Default Surprise Of A Lifetime

Here's a story that will help restore your faith in humanity. A young drummer receives a new kit weeks after a tornado destroyed his family's home. Massive shout out to Guitar Center, DW, Sabian and local musicians for making this possible.

What makes this even more awesome is I have that same "Life is Good" shirt. Those words are quite true in this case.
