"I used to fool with them when he wasn't around. And I've been on the road now going on 68 years. I've been on the road since I was 12 years old. There was a show called Major Bowes' Original Amateur Hour in New York. It was like American Idol, but bigger. I won the contest and since then, I've been on the road."Growing up, Gibbs demonstrated musical ability by the age of two, and began studying the xylophone by age seven. He played with his father’s group at weddings and bar mitzvahs, and even won the Major Boles Amateur Hour on the radio at age twelve.

He continued playing drums while in the army, but was more enthusiastic about competing as a boxer, fighting in twenty-two matches.
