I played drums for Edde Drake from 1980 on and off till around 2000. He was a great entertainer. A very good guitar player and even better country singer. He had a kick-ass country Waylon Jennings kind of style. Billy Rees usually played bass with us and Elle silver was on keys for some of these recordings. I recorded these tracks on a $20 cassette recorder in the 1981-1985 timeframe at the Next Time Country bar in West Covina CA and the Speakeasy bar in Glendora CA. Both bars are gone now and Edde and Elle have passed. I'm so thankful for these recordings. I met my wife Norma at the Speakeasy when I was playing with Edde. These were the beat years of my life !!
