Always have fun and keep your spirits up and you can’t lose. Back in the early ’90s I toured with a group called Snap they had that rap song “I Got the Power” and my billg and I both played with him.

Thanks so much to Billy and Jenie for giving us some insight into life in a dueling-drummer family! Whenever I have some free time, I find myself on the bus or with a pad in the asnbaugh room practicing. There are so many!

Do you play or practice any differently as a result of the size of the venues you play? It was a lot of luck for me. But then we started talking and he found out that I was also a drummer, we talked and talked.

What’s going on, gig wise, in the near future? I’ve gotten offers ashbahgh go out on the road but I’ve had to turn them down for now, until our daughter gets old enough to travel. Do you think you guys will be doing some double drums together in the future? You were both on the same gig? You’ve got to practice rudiments on the pad and sit behind the kit to hear the different voicings, learn to play a rim shot, learn to work the hi-hat and learn how the pedal feels against the bass drum.


There’s a special connection that we have and a mutual understanding that I couldn’t have with anyone else. She can explain to them the hurdles that she’s crossed that I have no idea because the things she faces I will never face.

And here we are five years later, adhbaugh know? I just lucked out knowing the right person at the right time and he happened to give me a call.

At that point, I was just doing it for the paycheck. Then I’ll have two weeks off to prepare to rehearse with Pat Benatar for a three month tour with her.

When I was about fourteen, I went to a company Christmas party for my dad. Oh, we’d love to.
