I think I have the right answer:
Bill was given a pair of brushes by his sister for his birthday. He learned to play with these on the back of an album sleeve, while watching a jazz show on TV.</font id='Papyrus'></font id=teal></font id=size3>

You guys are too good for me . . . I'm waving the white flag now<img src=pix/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>.

I thought that this was interesting because in modern sport, music and all forms of human endeavour so much emphasis is being put on getting exactly the right equipment and learning conditions. We shouldn't forget that the raw talent coupled with genuine encouragment can go just as far!
