In between recording new covers (YESSSSSS!!) I've also been recording some remote session drums for people all over the world, right here from my studio in Los Angeles! Gotta love the 21st century.

Another throwback! Almost exactly a year ago the Pigs Can Fly tour with Busted started at Wembley Arena, but I'm posting this even though it's from one of O2 Arena shows we played.
