Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceThe first time a mosh-pit broke out during one of my band's performances, I felt like the intensity I'd always felt when playing my band's songs had transferred to the crowd and we were truly sharing in the performance.
What Drives Your Creativity?I just love playing great songs. The song trumps everything, from getting to play crazy chops or polyrhythms. I just want to elevate a great song.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?They feel perfectly weighted and smooth to grip, and they respond to drums well without feeling stiff or vibrating too much. They feel VERY musical to me.
