We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"The sound, the look, and the History can’t be matched by any manufacturer. The Versatility of the drums allows me to create my own sonic identity. "

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Practice, study and research your instrument. Learn to play piano or guitar. Protect your hearing at all times. Take private lessons to efficiently improve your skills. Remain fearless, embrace and document your failures, only to positively transform your efforts."
