When I was growing up my dad would put 45 RPMs and 33 RPMs on the huge big stereo that we had in this family room growing up in Orange County California. One day you put on something by Floyd Cramer and said can you play like him I need to plan it back and forth till finally I got the hang of how he hits the Grace notes and how we played. A lot of my piano playing style was modeled after Floyd Cramer.
