Highlight of your career so far:

So many to list... I've been a lucky boy! Playing huge festivals, doing arena tours, recording in world famous studios is all good but getting some sticks with my signature printed on them is still the coolest!!!

Drumming strengths:

Volume! I'm pretty loud! Oh and I can throw a stick up pretty high and catch it again while playing!

Drumming means to me:

That it is possible to be in love with your profession.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Play with your heart and be a nice guy/girl... You can be the most technical drummer in the world but you won't get a gig unless you play with passion and try not make the tour bus an awkward place to be.

How would you describe yourself:

Super nice guy armed with a couple of sticks.

When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:

That was frikkkkkin sweeeeeeet!
