There’s a surprisingly common phrase out there: “Once a drummer, always a drummer.” Well I’m sure that applies to a lot of things but there’s something to be said about this one. The rhythm and musical ability never really leaves you once you’ve trained and practice to keep precise time and nail those killer beats.
Deputy A.J. Mendez hadn’t touched a pair of drumsticks in quite a few years when he found himself on duty at a high school football game. His alma mater was one of the teams and his old drumline was there to get the crowd energized. When he picked up the drumkit he surprised the young musicians with his abilities. But he had a secret up his sleeve. He was way more familiar with that particular cadence than they could ever know.
