Cash Wall' story is unique. Cash started out playing saxophone for The Downchild Blues Band and one night when the band's drummer didn't show up Cash played drums for the band ... eventually taking over the position. Cash became a student of the drums by listening to all of Donnie "Mr. Downchild" Walsh's old blues albums.
Cash was unorthodox ... but effective. He became a solid blues drummer with unusual flair ... having essentially learned to play from listening to old albums he also picked up on a lot of the quirks in the drumming style of those old blues drummers.
Cash played drums and acted as co-singer with The Kendall Wall Band until the end in 1993 ... forming a formidable rhythm section with bass player/co-singer Gary Kendall. Cash joked that he never practiced the drums .... only played them with the band.
Cash left the music business after the season ended at The Black Swan in 93 ... eventually returning to his hometown of Springfield, Missouri in 1995.
In 2009 Cash Wall lost his battle with cancer. The Way We Was: The Story of the Kendall Wall Band is dedicated to his memory and his musical legacy.
