                          Killer snare drum sound...actually, they are tuned beautifully but in the end, it comes down to the musician playing them and you're incredible!!

                            You are amazing. I have never broke a snare head but I have a broke (or rather the pedal) a bass head, had the cymbal stand happen once and floor toms falling more times than I can count. Again, my compliments to you.

                                It was only a matter of time before that snare head broke, it was in bad shape. You really need your heads changed more often

                                          Wow that was great! If you want my opinion, It's time for you to move up a step with the band your playing with! You have everything anyone would be looking for in a drummer, You play much like my brother did! I wish I could only be half as good as he was but that has not happened and I don't think it ever will! I wish the cruses that I went on had a drummer like you when I went!. And I see your still only in your early twenties! Damn ! That just pisses me off as I was never even close to that or am I still at playing as well as you have!
                                          I don't really take the time to write to anyone other than the people who just impressed the he!! out of me. Really nice video, You do plan on doing more videos right, It would be a shame to keep that from the people who have yet to see you play. I will keep watching for you name to come up in the future, At bigger and better gigs! Thanks for posting your video!

                                                    I like to listen to the views of real 'blue collar' type like Stephen Taylor and this fella; they give us q real insight as to what it;s actually like to be a working drummer.

All I gotta say is enjoy it while you can! The travel will never be so vast and easy. Question...who is that in your ear? Like counting you off?

They should have a small studio onboard so you can break in new songs and band mates. Best regards Tiger from Norway!

Always nice always enthusiastic and fun. No singer or lead guitar halo. Just lovely people. They are what really makes a band.
