I play a little piano, studied harmony and theory in music school, as well as mallets. I believe they all helped me become a more musical drummer. Do you double on any other instruments? Has is had any impact on your drumming?

I play the guitar, not very well, but just for fun, not to play it in a band. But i think it can really help the drummer’s understanding of a song. Also, imo, even more important; it gives the drummer, when playing your own songs, a chance to participate in the songwriting. Why just play “their” songs when you have ideas to share? Make the song a joined effort, whenever possible.
