    Chuck Silverman was an extremely kind and generous human being and a gifted
    drumist. I had the pleasure of meeting Chuck in the 1980’s. His lesson books are at the top of my pile next to my practice kit. I am very sad to hear about his passing. Will keep the torch burning Chuck.

    I had the great pleasure of traveling to Cuba with Chuck in 2010. It was a life changing experience. His passion for the music and the culture of Cuba was infectious. I am really going to miss a great musician and a dear friend.
