He, at that time was following his love of music while playing drums for his big brother, Lawrence in the Powder River Band. They traveled throughout Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota. Many people came to listen to him play and sing. Being the humble man he was he never thought that he could play or sing well.
