Arrived in New York to join a famous established band as a drummer. Didn't realize that they all left in 1948. Started a series of my own bands under the Royal Manhattan name, and then the Jack Twomey Big Band
Never became famous or made a living, other than by my nine to five day job in publishing, but had a good time playing with some fine musicians.
