3. Drumming is simultaneously good and bad for you
One of the guys I met while researching my role was a congenitally blind young man named Jam. Well, he goes by Jam, anyway. I learned that's the perfect name for him when he told me edits braille texts by day, but tours as the drummer in a heavy metal band by night.
The guy is fearless...and has the hearing of an 80-year-old man. And it's a damn fine lesson that one less sense doesn't mean you can't do a ton with the others.
