Drum Corps Planet user njthundrrd recently posted a thread in the site’s discussion forums linking Bill Cook’s 2011 obituary and asking for other users’ stories about Bill Cook.

I am reposting my article as a little Throwback Thursday look back… Continue reading Throwback Thursday – I Did Not Know Bill Cook
