    My drummer buddy told me that Chris Adler the powerhouse drummer from Lamb of God, was originally a bass player. I thought that was very cool. So, I found this article and thought it was interesting. Figured my fellow bass players would appreciate it too. I thought it was pretty cool how he takes a bass player's approach to his drum parts.

    Any Bass players out there play drums too? Or other instruments? If so do you apply what you've learned about bass to the drums (or other instruments)...or vice versa?

    I don't play drums, but it's funny you posted this, because one of my good friends who is a huge Lamb of God head and plays bass just told me about Chris' old bass-dom, which I had never known before. Gnarly.

    I sort of play drums, congas/bongos actually. It does give me a different perspective. Most bassists should think about and connect with the drummer anyway, but since I actually play, I think I do so even more.
