Ottawa, his parent's garage.
Four inverted metal garbage cans,
lids for cymbals.
Wood dowels for drum sticks,
banging away for hours at a time.
Begged the parents for a pair of sticks
mother surprised him with the real mccoy
a star sporting those gleaming white nylon ends.
First record ever purchased was Magical Mystery Tour.
Every week added another album to the collection
first pair of decks from a garage sale
right around the time of disco.
Taking piano and guitar
pocket money on Rock and Funk records.
