For once this interview was proposed to me and without having even heard one single note of „Buckcherry“ I agreed to do it because I believe that every drummer has something interesting to say. And it quickly proved that Xavier has a lot of knowledge about drumming and has contemplated a lot about it. “Simple” rock drumming does not necessarily mean that the drummer behind the kit is “simple”. This is how we came from the history of drumming and the burden of being a professional musician to discussing the philosophical beauty of drumming.
The interview was recorded at Essigfabrik in Cologne (11/08/2013)
