Default Atom Willard

Anyone here a fan of Atom Willard? Previous drummer for The Offspring, currently playing with Angels and Airwaves. I like his style, and the creative beats he comes up with in the music that Angels and Airwaves plays.

Fanboy alert anyone?


I really like Angels and Airwaves. Atom comes up with some pretty creative patterns indeed, I think he's the driving force behind AvA's sound.

I heard that they will be recording the next album in january. Word is that they will be recording two albums: one punk album and one album in AvA's regular, "epic" style. I am not the slightest bit interested in the punk album but will buy the other album for sure.

Ah Atom. He's good, but there are so much more better punk rock drummers out there (including former Offspring drummer Ron Welty and the drummer after him Josh Freese). His style is good and powerful, but I really hate Angels and Airwaves. All in all, hes great.

Yeah, they will be recording a new rocord this January. I've heard about that punk album too..I think it's more of a rumor though.

I heard that a few months back. I haven't heard Tom mention it anymore though. If they do, it probably won't be for a while, considering they are making a new album starting in January, as well as another documentary coming out sometime next summer.
