What you may not know:"…drum was his first choice when…asked what he wanted to play at…High School. But, 'Everybody in the school band wanted to play drums.' Since Ron Howard's character on TV's "Happy Days" played saxophone in the band at Arnold's drive-in, Edmaiston decided, 'If I can't play drums, I guess I can be Richie Cunningham. I started on the tenor sax in the sixth grade and never gave up.'"(Source: CommercialAppeal.com)
