Q: What does the Gretsch brand mean to you personally?
Personally, the Grestch brand to me means legacy. They were the sound of so many of our favorite formative drummers, from jazz to fusion to rock and beyond; musical instruments regardless of the application.
Q: Other Gretsch heroes?
Nate Wood, Zach Danziger, Art Blakey, Vinnie Colaiuta, Mark Guiliana
Q: Best memory of playing your first Gretsch kit or your favorite Gretsch kit?
A sold out LA Forum with my Broadkasters, or a sold out Red Rocks with my '88 USA Customs

Privilege and honor comes to mind! Gratitude follows. To be supported by the industry's best inspires me and the rest of us to be our best, in the practice space or the stage.
