Mary Hvsida lives near La Crosse, Wis., and as you can tell, she’s been playing drums since she was 15. Every few months, the 63 year old pops into a local drum shop, plays the drums, then leaves. No one really knew who she was, until a video of her playing went viral this week. Since her last band broke up 13 years ago, Mary says she gets the urge to play every now and again.
“Beware of Mr. Baker,” a film detailing the life and music of drummer Ginger Baker, is a documentary as entertaining and impressive as one of Mr. Baker’s solos. It features loads of playing footage, and considerable commentary (both funny and heart-breaking) from the man himself.
This little five year old is amazing!
