The Ventures

Remember The Ventures, a rock band from the 50s and 60s and their original 17-year-old drummer who left after 8 months and went into the Air Force?


Now a four-star General, he came back to play with them again, in uniform. This is pretty cool and will start the day with a smile.

Turn up the volume.

It's wonderful to see the person behind the title.

Though this comment was interesting.

"Great performance!
The General came to McClellan AFB, CA., for a command visit and as one of the Public Affairs staff I sat with his aide at lunch. Seems you can take the boy out of the band -- but not the drummer out of the general! The aide carried the practice block and sticks so that the general could pound away on his numerous flights across the country!
We later found out about the reunion for his retirement dinner, and loved the video!
Carry on sir!
