Joseph Lamour Musician Dean Zimmer has quite an impressive story to tell. I hope I get to live half as great a life as he has.

Talk about an inspiration! Dean Zimmerman is certainly not a man to let the grass grow under his feet. This is a man who has turned what most would call a disability into an asset. He is a great drummer! Great find Judi!

You cannot currently send a star to Tamara because you have done so within the last day.

I was listening to Deodato playing Whirlwinds as I was watching this. Amazing guy. We are truly only limited by what we choose to limit ourselves by.

The funny part is that is drumming was actually syncopated with the song. lol

So what is holding him back? Why is he not a member of a successful band? It can't be talent based can it? Differently abled but still not mainstreamed. I'd like a world where his talent spoke and the rest was a side note. I don't see that in this video, I wish I did. That would be a better world.

Excellent observations Gene of how much further progress needs to go despite laws guaranteeing equal rights since about the time he was born.You cannot currently send a star to Gene because you have done so within the last day.
