Each one of my limbs are as independent as they are accurate, and I like to hit the drums hard.
Drumming means to me:
Why have people been drawn to the sound of dead skins being beaten to a pulp for so many years? Maybe because you can create a whole world of sounds as well as completely changing the feel of any song with the power of percussion. To me, drums are a tool I use to stretch my body and mind. I'm always looking to find out how I can be a better drummer.
Advice for up and coming drummers:
I would say try and find your own unique style and go with it.
How would you describe yourself:
I'm a pretty laid back guy- very easy to get along with.
When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:
I am the best at something in the world.
