Episode 027 - Drumming, Daily Disciplines, and Playing Through Pain with Brian Beihl from Big Daddy Weave.

April 9, 2019

This episode has been 2 years in the making. You think I'm joking, but it's true. I messaged Brian around 2 years ago, we agreed to do this, and it's taken this long for me to get it done! My fault, not his! 😬

Brian Beihl (yes, it's a German last name) plays drums for Big Daddy Weave and in this episode we chat about drums, playing through pain, and daily disciplines that help him stay grounded even when he's out on tour.
