No, but I always like to have my drum seats at the right place.


DO YOU PREFER TOURING OR RECORDING AND WHY:

Both, I am currently on tour with many artists since 2002, never stop, love it. I also do recording sessions and this is a great challenge everytime I am getting a call.


RECOMMENDATION FOR A BEGINNER:

Working hard, stay grounded and humble, focus on the right things, have a life outside of playing drums and a lot of good drumming practices. If you are serious invest in your career: lessons, good gear, practicing, etc... try to be versatile the most as you can.
