Playing Drums Since: 1981

Hobbies: Going to the movies and visiting microbreweries.

Favorite Movie: Indiana Jones & The Raiders of the Lost Arc.

Favorite Food: The holy trinity of tacos, pizza and dumplings. You can do anything with them. Chilaquiles may be the best thing on Earth!

Favorite Holiday Destination: Maui, HI

Favorite City: Tokyo, Japan.

Heroes: Buddy Rich! Brandon Thomas (Ripping Corpse) and Neil Peart.

First Paiste Cymbal: 16“ RUDE Crash.

Favorite Paiste Cymbal And Why: The Novo China. The best china made; sounds like no other. Warm, striking, sharp and smooth all at once.

First Drum Kit: Tama Swingstar

Favorite Car/Motorbike vs Your Ride: I love my Scion XD. I can fit my whole drum kit and a bicycle in it at once. I did a tour in it with Brain Tentacles as well (drums and sax duo).

Favorite Song (that you recorded): “Rev 101“ by Burnt By The Sun. I love the patterns in it; I got to think outside of the box a bit.

Your Best Ever Show/Recording Session: Drumming for the BOADRUM 88 where 88 drummers played at once conducted by The Boredoms.What an amazing experience! Drummers of all kinds came together and were a part of a giant beat. I would love to do it again anytime!

Favorite Conert Ever: Rush 20th Anniversary Tour.

If You Weren’t A Drummer, What Would You Be Doing?: Most likely brewing beer. I have always dreamt of being a firefighter, though.

Ritual/Routine Before a Show and/or Recording Session: I always eat chocolate before a set. I’m nuts about it and it puts me in a happy place. I also warm up with single strokes to get the blood flowing.

Do You Prefer Touring or Recording and Why?: I love feeding off the crowd in a live setting. It’s super-exciting and you never know what will strike you in the moment. I always play the songs how they are, but there are so many possibilities of having fun with them while playing live.

Recommendation For A Beginner: Start slow, develop good timing, it’s everything. Also, be open-minded to learning about all forms of music and drumming, you’ll have much more to work with. Try to jam with musicians that are more experienced whenever you can. You’ll learn a lot more and quickly.
