Best Riffs Only: Krayolas Going For Tex-Mex Rock & Roll Master's

The Krayolas play a free in-store at Cactus Music at 5:30 p.m.

Krayolas drummer David Saldana is not your average power-pop rock and roller. While his resuscitated band continues to draw gobs of press and is grabbing some high profile gigs, Saldana's life is taking him in another direction.

"I'm actually getting my Masters in education so I can be a principal," says Saldana from his home in San Antonio.

He goes on to explain that he's been involved with the Diabetes Research Center for the past 20 years, and has been involved in some of the largest National Institute of Health studies regarding the disease. He actually spent a year working in Austin to help with funding new testing programs.
