Great

I had no idea this podcast existed until RÜDI mentioned he was on it. I have to say, I am quite impressed and seriously enjoy this podcast! There are guys that I’ve only read small interviews with (Navene, Johnny Longstreth, Dirk) that get great interview questions. The host asks thoughtful questions and it’s obvious his passion for drumming is not phoned in. I’m looking forward to checking out more!
