    In the late 80s, early 90s, I was struck by how the drummer of Fine Young Cannibals would play a trap kit, and stared at it intently as if it required every ounce of concentration. Meanwhile, Charlie would just kind of look around the room while he played.

    You listen to Charlie - he's thumping up a storm. Then you look at him, and you feel like telling him to "burn a calorie, Charlie!"

    So cool.

    One of my heroes.

    Happy birthday Charlie, and thanks for a lifetime of enjoyable thumpdom.
    Perhaps finding the happy medium is harder than we know.
