I’ve been meaning to post this shot of drummer Paul Riddle for several weeks. I hadn’t seen Paul since 1975, when he was playing with the Marshall Tucker Band until he came to Asheville to play a show with Barry Waldrep’s Smoke In The Kitchen band. He’s still crazy nice after all these years. And well preserved too. I was amazed at his youthful appearance and surprised to find out he is three years younger than I am. So that’s how he does it.
