Brian Chippendale

I just saw a band called Lighting bolt. The drummer is Brian Chippendale. He has a very strong personality. I would even say he’s crazy. Good crazy. Great crazy.

He plays loudly on one of these garbage drums made out of some rotten material. He is fast, obnoxious, he throws his whole being into the song, any song. His hands bleed, he breaks sticks every 2 songs. He’s got no hi hat, no third cymbal, no band (almost) to rely on. It’s just him with his energy pushed to 11 and a bass player that has as much stage presence as a Rubik cube.

I love it.
