Alex Rudinger: Periphery - "22 Faces"

For those who haven't heard, I did the transcribing work for Periphery's Juggernaut: Alpha - The Complete Drum Transcription by Matt Halpern. I thought some of you might like to see those transcriptions put to good use in the form of a cover!
I'm a long time fan of Periphery & all of the guys in the band. They continue to set a shining example of what you can do with dedication, honesty, & hard work. Truly an exceptional group of human being's that continue to inspire! It was a privilege transcribing Juggernaut Alpha for Matt - make sure to pick up a physical or digital copy today!

Nick Menza: dies at the Baked Potato RIP


Chris Poland: There are no words... just to describe what a great guy he was, let alone his creative ability and amazing talent. Not enough words to describe. Just devastated right now.
My wife showed me a photo he just photoshopped from when he was up north, where he looks like atlas holding up that ring. I mean, that's the kinda stuff he did just off the top of his head. I honestly think God ran out of ideas and had to have Nick, like, help him out. Because... why else?

When I was recently in the hospital he was on the phone with my wife the whole time, just begging her to make her dinner, asking, "Can I go get you guys anything? Do you want me to go shopping?" Who does that? You know, there's not enough words to describe.
Robby "Pag" Pagliari: Stunned. Just stunned. Such a kind generous human being and great dad. Probably the happiest he's been in a long time. He got a chance to see his kids for a couple weeks. In a year we've lost so many talented people - we just lost another one... Great guy, great player, most importantly great guy. We're devastated with what happened.
Poland and Pagliari: Our prayers go out to the Menza family and all his friends and fans.
R.I.P. Nick Menza - He passed away playing a gig at the Baked Potato in L.A.?

Allen E Hall he had a heart attack while playing a set with ohm at the baked potato...he died on the way to the hospital.  His mom got to the potato while he was in the ambulance and he died on the way to the hospital. She got to the hospital and got to say goodbye

Andy James DowdneyRIP Nick Menza!! Not so long ago we had exchanged a couple of emails that suggested we might work together on a new project both being mutual fans, but unfortunately due to other things happening this never came about. Most people site Countdown to Extinction or Rust in Peace as their top choices, but I always remember Youthanasia to be my introduction to Megadeth and is still one of my favourites of theirs. Nicks contribution to metal will be sadly missed, but know that he left behind a string of awesome albums we can appreciate forever.

Amanda Imamura

I am very happy to announce, now I'm officially sponsored by Tama Drums!
As some of you know, I already have contact with them here in Japan since 2013 for the work that I performed in the promotional video of the battery silverstar "Cocktail-Jam" Kit. And on Monday of last week I went to the office of them in the city of Nagoya. I couldn't be more happy and honored to be right now in tama on the side of big names of the battery!

I am very grateful to God for this achievement and my family that has supported me a lot for that to come true. I am especially grateful to mitch odanaka of tama drums Japan which has always received me very well and that you gave me that opportunity. And to my producer Robert Regonati for believing in my work and that you have given me a support without equal. Now it's a lot of work ahead of us and don't stop!
