    Travis is all singles single and more singles. When all you play is singles, they get pretty fast pretty quickly.

  2. Msnarlz says:

    That was hot

  3. starschlog says:

    Rubin does not use a double kick pedal.

    3:41 O MY i am dying ! I CANT BREATH 

  5. Adyman182 says:

    Both are awesome for me anyways

  6. Mark Mirabella says:

    I don’t know, it’s pretty close, but that “speed” is mostly double bass. When it comes to playing around the kit, I think travis is faster, but it’s really not about speed.

    Ian Paice reborn!

  8. j4ddrums says:

    what kind of drum heads are those?

  9. Seth Nissen says:

    Sounds like the polyrhythm from Eulogy. Rubin is a freaking beast nonetheless.

  11. benjsteiner says:

    Native Instruments Maschine. It’s $600 brand new, and the one he’s using is the old model. It’s now white, but you can get it used for a lot less, and in black (if thats what you want.)

  12. benjsteiner says:

    He’s using 3 rides. 21″ sweet ride as crash #1, 20 k crash ride as crash #2, and 24″ k light ride as the actual ride. All Zildjian.

  13. HazingSk8rats69 says:

    Does anyone know what ride he is using?

  14. fldsryn says:

    why are people even talking about travis barker here?

  15. mtxrules says:

    why does this guy only get 100k views and travis barker gets 800k views. should be the other way arround!!

  16. Pete Privitere says:

    Jack Black too!

  17. irwin3036able says:

    Looking forward in hearing this guy on the new Paramore album 😀

  18. BennJamesK says:

    I think it’s a Roland SP-555:)

  19. WormSermonizer says:

  21. DrummerCM21 says:

    he kinda looks like jack white

  22. srgfluffypeaches69 says:

    imagine the bloopers for this: when he throws the drumstick up in the air and hits him in the eye, sitting there swearing
