Aaron Gillespie
Anyone like UnderOath, or listen to The Almost (his side project band)?
He writes the songs for UnderOath and The almost and plus he sings for UnderOath while behind the kit (witch is hard). Does anyone else like Aaron Gillespie as a drummer?

Here are some awesome vids of Aaron Gillespie from Meinl..

Re: Aaron Gillespie
Underoath are an awsome band and Gillespie is the heart and soul, the man plays with such raw power and brings such intensity to every song Underoath plays, he's a good singer in his own right as well!

he admits himself that he's not a technical drummer, arms and legs flying, swinging to hard and wrecking cymbals that are'nt heavy and 20" plus - he brings heart to the drums and the music he plays - and that is more than enough for me!

Re: Aaron Gillespie
First post on the forum, and it just had to be in ode to the great Aaron!

Underoath, in my personal opinion are possibly one of the best most technical and enjoyable to listen to bands in existence today. They're Only Chasing Safety is the best album I have ever heard, and the only album on which I LOVE every song. I make people who arn't into screamo music listen past the screamo elements and just concentrate on how brilliantly put together the song is musically, how amazing the guitar riffs are, how killer the drum grooves are and how inspiring the melodies are.

Aaron, as someone has said already, is the heart and soul of the band. Not discounting the others in the band as they are all super talented, but Aaron really adds so much passion to the music. His singing leaves a little to be desired live when hes playing at the same time, but who can blame him for that?!

He's a hard hitter, and I love how he leans on his snare to get more power into the cymbal he's attacking on the more powerful songs. I love that his drumming is simple but yet hard to replicate in places. I play in a very similar style to him, but no where near as well. His mix of simple, punchy and rhythmic grooves and fast, powerful, choppy fills really makes all the songs the band create.

Aaron is a drummer who deserves a lot more recognition than he gets. He's not only an accomplished and talented drummer, but also a very talented guitarist, bassist, keyboard player, synth player and lyric/song writer with a sound grasp of music.

His side project The Almost, of which he writes almost all the parts of every song, is brilliant but really does lack his power and soul behind the drum kit.

Re: Aaron Gillespie
Love Aarron, he is a good guy, lives probably ten miles from me. I love his style so creative and unique.
But come on guys daniel williams? Seriously, he is nothing special IMO, just some kid who sounds like every other hardcore drummer, plus his band and fans went to shit.

Re: Aaron Gillespie
Love Aarons playing! he's not super technical but as someone said, he plays with heart.
