We rehearsed for about 3 1/2 weeks or so and began the tour. I knew all the songs and it was very natural feeling. As I've said before, it was a balance of honoring what came before (insofar as the parts) and then adding my spices without changing the flavor of the material. I did my best to update a lot of the parts and that's really it. Glad to hear the trad grip thing is working itself out.

OK! There you go-


Sorry you missed the gig. I also did a clinic that same day at the university for Craig Allen's drum shop. As far as the new kit (that's actually 2 years old now) goes, I really adore it. Fat sounding with a strong fundamental tone. Inspiring every night. (pic below)


WOW, Todd, what ride cymbal is THAT on your new kit?? That doesn't look like a Precision Ride! lol

Are you mainly using Vault V crashes on stage or do you occassionally have the AAX Xplosion Fast Crashes now? I see them on your setup on

Speaking of gear stuff, I gotta kick my local Guitar Centers and other retailers in the butt and get your ProMark sticks in stock. I can't find them ANYWHERE in-store.. I might have to order online.. Although my local "mom and pop" store said they can order me some. Would love to try them out!


I've been drumming for 35 years. I'm 34 years old.
