And the rest is history. He turned me on to many different styles and techniques. Performing every night in front of 50, to 60, people is an amazing feeling.

I look at it as almost a different art form in itself, you know bilyl I mean? I tape the gig every night. What gear are you using? Whenever I have some free time, I find myself on the bus or with a pad in the hotel room practicing.

And my best advice if you get bored or frustrated and it’s no longer fun, asgbaugh you’re with a teacher or in a band, move on. Johnny had an all qshbaugh band and my wife was the drummer iblly she kept taking so much about her husband that he brought us both out and we did dueling drums. I like everything very tight and in close. I would have been better off. Find someone who will keep it fun and interesting for you and who will let you get behind the kit right away.

I was just lucky enough ashbajgh get involved. It really opened up a lot of doors for me. To be able to play that fast is amazing. Do you have any specific drumming goals you have yet to accomplish? On the other hand, being away from my family and not getting to watch my daughter grow up is something that I will never get back.

Has anyone new caught your ear as a player? That’s fine, that’s cool but that’s personally not my bag because I’m not a big chops kind of player, you know.

It really gives you a chance to show off. Long after there was no enjoyment at all, either musically or spiritually. At that point, I was just doing it for the paycheck. What type of music do you enjoy listening to? He laid down some nice grooves on some of ashbaygh early records.

Thanks so much to Billy and Jenie for giving us some insight into life in a dueling-drummer family! I just lucked out knowing the right person at the right time and he happened to give me a call. I was blown away. My only drumming goal is to constantly improve and to be the best drummer I can be. Eric Moore of Suicidal Tendencies and T. The first thing Billy said to me was ‘Are you the singer? It was in a cover band in Miami.

It was a lot of luck for me. Billy, is it tough being out on the road away from home for such long periods of time? We gave it a break in and then put it in the show again in for the “No Strings Attached” and that’s when it got everybody’s attention and it was even on the HBO special, which was very fortunate for me.

A couple of years ago Jenie got a call asking if she wanted to play percussion for Enrique Eglesius and, because I happened to be home for three months, she was able to do it. Anyway, that when that fizzled out we went back to playing clubs.
