I started playing drums when i was 15. Its all by mistake because my high school gave me band instead of science and i either had to learn an instrument or change my class
What gear do you use?
ATM I'm use a Tama 4 piece swingstar kit with a custom paint job, Tama Iron Cobra double pedal, an random half broken cymbals
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Really any drummer i found doing a solo is what sold me on playing drums because i always wanted to do that, as for bands i got in to 70's funk, rock, country, an punk because of my dad's side and R&B, rap and metal because of my mom's side of the family, Earth, Wind & Fire was and is still one of my favorites
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Mind you i might not have named all my old bands but i did name the ones that mattered to me the most
S.I.P. was my very first band we never made anything worth listening too it was just me and my friend Matt jamming in the garage. We were: Shitty i guess would be the style
Shotgun Justice They found me on Xanga and i tried out and we recorded a few different times and played loads of places We were: Metal, Thrash at times
Amanda McCoy Knew her in high school she ask me to record on her EP. An then we played at our old high school as part of the talent show and then later for her college as a stand in drummer
Laid to rest Shotgun Justice played a show with them and they were kicking out there old drummer and got ahold of me via myspace played a few shows and never recorded with me in the band We were: Metal
Brokensaint Was once Idiot Proof a punk band my buddy was their drummer for. He was leaving for school so i filled in and then just took the spot as full time drummer we went through quite a few line-up changes and sound changes before becoming what we are today We are: Metal, Progressive Metal, Southern-Rock, Jam band at time
A.G.O.D Played a show with Brokensaint and they were kicking there old drummer out and got my number through another band have yet too play a show with them We are: Hard Rock
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
I really dont know i like to jam with anyone really. I guess maybe a mix of all my old bands A guitar player here a bassist here and singer here take all the best from each band and put in to one that would be sweet
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
