Twister Sister and Adrenaline Mob Drummer A.J. Pero Died Today on Tour

Twisted Sister/Adrenaline Mob drummer A.J. Pero passed away this morning, in his bunk on the Adrenaline Mob tour bus.

Twisted Sister has always been one of those bands that you love, but sometimes forget about. Not because they're easy to forget, but because they haven't released anything new in a while. But a great band, with amazing songs.

When I first started listening to them, A.J. Pero was the monster behind the drum kit, and was the guy everyone saw playing that memorable drum intro for 'We're Not Gonna Take It' from Stay Hungry, one of the best songs and videos from the 80s.

Funny Things Drummers Say in the Studio

If you've been in a band, you've probably heard your drummer say some of these things.  It wouldn't even have to be in the studio, it could be in rehearsal, at a show, or just when they're hanging out screwing around on the kit.

People in bands are funny.  The only thing I think he forgot for this was:

"Hold on, let me just warm up real quick."

Is Lamb of God’s Drummer Slipknot’s New Drummer?

Since "The Negative One" came out, people have been speculating on who the new drummer for Slipknot is.  Some people think it's still Joey Jordison, since the drum sound is similar.  But more and more people are commenting on the style being that of Chris Adler, the drummer for Lamb of God!
