Jimmy Hobson

Born:

Drums are as fascinating to me now as in my first ten years of life - Unable to look away from the Sears catalog drum page under my bed covers & to this day catching myself staring at the drums on stage or in the studio.

My first snare drum arrived Christmas day 1965... seven days later the neighbors gave me a practice pad to keep the noise down.

As a beginner I had great difficulty with the rules, grammar and logic of "How to play drums"  which in my childhood A.D.D. state put a limitation on my creative spirit. Questions like "Why does the dominate hand have to hit the ride cymbal? Can't I hit any drum whenever I want as long as the time keeps flowing? Fortunately this incomprehension was a lucky youthful gift - Unconsciousnessly I kept pretty good linear time with my movements around the drums connecting to a groove.
