We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"Gretsch has always been the ultimate drum company to me. The majority of my favorite drummers and influences played Gretsch at some point in their careers, and they seem to always sound and just be in a league of their own. It is my greatest honor as a professional drummer to be a part of the Gretsch Family."

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Make sure to check out and study the legendary drummers from the past and not just the guys in the spotlight at the moment. They are the foundation of the drumming language. Without their influence, there is a lack of vocabulary and depth, and that language will be lost."
