as played by heavy metal artists Children of Bodom. It’s amazing the amount of classical training you find in “non-classical” artists; I remember meeting A.J. Pero, drummer of Twisted Sister fame, in a clinic and realizing the incredible depth of musicianship that can get hidden behind long hair and stage makeup. Did he sell out? He made more $$ w/ Twisted Sister than any timpanist…so could anyone blame him? And maybe he’s able to have more fun now that he’s entered a new phase: Circle of Thorns.
