For Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell, the workday starts around 10 in the morning, when he arrives at Royal Studios to start miking up the drums.

In the past week, two interesting things have happened. First, I was asked the question, “What advice would you give your younger self?” Then, I attended my high school reunion. Walking through the old halls of my high school brought back memories of where it all started. Needless to say, both moments made me think about the past and what advice I would give a young person today.
