  • I’m approaching 50 years old, love getting after it, lifting weights, playing the drums, listening to metal, smoking cigars & I’m addicted to IPA’s (after I’ve earned them) so therefore LOVE all things Pat Mac!!!
    I was interested in your thoughts regarding TOOL?
    I know they’re not traditional Metal but I’m a HUGE fan and in my opinion Danny Carey is the best drummer on the planet…!!!
    So my question is… do you like TOOL and who are your favourite Metal drummers?
    BTW – if you guys ever find yourselves in Western Australia I’d be privileged to buy you an IPA or two…!!! METAL UP🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼

  • Love what you guys do. I’m a retired Army PSYOPer & love that y’all discuss real shit that we go through, that other folks maybe don’t realize. Truly inspirational & helps to keep my chin up as I’m swimming upstream. Thank y’all.
