A wealth of articles, clippings, and other material that could not be included in the book is gradually being added to this website as time allows. For now, it is a labor of love for Barbara, who currently devotes most of her time to her online business of writing, book editing, publishing, and consulting.

***

The Drummer Drives! website was designed to be both a growing archive of historical music-related information and a place where today's percussionists and other musicians could wax nostalgically about their own careers by making comments to posts or by writing a short article for publication (see examples in READER MAIL at right).

***

Already a treasure trove of historic "music biz" information, articles by other musicians, and rare photographs, programs, and other nostalgic music memorabilia from the Brabec scrapbooks, the site will only get more interesting and important to researchers as time goes by.

Harry Brabec at four different stages of life between 1961 and 2004.Did You Know Harry?

***

Harry knew a world of people I never knew, so I know that many of his old friends and fellow musicians are still out there. If you knew Harry as a friend, student, or fellow musician, I am eager to hear from you by email or telephone. Thanks for linking all your drummer friends to this website in case any of them (or their parents) knew Harry.

For reasons explained in the book, there was much about Harry's professional life before I met him that he never told me about -- particularly for the years between 1956 and 1961. Thus, when I began to write the story of his life without him to query, it was like trying to put a huge "Harry Brabec Puzzle" together. One might think that after nearly 44 years together one would know everything about their spouse, but I was absolutely astounded by some of the things I learned about Harry in talking with friends of his I had never met before, and I've talked about this in my post, "Knowing Someone Like a Book."
