Big thanks to Promark for expediting a huge pack of my preferred drumsticks for my tour schedule! I’m loving these Rebound 5A teardrop tips. Prior to this I used their oak sticks for 20 years, but when they came out with the Rebound sticks, it made a big difference on speed sustainability and less fatigue on the hands for long hours of drumming! Highly recommended. . #promarksticks #drumsticks #rebound5a #drumlife #tourlife #yourwristswillthankyou
Ever wondered what I would sound like killing and dodging zombies? I had the pleasure of being cast as the voice of the character of Liam for “Arizona Sunshine: The Damned” DLC coming in August for PlayStation VR! Great working with audio director Jonathan vd Wijngaarden and the team last year. Hey wait, that dam looks familiar... #voiceacting #videogames #undead #zombies #ArizonaSunshine #VR #VertigoGames
Ah, had to dig out this old relic, the Panasonic SV3800 dat recorder. Been a very long time since I used this... lightpipe connection to Steinberg UR824 interface recording into Cubase, monitoring with Audio-Technica USA headphones. . #audioproduction #commandandconquer #redalert #remastered #90smusic #datrecorder #dattapes #whatdecadeisthis

Best birthday present this year. When I was a kid, when I saw the movie Woodstock for the first time, once I saw the Sly & the Family Stone segment, it blew my mind and I said that’s what I want to do someday. In the late 90s I was lucky to befriend their sax player, Jerry Martini. In the late 2000s he invited me to play drums with the band for a few years which was incredible - and now back again for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock at the original site, with the very band that inspired me on the path to begin with, is surreal and amazing. So thankful and grateful for the opportunity and quite literally, a life mission and dream accomplished! . . The Family Stone Drum Workshop Inc.

Listen up Command & Conquer community: “Are you picking this up? Good.” These are the first words you hear from GDI’s General Shepard - aka actor Eric Martin, based in my home town of Las Vegas. I got word he has been fighting for his life recently and a gofundme page was created to help. Have a look, help if you can, and share.
