BIGGEST INFLUENCE(S):
I love any drummer who grooves and can put me in a trance with their playing, time and feel are what do it for me. Jeff Porcaro, Carter Beauford, Nick Buda, Steve Ferrone, Joey Waronker, John Fisher and Vinnie Colaiuta for pure groove and Abe Cunningham and Nate Morton for pound and groove. Ray Garraway, you were one of my favourite drummers on the planet and I cherished our time together. You are deeply missed.
