Advice for up and coming drummers:

Don’t just practice what you’re good at, practice the stuff you AREN’T good at. Never give up. Don’t be afraid to be yourself behind the kit; Everyone on the planet will be able to blast beat at 300bpm in 2020, but only you will be able to do it whilst playing a 3:2 rumba clave with your left foot…I’m going to go try that now though so just me and you…And everyone that reads this…DAMN.

A nerd.
