Ronald Gregg has drummed nearly his entire life, playing with musicians all over the world and for the U.S. Army Band.

But it all had to start somewhere.

In this installment of Storycorps Tampa Bay, Ronald tells his wife Bette about how he first came to love percussion, and what he hopes his drumming legacy will be.

Music:
“El Capitan,” by US Navy Band & Lt. Comm. A. Mitchell, from Sweatin’ with Sousa
“The Duke,” by Dave Brubeck, from Dave Brubeck’s Greatest Hits
