    Remember the Ventures?

    This is a great story!

    When they first got started, they needed a drummer. They found a 17 year old, and he was the first to play their hit, ‘Walk, Don’t Run’. He only played a few months, because of his age, he was not allowed to play in nightclubs.

    That 17 year old, became a 4-star general in the Air Force.

    The Ventures played a reunion concert with the Air Force Band in 1998. Watch this video. Really nice.
