Had a professor, taught English and history. He was the go to replacement for musicians in the area. If he didn’t already know an instrument, give him two days to learn. But no group would take him on permanently because he was insane. Literally insane. Anyway, I bring this up because, for all the instruments he played, he refused to ever use drumsticks. If you didn’t mind him hitting things with his hands, he’d be fine. But try to put sticks in his hands and he’d storm out. Kept in touch after graduating, and he told me it had started because he hated a specific drummer, and had refused to use drumsticks that guy had touched. He found out after filling in once, that the band had lied about getting “clean” sticks, so he just decided it was best not to touch any drumsticks.
Never did ask what the one drummer had done. I miss that crazy old loon.
