We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"My very first drum was a Gretsch. My last drums will be Gretsch. Nothing feels and sounds like a Gretsch drum. I believe playing Gretsch is what separated me from the pack of other drummers. Of the over 200 million sold records the I've been blessed to play on, 95% were done on my Gretsch drums.


Gretsch - My Sound "


Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Never stop learning. Always believe in yourself. Be early and be prepared to stay late. And if you want to play the kit of your dreams, Play Getsch!!"
