The Chuck Jackson Rhythm Section
Vinnie Ruggiero's ii & iii with Steve Curry, one of Vinnie's best students and my first drum teacher
in an early promo shot for Gretsch Drums
Butch Warren and Benny Jacobs-El
with "Big George" Coleman
with "The Champ" Floyd Patterson
(Boxing was another passion of my dad's, and in this photo set was the only picture I ever saw where my father looked "nervous" - meeting an idol)
just me and him
with my beautiful mother, Mary
"Philly" Joe Jones
My Father lived and died before there was such a thing as the internet. Still, his music, teachings and legend live on. This small corner of my website will serve as a tribute.
After all, this is ruggierodrums.com... and he was a Ruggiero who drummed.
