Interview

Do you get back to campus and, if so, how often?

Rarely make it back but did stop thru at Jess’ this summer on our way North for a wedding. Campus is sure growing! Fondest (or funniest) memory from your time at JMU.  Well I met my wife there….. I just remember the awesome hang time at the former Wampler rehearsal area. We spent a lot of time in that funky old building...

Are there friends you went to JMU with and haven’t been able to keep in contact with?

Social media has made it much easier to see what is going on in the lives of my old friends. I do miss seeing them and having them as a part of my everyday life. I can reach these guys and gals but wish I could see more of them...Rich Deluca, Jim Pennington, David Boyer, Clark Bowers, Chris McGee, Jim Haverstrom, Biff Elson, Susan Freeland, Sue Linder, Tony Falcone, Sappy, Cozy, and I am sure there are many others I have not listed.

Anything you want to share? 

Thanks so much! Marching Band and Ensembles in general are great examples for showing the importance of team work. Those of you who play monophonic instruments should consider embracing guitar or piano to broaden your understanding of chord structure ( am still working on that one). Taking the time to practice the things that you are NOT good at is very important. I wish I had spent more time sight reading and improvising and less time practicing playing LOUD and HIGH.
