I've been playing since I was 8 years old and during that time there has been and still are many great drummers that have been a source of inspiration, and continue to drive me, always reaching for that next step. This section is a way for me to say thank you to all those incredible drummers such as John Bonham, Keith Moon, Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, Mike Mangini and the incredible drummers that inspired them, like Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson and Gene Krupa.
