    Bonham for sure, and also some Mitch Mitchell and Neil Peart. Dennis Wilson and Ringo when I was younger.

    I’d like to think Abe Cunningham meets Steve Jordan, with a bit of Bonham and Travis Barker...

    But really, Dan Julian, Nate Humfleet, and Tom Tracy.
    Never heard of ‘em?! They were the dudes that were already in bands when I first started to go to local shows and really pay attention to what was happening! These were the dudes in my grade or just a few years older that I saw play live that made me realize I wanted to play drums. These were the dudes that played at my school’s Battle of the Bands (the only school sponsored events I ever went to) that just rocked so hard that I decided to save up and buy my first drum kit!!!

    It's hard to say because other than a couple of bands I have found myself feeling obligated to play simple and straight ahead parts. I will say that if I am criticized it is usually that I am too rock for jazz and too jazz for rock. Who inspired that is beyond me.

    Larry Mullen Jr, Stewart Copeland, Steve Smith, Paul Cook, Manu Katche, Raheed Ali, Joe Easley, John Bonham, Bill Stevenson, Suzie Ibara, Simone Pace, Tony Thompson, and personal people I know have had the biggest effect. I would say people I know are a bigger part than I might even realize. I will say those I play with who like my playing seem to really do and those who I didn't get the gig with or we didn't work out really don't. There's not much in between when it comes to the people I play with. I have no idea what influence caused that.

    Anyone who can mention Hellhammer and Karen Carpenter in the same sentence is my kind of person.

    One guy I keep hearing in my playing is Raymond Herrera - I love syncopating bass drum hits with guitar riffs, which is something I picked up from listening to Fear Factory (specifically 'Demanufacture'). Subsequently, I learned that he learned that from Gene Hoglan (at least, that's what Gene told me anyway), so it makes me a little warm and fuzzy inside to think I've got a bit of Gene in my playing (because the dude is a godfather of metal drumming)

    If your feet can come anywhere CLOSE to Ray’s performance on Demanufacture, then my caps off to you. That’s seriously impressive.

    Not even close! I used to be able to play along to that album in my younger, much more active days, but wouldn't have a hope in hell nowadays, with so much time away from the kit. Even then I wasn't as accurate and tight as him. He's an absolute machine when it comes to that
