The Little Flag That Could

Your Bio

"It’s still a thrill to see your happy faces behind the flag."
-- Stewart Copeland, 15 November 2007


From May 2007 to August 2008, a humble green flag stalked a mop-haired drummer with a penchant for composition and an overzealous pointing reflex around the world.

So 'round and 'round the globe it roamed. Where did it stop? Not so far from where it began. But along the way, oh, the places it did go.

Herein lies that drummer, that humble green flag, and just a few of the happy faces behind it.
