We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

When I sit down at a Gretsch kit, it gives me something that no other drums ever did. It gives back. You’ve heard plenty of drum science about craftsmanship and tone and quality… Just sit down and play the hell out of one!

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Find teachers, practice your butt off, put your iphone down and play like there’s no tomorrow…"
