A born drummer, Donnie knew he wanted to be a musician while watching Buddy Rich on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson at the tender age five. We chat about his career playing in bands, doing session work, teaching and his love of musicals. A discussion about health has him opening up about his depression and facing cancer this past year. Finally, we discuss the love of his life and getting married to a woman 12 years his senior while taking on the responsibility of two teenage children. Hesitant at first to do the podcast, we’re glad he decided to take a chance, and we’re sure you will be as well.
