This is my approach to Metallica's Master Of Puppets. I was keen on achieving a more 'acoustic' and dynamic drum sound.



The Latest on Aerosmith’s “Farewell”

Another week, another comment about Aerosmith maybe/maybe retiring and calling it a day.

Once again, this time next week, we’ll likely hear something new.
