    R.I.P. Dino Danelli - Some of you may be old enough to remember this famous rock drummer. At the very least, you've probably played the hit song Good Lovin' a million times like I have, lol. This song from his world-renowned band, The Rascals.

    "Dino Danelli, whose hard-charging, high-energy drumming powered the Rascals to a string of hits in the late 1960s, including the No. 1 records “Good Lovin’,” “Groovin’” and “People Got to Be Free,” died on Thursday in Manhattan. He was 78." ... See full New York Times article below.

    WOW, I did not know that Dino Passed away!! R.I.P. - a real showman and excellent Drummer. I'm 71 yo, and Dino was one of my favorites and a driving force for me to take up the Drums in 1966. I stopped in 1969 - the 3 HS buddies in a Garage Band (never got out of the garage to play a Gig :(:(), and didn't resurrect playing until 50 Years Later. I still can't play Good Lovin' with the ability Dino did. Grateful Dead's Version - Yes, but not the Rascals.
