Billy Hart doesn’t see jazz as being split between avant-garde and straight-ahead; for him, the big distinction is between acoustic and electric. And given the drummer’s endless list of associations during a career that stretches back to the 1960s, his view should be afforded a bit more than passing credence.

Having a quality car is necessary and maintaining it is also necessary. It is sad when one acquires a good car and loves the car so much and suddenly the need to drop such arises. The truth is that irrespective of how much we maintain the car we love, it can never last forever as we may expect. According to the half-life theory, every material on earth made by made has its life-span and that applies to the metals used in the manufacturing of that your favorite car, which simply means the car has its expiring date. When the expiring date is reached the car will start suffering from metal fatigue a good sign that gives rise to metallic rust and internal cracking of the metal sheets of the car body. You now see the reason it will not last forever. The fatigue and depreciation of the car bodies and other major parts including the gearbox have nothing to do with the expiring date of its engine, be it new or old car engine.


The car’s transmission takes power from the engine to the road wheels. On a front-engine rear-wheel-drive CAR it consists of a clutch or a torque converter fixed to the engine flywheel, then a gearbox, propeller shaft and final drive unit which splits the output in half, to drive each rear wheel.
