My guest this week is Eddy Thrower, a session drummer from the UK who currently plays with Busted, and was formerly a member of Lower Than Atlantis. Eddy has had his fair share of session work as well but has now found himself a home in the online education world with his website and hugely popular instagram account. One of the 'real' ones, he's a great sport and we share a lot of the same views on social media and 'performance' in general. We talk about finding your space in the online drumming world, the good old days of touring in vans and plenty more...
Eddy Thrower is the drummer for popular UK rock group Lower Than Atlantis. In this chat we discuss band morale, touring situations, Eddy's clinic experiences, aliens, conspiracies, ghosts, and Travis Barker. Eddy is an incredible player, whos singles alone are worthy of mention. He cannot read, or write music, and barely understands theoretically what it is he plays, but it goes to show that with a lot of heart and dedication to the instrument anything is possible. When Tama approached him about doing a masterclass, he was a bit fearful of that because it is so far outside of his comfort zone. Once it was revealed that he didn't really understand theory, it all kinda makes sense why he was fearful. We go into this subject matter in quite a lot of depth. He then shares an epic story of when LTA was touring North America and how they were robbed after a gig in a shady part of Montreal, Canada. Damn, even I thought Canada was better than this, but the story is one of tragic misfortune and an outcome that was better than what it could have been I suppose. I learned that Eddy was fascinated with ancient history, aliens, and the unknown at large. We ended up swapping conspiracy, ghost, and other stories about the unknown and had a blast doing so. Never before has a guest got so excited about a subject on the show. Then lastly we talk about a few run-ins Eddy has had with Travis Barker. This stuff is just legendary and a great way to conclude the episode. Eddy's Socials Instagram | Facebook | YouTube DrumGAB's Socials Instagram | Facebook | Website
