Favorite MEINL cymbal:

His name is Michael Nowak, but I've learned from all the drumgods: John Bonham, Jim Keltner, Tommy Lee, Keith Moon, Frank Beard
Highlight of your career so far:
Wow tricky, but when we played the big stage at Rock Am Ring, that was really cool 'cause the crowd was roaring that day!
I'm a hardhitter with a big beat but often I still manage to get a steady groove as well, I think that's good!!
Drumming means to me:
It's a way of life for me. If I wasn't a professional drummer. I'd still be playing drums almost everyday because it's so damn fun!
Advice for up and coming drummers:
Try to stay true to yourself, practice, be on time and stay away from drugs!
How would you describe yourself:
I'm a fairly happy person and easy going with good people skills, but if I don't get food I turn into a monster.
When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:
I would be glad if people said that I was a fun person to play with and of course that they liked my way of playing drums.
