Hi Pete!

Big hugs from Spain! I know you are a Toledo fan, but when you come there, please, honour us with your presence too in Valencia, I have no doubt you´ll like it!

Here is where I live, not even 100 meters behind this huge gate!




Get well!!

Best regards!

Alex

Thank you, Alex. My wife
and daughter were there
the summer before last,
believe it or not. I was
not with them.

My life is so different, now...
a struggle to get through
the most simple tasks. I
have had to build a routine
and focused on bringing
in the support for my
family despite.

I have such great memories
of your inspiration.





Thank you.

Regards,

Dear Pete,

It´s always great to hear about you.

Just yesterday I was in Madrid (for two days). I haven´t been there since 1984 (while passing by on my way to Germany). Wow, I was amazed about how great "the capital" looks today, also was in Rome exactly a year ago, ´though been there not so long ago (really enjoyed it too). Other wise very much staying mostly in Valencia.

Since back in the day technology kept improving and currently I have often students from USA (here you can read some about it: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=133313&highlight=coach ).

In any case, thank you for your updates and please check out your PM box!.

Best,

Alex

Hi Pete, just thought of you and thought this picture I took while in Kenya, Africa reminds us that there is light and hope in all chapters of our life.

God bless you and your family,
Bro, Rac

Thank you, all.

In this new year, I am prayer-
ful that some direction to our
lives can come.  So much has
happened to us and the people
that I know - dear friends...
It has been a virtual showering
of misfortune: one thing after
another. Still, I am alive. I
honestly do not know how I
can be here, now, but I am.

I am in the darkest room,
holding a candle and it lights
only the portion just in front,
just beside and just behind me,
I am proceeding very slowly.
My family is following me. I
am crippled but I must go on.

Thanks for thinking of me. I
hope that I can be more pre-
sent with you.

I am sure your lives continue
and as always, my very best
wishes for you - my brethren.

Many, many, many blessings.

Regards,

P

How is everyone? Not to put
you on the spot but just a note
on things in your life. Are you
healthy - you and your families?

I hope so. Without health, we
can have little else.

When you get a chance.

Love,

P

I can also walk backwards fast.

Billy Cobham told me to  take it easy  (Sept  2016)
Its my fault I should take a list when I see him,
to save time,
Next time I will have a list.

I Eat a Fresh Salad with  every meal

In our Supermarkets they
are Fresh Salads in plastic
case £1.  House Salads  Prepared,


In Music I am  at a better level
thanks to USA 4.1 SACD's  taken from  Official  Quad Tapes
Like Mahavishnu Orchestra  Birds Of Fire SACD 4.1

and his floor toms closer.
Also SACD 5.1 ,DVDA 7.1 ,   DTS 5,1 Disc,

And 24bit Japan CD's are quality,

Billy Cobham "Magic" on a rare 24bit Japan Fusion 1000 Collection

It´s always good to hear from this great friend of us all, Pete Corona!

As we all know, as we get older we tend to confront with more issues than when we were younger. Fortunately the medicine keeps evolving and thanks to some scientists we have more chances to still be here... TIME IS ON OUR SIDE...

I remember like it was today (in 1970, just a few months before I started playing drums) when I was 12 and they took out my apendix, before the XXth century I would have not been alive anymore...but because things evolved I´m fortunately to still enjoy life.

Myself, I´m doing more or less the same I did all my life, which is studying, teaching and playing...just the percentage of them changes from time to time.


Best to all!

Colin and Alex,

Good to hear from both of you.

Good routines, Colin. Excellent.
Glad to see you here and about.

We're all the better having had
your great example, Alex. We
all look up to you.

You are right. There is a benefit
to science and we are the evid-
ence of it.

You are so kind. I hope to be
in touch more often.

I am working (doing my ec-
onomic analysis for the clients
and can support the family
with that. It can be drudgery
sometimes but it is the lonely
circumstance that hurts the
most, as I am not with the
family (the house cannot
be managed by me because
it is too tight and does not
have a dedicated bathroom
and other things that I need).
I am working towards being
able to find another home
for all of us. They visit but
it is not the same.

They are going through things
too. I have a 12-year old girl.
You can imagine. My son is
18. I hardly see him. Again,
it can  be tough being alone.

I do go into the hospital and
clinic twice a week and am
practicing with the new fit-
ting and this is the one be-
fore the final that I get to
take home in the future.
The insurance company
does not want to pay the
86K bill but after, through
the years, having paid some
$600K in bills, you'd think
they would just shut up and
pay it. Instead, they raised
my premium and now, each
two months, I pay $4,500
to keep my family covered.

Sad

Anyway... life in the big
city for us.

It can be frustrating.

I have worked on brushes
some and am proud of that
work, at least. I work on
sticking and rudiments and
stuff and that is OK. I miss
not having my right leg.

Well, thanks for sharing.
I love you guys. Thank
heaven we have had this
time together.

See you, again, soon.

Regards,



P

Dear Pete,

Congrats, I can see you are getting great command in your walking!

Practicing brushes can be very entertaining, and you can do it much more silent than with sticks and pads, and actually anywhere, like "the classic": over the phone book. You´ll find tons of great videos around, ad to your style all the brush strokes that you feel are "cool".



Don´t hesitate to contact us!

Best,

Alex

Thinking of you since I first heard of your illness. Hang in there, Pete! About one year ago I was in Madeira Portugal and saw a man who I thought looked so much like you, I almost was about to ask if it's you! Smile
Best wishes! Niki
