  1. haha. Great post. Will the real Joe Kim please stand up?

  2. Love it...even with a less common name like Mehul Sheth, there is actually a doc down in Louisiana with the same name. In fact he is in a band that put out an album. A couple years ago I pinged him and he was nice enough to send me a copy. When I want to throw my friends for a loop, I pull out the album and show them that I am also an accomplished drummer!
