    now that youve seen his drumming read his story
    On August 6th 2006 I was violently attacked while in a bar. A drunk man tried to kill me by hitting me in the head with a bar stool. I feel down a flight of stares and recieved futher brain and spinial damage,ripping my nose from my face and busting my teeth. I had to learn how to walk, talk, eat, read, write, drive, stand up straight on my own, etc, etc and yes... play drums all over again. In September 2006 I still didnt even know what a drum stick was called or what it was even used for. I taught myself how to play again. This video was recorded four months later on one of my first live performances with brain and spinial damage.
    When this was recorded, I still couldnt read, write, walk correctly, drive, dress myself, or talk correctly.
    So, to all of you cridicts, youtube haters, and hardcore jazzers with something to prove, I wanna say thanks for your negative comments.
    You inspire me to practice more, and chuckle a bit too.
    God Bless,
    Billy Canty
    play till the day i die. it makes more sense that way.

    Not meaning to take to much liberty, that video made a huge "Impression" on me. Some of you may know what I mean but, for those who may not, "Impressions" is a John Coltrane composition which a lot of jazz groups continue to play today. That was the tune in this video and Billy Canty expertly demonstrated his "Impression" of how to play along to that tune. Watching him makes me want to bring back my trio and play long and well into the night. There are no boundaries when it comes to the what the Spirit inside of each of us wants to do. It is only ourselves who hold us back and it is only ourselves who set us free. Thank you, Billy Canty, for your courage and reminder of what all of us can do for ourselves.
