    Question Godsmack's new drummer

    Hey guys-
    I just saw Godsmack's new video on MTV2 and I was pretty impressed. He seems to drum similarly to Tommy Stewart, have roughly the same setup, and same cymbal sounds, although I caught that he uses Sabian and not Zildjian. Does anyone know anything about him? How long he's been a member? Name? Any information would be helpful. Thanks

    Shannon Larkin. He's featured in Modern Drummer this month (ok, actually it's the June issue, I think). He's been in several bands including Wrathchild America, Ugly Kid Joe, and Amen.

    I remeber readingsomething about him in MD. I don't remember much about it, but I think he has a girl's name. Maybe I'm wrong and they just switched again. Someone else probably knows more about than me.

    i listened to a radio interview with godsmack a couple of days ago. apparently he quit he his band amen and then 2 weeks later he got a call from sully (lead vocals, and old time bud) to fly out to l.a. and do the new faceless cd. "straight out of line" was the first song recorded.

    i just got the cd the day it came out (tuesday) and its pretty good. im also seeing them live in a month.

    so yeah, i like godsmack .

    Cool!!! I thought everyone had forgotten about Wrathchild America. I got to see him play years ago with them and he went for hours at light speed without even breaking a sweat!

    He's a good guy too.

    Do you remember their song "I'm not drunk... I'm just drinking"...?

    too funny.

    man, i don't know why, but i just get a negitive vibe from him, don't know why, just don't like him


    he plays fine, but its just, i don't know, didn't think he was putting any emotion into his playing
