    I’ve always been a huge fan of halftime shows at USC. Whenever I’m at a home game, that’s the one time I don’t get up for drinks or food. I’ve always thought of the band as a hard-working unit, just like the football team that doesn’t get the recognition they deserve. 🙂 So, thanks CHG for posting such a great read.

    Completely agreed Jason.

    Being in the high school band, and drum major for last two years of that, along with touring with USC’s band as one of their student-Equipment Managers, I got to see first-hand the amount of work (torture?) that each and every band member goes through.

    Much like a football team they do indeed put in full days of grueling work, sweating it out with the rest of them.

    I also happen to know Dick Goodwin, and served as the set-up guy for his Quartet while I was in college. Great guy, great composer, great choice for an article too 🙂
