    1940's...

Steve Gadd was born April 9th, 1945 in Rochester , N.Y.
At age three his Uncle Eddie (a former army drummer) gave
him his first pair of sticks and a round piece of wood, which
was his practice pad. While listening to the radio they would
play along to John Phillip Sousa marches and others.

Four years later he started his first private studies with
Elmer Frolig
at Levis Music, which was right across the
street from The Eastman School Of Music.
