    Great video Rick. That druming was really neat. The man that sang Bang on the Drum All Day was Todd Rundgren. The song came out in 1983. That is before my time, but I got from I watched you videos of the Disney Fantacy, and I have a question… Do the Disney cruise ships have a “Grand Staircase”? Please answer. Thanks Nick. See you next Rick.

    Cool!!!! Great video guys! The drummers must be in great physical shape. Yep, Todd Rundgren on the song. That was a fun time in my life. Thanks for a great video once again!

    Wow, I had no idea that was originally a Todd Rundgren song. My brother lives by it. He’s a professional drummer.
    I love to catch the shows at Epcot. It gives more flavor to the pavillions to have the music and the foods of each nation. I love Epcot.
    As always, I can’t wait to see what you have to show us next.

    Hey Rick,
    That was a great video. I really enjoyed it. These drummers are great! I’ve got a question for you. I noticed that these drummers were all women. In the old Japanese Culture are both men and women allowed to be drummers? Or was it only done by men? Or women?

    As for your question of the week. The song was written and performed by Todd Rundgren. The song and the performer don’t ring a bell with me. I don’t know how I missed it. I graduated from college in 1982. It seems that I would have been listening to that kind of music when the song came out.

    See you next week.
