I knew Dan Pistello when he was just a kid and he used to be friends with someone that lived on the second floor apartment of where I lived and I used to practice my drums on the first floor of the same apartment and when he’d go visit his friend he’d hear me rehearsing. Anyhow, to make a long story short his father was a musician and they were looking for a drummer and Dan mentioned that a guy that lived below his friends house played drums. And one day Dan’s dad come over to my apartment and introduced himself and told me that his band Blues Gumbo was seeking a drummer and I joined them. We did a combination of Blues covers and eventually created original material and we had tons of fun and people really dug our band, but eventually we disbanded and went our separate ways and I recall giving Dan a kick pedal and at that time which was around 1995 when Dan became interested in playing drums and many years later I saw him drumming for CoJack and I was truly impressed because I had no idea that he would stick it out with the drums but he did, and now to hear him with The Hallow in the Rituals of The Moon, which I dig, I am very happy that he’s still drumming because he obviously loves to play them and is sounding excellent at it. So Dan, keep following your bliss and I wish you nothing but the best with The Hallow band.
