The old guys still have the stuff. Tonight in Toronto at the 416 Festival Terry Clarke, Bruce Cassidy, Glen Hall, Kieran Overs, and David Story took to the stage. I figure everyone had between 40 and 55+years of playing experience. Let's think, that is 250+ years of collective experience. Yikes! And they still play like young guys, full of beans and ready to play.
How do they do it?
I'll speak for myself first.
What I observed in the guys today at both rehearsal and later on stage.
David Story: Professional pianist, drummer, composer, and educator. Well into his 5th enthusiastic musical decade, David works with adults pursuing musical dreams in the autumn of life, while he maintains an active presence in the Toronto arts scene.
