Anonymous asked: Would you ever do a drum clinic?
ehhhhhhh probably not. I just dont think I’d have anything particularly insightful to share in a group setting. I’d be much more into the idea of sitting one on one with somebody and talking drums
Anonymous asked: Have you set up any local shows?
its been a while. I had some very fun shows in my parents garage back in the day.
My favorite was Joyce Manor, Koalacuast, Paul Baribeau in July 2009. Somebody took some great videos from that lovely day:

Sorry to hear that. Stay busy, hang out with the people who love you, maybe start a World of Warcraft account and take comfort in being a dual wielding Dwarven Paladin until the pain goes away.
Anonymous asked: My folks are making me sell my drum kit and I was wondering if there's an alternate way to keep my chops up besides using just a practice pad.
Sorry to hear that! In their defense, drums are probably the most annoying instrument when played alone and they take up a lot of space. If you can convince them to let you hang onto your kit and in return put a set of Evans Sound Off Drum mutes on them, you’ll both be at peace. I spent the first year of my drumming days playing a kit with mutes on it and in addition to eliminating 80% of the sound, they actually improve your chops because they have less rebound than an actual drum head. If that’s out of the question, buy the biggest marching sticks you can find (my
favs are Vater 3S, they are seriously tree trunks) and practice rudiments on a super plush pillow that has zero rebound. Your chops will all sorts of blazin’. Keep playing!
