Bill Hein grew up just north of Washington, DC in the Rockville/Silver Spring area – Wheaton to be exact. Bill found the percussive bug at age 4 in his Mom’s kitchen, banging her pots and pans. At age 7, his Dad introduced him to Buddy Rich on the Merv Griffin Show, and that was it!
“I am so thankful for the support of my Mom and Dad. They gave me lessons; they encouraged me. I’ve been fortunate to have been surrounded by really good teachers and players throughout the many years of playing these things called drums. As much as I love playing, it wouldn’t matter without the love and support of my family. My wife, Jan, of 31 years – she’s always been right there. Our three wonderful children – Jake, Taylor, and Luke. I’m a blessed man. Thank you, Greg and Brandee Rowles and Brad and LaDonna Alexander for thinking of me to be part of this incredible experience. To the audience reading this…hop on board, and let’s all have a marvelous time. Blessings. – Bill”
