Charlie started out his musical career playing the drums. He wanted to be a rock star and found the drums to be the key to that lifestyle. Although his Mother made him learn the Piano, Charlie saved up his allowance to buy himself a great set of drums.
He did get his wish, he became a great rock star, living the life and also ruining it. He sadly turned into drugs to keep up with the adrenaline. His down spiral should have lead him to his death, but God had a purpose for him.
I met Charlie when I joined the Choir, just heard about his life story during one of our retreats. I never knew him as the speed addict he used to be. Charlie to me will always be the one spreading God’s word behind his Yamaha digital pianos at musicians friend.
