If you don’t know who this legend is, you don’t deserve access to the Internet. Kenny is as responsible for rock & roll MOVING YOU when you hear it as anyone on the planet. He’s played on OVER 300 MILLION ALBUMS SOLD over the course of decades of this pursuit: 1300 of which are certified gold, platinum and diamond! SO much about Kenny is inspiring (which he does as a profession as well – speaking and inspirational training). THIS WAS SO FUN! Kenny has a lifetime of stories that will blow your mind. I’m still reeling!

“El Steevo” has been a drum tech for the greatest in the rock n’ roll biz. An accomplished player himself, Steve and I first met as he teched for our pal Nate Morton on NBC’s “The Voice”. He’d already been a drum tech for Tommy Lee for some time in the past, and has now since returned to rock for TBone. The man behind DTS Percussion, Steve builds world-class snare drums, and was officially indoctrinated to the “Brollercoaster” club with me at Magic Mountain a coupla years ago with Nate Morton, Tosha Jones and myself. Only one of us “lost our lunch” that day… I’ll let you guess who that was. :) Come hang out with us as Steve shares crazy stories about being the man behind the magic with rock n’ roll’s best!

You’ve seen Chad Szeliga slay the drums with Breaking Benjamin, Black Label Society and Black Star Riders. You may even know that Chad’s formative development came from playing Jazz… The side of Chad you may not know is the sensitive, paternal drummer that is determined to balance rockstardom with family life. A decade ago, Chad provided me some kind guidance for my son Kaleb, and our conversation might just impart some guidance and light for a few of you out there, too!

Andrew Greene had a great idea to bring a collective of some drummer buds together to chat all things comical, serious and everything in-between as we wait out the COVID-19 Pandemic to get back onstage. Part of a planned series, episode 1 features Jason Fellman, Mike Collins, Kyle Baltus and Kenny Davis. Andrew will co-host this fun conversation, taking questions from the peanut gallery. Send in your favorite drummer jokes!

One of my first arch-rivals, Jim and I were 2 Montanans aiming for the stars. Before I actually knew him, I wanted to crush his spirit. Then Facebook brought us together, and he’s one of my favorite humans on the planet. Sigh… teenagers! Now Jim’s a reputed schoolteacher in the Midlands in the United Kingdom, active in his community and continues to inspire kids musically and intellectually. We’re gonna geek out about the old days, and you can come make fun of us if you’d like to.
