SKF NOTE: In this earlier post I wrote of how pivotal a moment was my meeting and interviewing Mel Lewis. This interview was notable for another reason. It was published in the April 1978 Modern Drummer along with my Carmine Appice interview which was the cover story. A freelance writer back then, I had no idea both interviews would be in that issue; no idea Carmine was picked as the cover story. The was a morale booster for sure.
