#speazysinspirationssaturday Often imitated but absolutely never duplicated!!!! @chrisdaddydave is a MF'n genius, innovator, trend setter, rule breaker, new rule maker, habitual line crosser as well as a musical authenticity master...I remember hearing him play for the first time on this Shawn McLemore record from like 97/98...He was smashing soooooooooo bad!! Later on I started to seek out whatever records I knew he was sharing his gift on...Chris has done so much musically with such a broad spectrum of artists!! In addition to him being the leader of the his own band Drumhedz, I'm also happy to have him as Squad leader of our secret drum society that shall never be named...His drumming is only equaled by his ability to verbally roast anyone on the planet...Please do not try him...(Your feelings will be hurt...) I enjoy listening to him and my eyebrows always are raised due to some idea he is playing or a concept he has perfected...He is one of our generations finest and another one of my inspirations...Follow him if you are not already @chrisdaddydave... #poloshopisopen #toomuchhorsepower #thereisonlyoneChrisDave #somanytrythough #whatareyoudoing #speazysinspirationssaturday

#speazysinspirationssaturday We are back!! It's been a long time/shouldn't have left you/without a dope beat to step to...I know! I know! I have been missing the last couple weeks...It's been tough trying to navigate thru the craziness that is labeled timezones... This is another one to me who belongs on my Mt. Rushmore of drum heroes...You can tell by the hair exactly who this is...The incredibly amazing @officialdaveweckl!!! I remember seeing his video tape with DCI back in the day and was FLOORED!!! His playing was so musical, so clean, so freakin fresh!! His drums sounded like the stuff dreams are made of...His approach to keeping time and feeling the pulse really influenced me heavy...To this day, he is still one of the guys that so many of us are influenced by...Thanks for the inspiration!! #sunsoutgunsout #incredibletone #impecibletiming

The musical balance and authenticity you created are always mind blowing...Thank you @bstrongbrand for helping to keep me sane and also for destroying me in the gym(not sure if I really mean the gym part)...You are the dopest on the planet and every night you play something that makes me look in your direction in awe...Thank you @ezingram for being such a BEAST!! You play at such a high level that adds so much to the vibe...Not a day passes where we are not amazed with what you are playing...You blessed us every night my guy...You are the real MVP!!!
