To my friends and followers worldwide,
In response to inquiries regarding my retiring from drumming: The foremost reason is due to physical injuries I sustained from vehicle accidents, as a teenager, not drumming injuries. While mastering technique has enabled me to pursue the technical envelope of drumming for 20+ years and push through these physical obstacles, at 37, it’s clear my focus needs to be on healing at this time.
As of now, I’m retired and my focus is on the more important things – Health, family and my son who has always been my first priority. It’s for these reasons that I’ve never agreed to extensive touring. If I heal completely, and the desire to play again is re-lit; then maybe there’s a possibility for my return.
