Ive always been OBSESSED with drums. I got my first pair of wooden spoons and some chairs to hit at the age of 12. Finally got a kit aged 14. Got my first noise pollution complaint two weeks later. Many bands later I am now proud to be the drummer for Kaiser Chiefs and to have the opportunity to make noise globally.
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceA couple of years back we headlined the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury. That performance blew my mind. Everything felt right and the energy of the crowd was like nothing I’d ever experienced either on stage or watching a show.
What Drives Your Creativity?Music is a part of me. It follows me everywhere. I never have silence anywhere. Being around like-minded people and having the knowledge that together as a band we can create something that can change a person’s life is something that has always inspired me.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?Their array of products is incredible. They are a company with a rich history and as people have always treated me with respect and friendliness. It’s an honour to be a part of the family.
