Vineberg: Wedding bells ringing for the couple at the heart of In the Pocket
I’ve called Hooters drummer David Uosikkinen a lot in recent years, usually for all the wrong reasons. Because the gregarious Bristol Township native has played or shared ties with so many area musicians, he’s too often been my go-to interview when I’ve needed local reaction for in memoriam stories.
But when I reached out to him this week, it had nothing to with the death of Tom Petty, even though I knew Uosikkinen was friends with Heartbreakers drummer Steve Ferrone.
No, the reason for this call was entirely happy: the wedding of two people who have done as much as anybody to promote the Philadelphia music community over the last seven years.
