Thanks for the kind words, yes the “metalfy” concept I kinda came up with initially when I was at Berklee as a means to practice what was required, combined with what I was interested in at that time. (Hey I was an 18 year old preoccupied with Slayer).
Anyways, as far as the drummer “hang”, Chris and I have known each other for a long time,and we’ve toured together quite a few times over the last decade (almost) - going all the way back to 2002 when we toured together in vans as co-headliners on the White Trash Thrash Attack tour…..........ah the good old days! And come to think of it i think that may be the only time we actually “traded licks”, or maybe more so us just drinking a few beers and talking about our drums and favorite drummers. Chris and I share a very strong bond over Shannon Larkin and Wrathchild America.
As a matter of fact I still have pics of us on a very drunken night in Orlando, Florida with Richard Christy cranking Wrathchild on our bus and annoying everyone around us!
We actually did try to put something together initially for the MD fest 2005, but since we weren’t playing the same day, there wasn’t enough stage room to keep both kits set up for both days, hence no jam.
So as I said, we have spent a good amount of time together but it’s usually spent, bullshitting, having a beer, or chatting about our families.
