After having a few drummer friends insist that I connect with him, I finally did it. In episode 20 I chat with Paul Whittinghill (Passion) and we get into some topics that he is very passionate about.
There are some definite gold-nuggets for you to grab onto and I hope that you are encouraged and inspired by our conversation.
"I’m 21, I have no cred. I was like a name on a page, and they asked me to play. It’s the faithfulness of God, it cannot be denied" - Paul Whittinghill.
