The Drum Brigade Podcast is hosted by Korey Kingston and Funky Phil Pardell. It is a weekly talk show. This show is meant to be a little different than other drum podcasts you may have listened to. The Drum Brigade Podcast is meant to be a light hearted, fun show for the drum community. This podcast is not a "how did you get your start playing drums?" life story interview, tech tip- kind of show. It is however meant to be a "drum hang" show. So the Drum Brigade Podcast is just that; real drummers hanging out, chatting, drink coffee (or beer), talk about gigs, experiences from gigs/ or life in general, play drum games, venting cracking jokes, and more.

    The Drum Brigade Podcast Episode 87- My Mommy Made Me This Way!

    We are back with episode 87 for another episode. Because of COVID 19 we are recording this remotely via ZOOM.

    This week our guest is Ricky Fitness (Falomir). Ricky Fitness is the drummer for The Aquabats, and is probably the healthiest one of them. He uses super speed and a super knowledge of fitness to fight crime and win the girl (he's won so many girls).

    Ricky is one of the shorter Aquabats, but he makes up for his size by being compact and muscle-y. He likes to stand around in a super-hero, arms-akimbo type pose, mostly because it shows off the power of his muscles.

    He has brown eyes and short brown hair that is hidden by his Anti-negativity helmet. Recently, he has been spotted with a new haircut that is buzzed short on the sides and back, but left a little longer up top.


    Ricky's most distinguishing characteristic is the fact that he wears braces. He has worn them all throughout the Super Show, and his new smile looks wonderful. It was always wonderful, but the difference of before and after pictures is noticeable.

    Ricky grew up on the mean streets of Bridgeport, CT but has put his rough past aside to help The Aquabats fight for justice. He is usually very easy going, and is always willing to help when his friends need him, always shouting his catchphrase "I'm on it!"

    But life for Ricky wasn't always big stars and juice bars. Born a homeless sheltered child in the slums of Wiggerside, Ricky had to fight his way out of the mean streets to come out on top. Once involved with crime and gangs in his early youth, Ricky has since shunned evil and started a new life through Cardio-Boxing.

    "I didn't really know what was going on when I was jumped in to Wiggerside's toughest gang. I was only four. All I knew was that someday I wanted to develop my own fitness program, and charge people a lot of money for it." Ricky says smartly.

    Ricky joined up with The Aquabats when he realized they had so many things in common. Not only were they connected in their quest to fight crime, but were also related... somehow. "I guess my mom's cousin's daughter married The Aquabats. But when they found out they were all married to the same girl, they were pretty bummed, Anyways, I don't know where she is now, but I know that I was meant to play the drums for the 'bats. Not only are we related like distant brothers, but they've all gotten really flabby, and I've got a case of RickyBars and I'm not afraid to use it."
