He's the guy who wrote the Saxophone Manual (Haynes Pub.) I love this book, but I caught an error, kind of. He states on page 121: "leaving the pads wet after playing doesn't help [the saxophone] either, but it is impractical to dry each a every one." Not so, I dry each and every pad two times a day. Swabbing the sax and neck and then drying each pad does take about five to eight minutes, but it's what I do.
