Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceHonestly, at our last show. The crowd was so crazy and the energy was insane, so I was throwing in some new fills and had so much fun. Adrenaline!!!
What Drives Your Creativity?Traveling really does fuel me. So does going to other live shows and seeing other drummers/bands do their thing.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?When playing shows all around the world on different kits everyday, I pickup my Extreme 5B sticks and it feels like home. They are the perfect weight and length for my playing and they last FOREVER. Also Ben and Joe are the nicest dudes ever. It feels like a family with every hang and email.
