When you are young, sometimes you want to show off and you play too much.
When the hell are you supposed to meet someone? Now the pressure is done, you're meeting like-minded people Typically, the swimmers are some of the lucky ones who wrap up early. For Lochte, that typically means "hitting a local pub and drinking with the soccer hooligans," he says. But a teammate in Athens had a better idea: I said, 'No, I'm innocent,'" Lochte says, laughing. But what most Olympians want, in the end, is to bring the party back to the village. The athlete compound soon becomes the site of an uneasy dance between jocks on a post-competition bender and those who have yet to compete.
Says Swiss swimmer Dominik Meichtry: They're getting on a bus and we're intoxicated, wearing fedoras, looking like crap. Displaced roommates become commonplace, with the standard sock-on-doorknob serving as the signal for "please go away. When they go out for a drink, it's 20 drinks. With a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you want to build memories, whether it's sexual, partying or on the field.
I've seen people having sex right out in the open. On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty. At the Lillehammer Games intwo German bobsledders tried using their medals as currency.

I'll play with his. One skier tells a story from the Vancouver Games inwhen six athletes -- "some Germans, Canadians and Austrians" -- got together at a home outside the Whistler village. It turned into a whirlpool orgy.
This time, when I'm done leaving my legacy on the track, I'll make sure London remembers me. They look for a challenge, like having sex with someone who doesn't speak their language. At the Montreal Games, three-time Olympic diver and four-time gold medalist Greg Louganis, appearing in his first Olympics at age 16, developed a kinship with the boys on the Soviet Union diving team and soon found himself partying in their rooms. It was crazy," Louganis says. He was particularly struck by the Russians' sense of sexual liberation.
But I had my eyes on one Soviet. I'd curl up in his lap; we'd hug and cuddle. I felt so protected. By the eve of the closing ceremonies, all of the events have wrapped, all bets are off and the home team often hosts one hell of a party. That was certainly the case in Sydney, where Australia's baseball and women's soccer teams threw a joint bash complete with a massive bonfire.

And that was the PG stuff. Then everything went inside. Somewhere in the middle of this party, typically, is America's women's soccer team, whose tournament runs the duration of the Games. Solo recounts the story: Vince Vaughn partied with us. Steve Byrne, the comedian. And at some point we decided to take the party back to the village, so we started talking to the security guards, showed off our gold medals, got their attention and snuck our group through without credentials -- which is absolutely unheard of.
But that's my Olympic secret. Needless to say, we looked like hell. For a few and the most committed, the games continue -- all the way home.
On a United Airlines flight from Sydney to Los Angeles innearly Olympians were among the passengers, causing the flight attendants to begin the flight with a warning: Everybody else to the back with the Olympians. I accidentally turn on the assistance light. When did you start playing in a band?
When I was 17, I studied with Ted Curson. I played in his band on Monday nights at Birdland. There was Kenny Barron and his brother Bill2 on saxophone. We played with another band.
Every club had two bands in those days. Ted was so nice to introduce me to John Coltrane Jazz Hot Coltrane took my hand looking into my eyes.
He was so warm. Such a beautiful experience. I had met Sonny the day before at the rehearsal. He asked me if I could play the calypso. So I played the calypso. He was one of my heroes.
Albert Dailey was on the piano. I was so nervous because Tony Williams was there with his band and I had to play on his drums.

But only a few musicians came to New York each year. Today I could never make it like I did. I don't envy young guys because there are fewer clubs and everybody is good because of education. I miss the great Sonny Rollins.
I don't care who comes out now. Who can be the new John Coltrane? Coltrane is the school I did. There would be no universities promoting jazz without Coltrane, Monk or Miles.
This is the difference between having studied jazz history at school and having studied jazz with the musicians who made history I played just with everybody. Monk, Ornette, Coltrane, etc. I was very lucky. I played with him maybe seven months. The very first gig was at the Village Gate for two weeks.
Ed Blackwell was the original drummer of the band but just before the opening night he was rushed to the hospital. And Victor Gaskin bwho was in the band with Charlie Rouse tscalled me up.
He hired me for one night. Monk didn't talk to me, but he must have said to Victor to keep me for the two-week engagement. It was my first serious gig for the money.
The second week, Monk brought me to his house. He talked through his teeth to me impersonating Monk. He talked about the drums, the critics He was very kind to me.
He was a great man. Every weekend he was there and we would talk about jazz. Two or three month later he asked me to play in his band. I thought that we would play jazz because he talked about Art Blakey, Philly Joe. He loved Philly Joe. He really missed him. When he had to let him go, it made him sick. How did you adjust? So I was fortunate to have been able to give him what he wanted. And so he called me again.
When you are young, sometimes you want to show off and you play too much. But I always said to myself: So far it worked for me. Did you stay in touch with Miles when he retired from the stage?
Yes, I went to see him many times.My Friends Call Me Tony
Sometimes Tony Williams came by. Miles told me impersonating Miles Davis: He was very brave at that time. I was traveling a lot, so he would phone me up. You played with him before and after his retirement from the stage.
Was there a difference between the two periods? I enjoyed the music of the second band much better. It was totally different from I liked Marcus Miller Jazz Hot He was a very nice kid.
He was a very young guy, 21, 22, and a brilliant musician. The first band, even today, I can't listen to it. It was a sort of free I'm not a rocker. I don't know why Miles liked me so much.
When he came back, I was touring with Sonny Rollins. It was a shock. First, he called me to record The Man With the Horn. It was almost 3 pm.
That evening I had a gig with Freddie Hubbard. When I told Miles I had to go, to play with Freddie, he said: And he came by.
Everybody in the audience was watching him! Nobody had seen Miles for a long time. It was so funny. You are the musician who played with Miles the longest Yes. I stayed thirteen years in his band, until March Miles called me again in and I played on his record Amandla4 the tune that Marcus Miller wrote for Jaco Pastorius. Miles called me and said that he wanted to make a record the day after.
And I don't know why but I asked: I didn't know anything about the music. Miles and Marcus had already put the track down, but I never played such a track before. And I always play live. When I got there, Marcus told me to listen to the tune and let him know when I was ready to play.
The next day, he called me and said: And then I played one of his last gigs on July 10, in Paris.
He died on September I made more money with that Paris gig than any other gigs. Big money for fifteen minutes laughs. In fact, except for your collaboration with Miles, you have always played straight-ahead jazz Jazz-rock has never been me. I am not a rock drummer. I don't like myself playing that music. I get the chorus.
We mainly recorded together. He used Ron Carter and me on these records.
Will you still medal in the morning?
And we did a gig every year or every year and a half. I remember that we did some gigs at Jazzmobile. I was so honored to work with him. Horace Silver is one of my heroes. He and Monk were my favorite piano players when I was young. He was a very nice guy. I miss him, but I think it is what happens to everybody when you get older.
When did you meet Max Roach Jazz Hot ? One day, he called me: This is Max Roach. Who are you, man? I never met him before. My drums are there, you can use them. He just hired me for one night. Max had done the opening night, the day before. So I arrived early.
Freddie Hubbard Jazz Hot arrived. I knew him so I told him:
