I remember being in a church play, The Music Man, in 1977, and there was a family involved in the production; a husband, a wife, and a daughter. The wife and daughter were members of the cast and the husband/father played drums in the very small "orchestra". This man was Joe Porcaro. Here was this world class musician, at the height of his career, giving up his nights and weekends for about two months, playing drums in the church play to be with his family. I remember thinking how extraordinary that seemed. He must have been a remarkable man. This is the thought that came back to me the very moment I heard of his passing. God bless you all.
