2.Who made you want to play drums and why?
Seeing music videos on TV as a kid, it seemed like the coolest instrument to play !
3.When did you get your first kit? Tell us about it…
I got my fist kit at 14 years old, it was an old worn out kit from the early 80’s always falling apart.
4.Where your parents supportive of you and your loud / expensive new habit?
My mom hated it and since i lived in an appartement building i could not play at home. However my friends parents were very supportive and let us play in their basement on weekends while they were out for groceries shopping.
5.What drum performance on an album is perfection to you?
Nothing’s ever perfect, you sometimes make mistakes and i think that sometimes those little mistakes make the performance special and unique.
6.Tell us about your current kit and set up in DETAIL.
I currently have a Gretcsh Catalyna Rock 3 piece kit with a 24 bass drum that i absolutely love, a Ludwig 8 inch snare, Sabian cymbals (Hats, one crash, one china and a Ride) and a DW 3000 double pedal.
7.If you could have a dream kit tell us about it in DETAIL
My dream kit would be a DW kit, two Bass Drums, two toms, two floors. Direct drive pedals and a lot of cymbals !
8.Name your top 5 drummers excluding Neil Peart and Mike Portnoy
9. Do you prefer Live or Studio?
I love both, but i prefer studio, better sound and you don’t have to worry about things that can go wrong like in a live setting.
10.Do drummers really get all the chicks and if so how do we convince the guitarist?
Hahaha, NO. C’mon, sweaty as hell dude do not get the chicks !!!
