On C & C:
“I was introduced to Bill Cardwell and his drums at a time when I had just about given up on dealing with people in the industry. Here was a guy who genuinely wanted to make great sounding – and good looking – drums for musicians who were passionate about playing – no bullshit! His enthusiasm, together with Jake Cardwell and the amazing family at C&C, helped to reignite my love for drumming. Thanks to our now decade-long relationship, I’ve been able to grow as a person and a player. C&C is a part of me.”
