The Bachs Quotes
I started drum lessons in the third grade. I took them in school until about 7th grade. From 6th to 8th grade I was in a Drum and Bugle Corps (Custer's Brigade) in the Lake County area. As a corps, we traveled throughout the Midwest; it was a really enjoyable experience. I played percussion in the Jr. High Orchestra as well.
My first band was a group called The Washington Squares. We took the name from a popular song of the time (in the spring or fall of 1963). The band had me on trumpet and other guys on clarinet, trombone and maybe a drummer. I was 12 or 13 at the time. When the Beatles came on the scene in the winter of 1964 - actually the first Beatles song I remember hearing was Please, Please Me in the fall of 1963 - I was hooked and started teaching myself the guitar. My first guitar was an acoustic that belonged to my grandfather.
