I just read your story about Jack. He too was my drum teacher although not much stuck. I pretty much sucked as a drummer but Jack always had patience with me. I remember trekking to the weekly lesson. If I remember correctly his office was near Westberry Square. A friend of mine and I would go see him where he was playing at the Royal Coach Inn on the SW Freeway. I have always wondered what happened to him. I had fiqured by now he had passed away but he was truly was a class guy.
