Dale Cook

Our musical community lost a friend and colleague to a freak accident.  Drummer Dale Cook played with Peter Nero and Doc Severinsen, among others.  He was a first call session player, and can still be heard on many familiar sports themes, network production tracks, and ads.  Upon reflection I realized that he played on every one of my recording sessions over a 35 year period.  He delivered the life, the soul, and the groove - no matter the style of music.  A consummate practical joker, he had a wonderfully mischevious sense of humor.  A great talent, a great guy, and a great loss. The music lives on.
