I'm channeling my inner drummer for next week's recording session. Due to recent lineup shifts, I am taking on the role of "SKIN SLAPPER" for the time being. I would love to be as cool as Ringo, as talented as John Bonham, as punchy as Tre Cool, as funky as Bernard Purdie, or as mean as Buddy Rich. But I'm carving my own niche somewhere in the middle of all those influences. I try to copy different drummers at different times, and all that plagiary mashed together becomes MY style. Studio countdown - 1 WEEK AWAY!
