Will Kerr

Drums: About me and music. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. In the later 60s the music and bands from there was like a gunshot heard the world over.  As a teenager, I became obsessed with bands like the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe and the Fish, Big Brother and the Holding Company and The  Sons of Champlin. Inspired by them, I learned  guitar and drums and played in high school garage bands. It's an old passion that I still carry to this day. Through the decades I have played with many Palouse region bands, covering pretty much all genres of musical styles. Playing with Henry C and the Willards is a pleasure . With them I find comradery and a great selection of original and cover songs.
