We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"It’s been in my family since I was a kid, my God brother owned a 7 Piece USA Custom (stop sign Badge) w/a wine woodgrain finish, which he still has until this very day, it was the first complete set of drums I brought with my own money."

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"If we are to be the foundation of the band, strive to be an island and be careful not to be a raft."
