Q: Who are some of your influences in the drum world?

A: “My craving to drums gave me Joey Jordison, he was playing with Slipknot, later I was astonished when I saw Derek Roddy, who played with Hate Eternal and John Longstreth from Origin. I was always a funny boy and Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) showed me that drumming can be a funny thing.”

 

Q: What kind of kit do you play in the video? How much does it cost?

A:  “In the video I play V-Drums from Roland, model TD-11kv, which cost around $1700 USD.

 

Q: Who is your favorite Game of Thrones character?

A: “My favorite character from G.O.T. is Tyrion.”

 

Q: Are you part of a band?

A: “I Play with a couple bands: Vulvathrone, Obnounce. I also perform funny drum shows in schools, kindergartens, parties and concerts…”

Q: What made you want to record a Game of Thrones cover?

A: “I’ve decided for G.O.T. drum cover because of the good intro music and start of the new season.”

 

Q: Do you play any other instruments?

A: “I only know to play drums but I have many instruments like ocarina, djembes, flutes, didgeridoo, kalimba, guitar, which I like to jam on. One day I want to have Hang drum.”

 

Q: Which do you prefer to play on…a standard acoustic kit or electronic kit?

A: “I prefer to play an acoustic kit because you can be an animal behind them. I moved into apartment, so I need to be quieter. I also use my e-drums for my single shows because of lighter transport.”

 

Q: Do you have plans to release more theatrical, awesome videos?

A:  “I am making many funny videos and covers right now, also on movie and cartoon themes. Send me some good requests and I may just do some of them!”
