Eddie Marshall

Last week the world lost an amazing and talented drummer, Mr. Eddie Marshall. The entire thing feels so very unreal to me. Last year I had the pleasure of working with him every Thursday afternoon, his insight into working with a singer and rhythm was amazing. Eddie was laid back […]
