Russ remembers his first drum teacher, and the man who really gave him the drumming bug, Mr. Phil Solomon.
Sadly, Phil left us in 2018 after a battle with Alzheimers but his spirit certainly lives on in all the people who he taught; his drumming family.
Luckily, Russ didn't attempt to tell any of Phil's jokes!
It's so important to have mentors in your life. Thank you for everything, Phil Solomon.
Stay tuned for more episodes of Drum Hangs reflections. We have some incredible stories to tell you all.
