DM went to Shenandoah University (Then Shenandoah College and Conservatory) a few years before I attended. He was invited to leave after his sophomore screening juries. Rumor had it he showed up to his jury stoned out of his mind and could not play. I suspect this is just an old wives tale, but far be it for me to not pass it on.It wasn’t for me a long time ago...but when I was in HS we did a “coffee house” as a small group orchestra (I was a tuba/sax player) and we did a 3 song DMB set. Had to listen to understand what I was playing, and I fell in love.
