Our Lady Peace's Jeremy Taggart drummed up pro baseball interest

A few weeks ago, I was invited to do Off The Record with Michael Landsberg and was stoked to discover that one of the other guests was Jeremy Taggart, the outstanding drummer from the Canadian alternative rock band Our Lady Peace.

The chance to connect with someone like Taggart was exciting because, well, like a lot of other guys, I always wanted to be a drummer. From the time I was as big as a cat, I’ve pounded on tables, desks, dashboards ... anything, anytime, anywhere, basically non-stop. The only time I’m not tapping is in my sleep, and even then I’m not sure. My daughter Bubba grew up thinking she was a cymbal. I should have named her Zildjian.
