Steve Gadd: “I didn’t practice a lot because I hated practicing. But there was a time when I always used to be playing. I’d be playing along with a record, a group, or with other drummers when I was with a drums corps.
“But when it came to working on a thing that I had to do for a lesson…I hated that shit. It took me years to learn how to read music.”
