Happy 65th Birthday, "Kid"

"When two drummers lock-up, they experience what is known in physics as coherence... Lock-up is characterized by the two drummers sounding exactly like one drummer."

In another use, coherence means "logic."
Seems ironic that a science chooses to equate logic with conformity to any other person's output.

"I relate locking-up to a quantum coherence effect recently discovered in physics. If you use a focused high power laser to make an electron and a positron at a point in space, they will fly off in opposite directions and seemingly be separate particles. Yet they still behave as though they were a single particle in the sense that if anything happens to one particle, the opposite will happen to the other particle. Physicists do not understand why this happens. So they gave it a name, entanglement, and then can say that it happens because of entanglement."

In some churches, they read things all together.
It seems they are creating a "lockup."

I notice your new name does not do justice to the long term drumming you have done on this list.
