Art is one’s legacy. When we create art a piece of our soul is infused in the work and when we leave this planet it remains for others to cherish our energy.

Jimmy Smith affectionately known as Jimmy Buckets based on his prowess behind a drum kit (and sometimes plastic construction buckets) left this world in February of 2017 due to reported heart failure. In this episode of Conversations with Calcaterra, Ken is joined by Jimmy’s bandmates from Nervous Pudding; Josh Lawson (guitar), John Nicholas (drums), Dave Shelton (bass) and Jordan McCallister (bass) to celebrate the life of their former front man and discuss their shared adventures and art.
