forget.

Ed knew when to take the spotlight and be the focus of attention, but also knew how to play as a member of the band. He wasn't run by his ego. It was a valuable lesson for a kid like me, who was just getting started.

It was an honor and a privilege to have worked with him.

My sympathies and best wishes to his family and friends.

My God smile on his soul for all the joy he brought into this world.

I played tenor saxophone in HS band in 1975 and we all wanted to be like him. He left a lasting mark on us all. We prayed for him at church yesterday. Grant him rest eternal.

I was at a jazz concert in Heckscher Park Long Island in 1969. I went backstage afterward and told Mr. Shaughnessy that I had come all the way from Lake Charles, La. He got a napkin and wrote on it to let me in at the Tonight Show rehearsals the next day. He told me to meet him at Rockefeler Center. I presented my nakin to the guard in the lobby and the guard laughed at me. Mr. Shaugnsessy and some band members were coming out of the elevator, he grabbed me by the neck and told the guard to let me in. I saw the Carpenter's, Karen & Richard rehearse. I went on stage and met them. They were so kind. I also met Jaye P. Morgan and Johnny Carson. Thank you Mr. Shaughnessy for the time of my life. God Bless you!

I remember playing with Ed at the Lenox School of Jazz back in 1959! He was a friend, and was always encouraging! RIP, man!
