Favourite Fishsticks: 2B ANNIHILATOR
The Annihilators are perfectly weighted to give a bit more power, durability and tone out of the drums than your regular 2B. They actually do more of the work for you, which is awesome for those 2+ hour sets.

Bands you would love to tour with or already have: Would love to tour with Nightwish. I could sit and watch them every night!! Or Bon Jovi, just for the shear size of their shows.
Most memorable moments:
- Playing in front of 20,000 people as the pre-game show for a Newcastle Jets A-League game. Seeing people singing & clapping along from the other end of the stadium was pretty unreal.
- Playing at the iconic Whiskey A GoGo on the LA sunset strip. Playing on the same stage where so many legends have played before was just amazing.
- Spending 3 days at the NAMM show in Anaheim. So big, so noisy, so much gear and so many people, its actually quite overwhelming. Met a lot of great people and some of my drum idols as well. Was hard not to run around being a fan boy.... gotta stay cool.
