Every Time I Die Fan Sneaks Into Band’s Dressing Room, Provides Helpful Critique of Drummer
Massively passionate metal fan that I am, sometimes, when I meet a musician I really admire, I fear that I’m behaving too much like giant, stalkerish punisher.
Then I hear stories like this one, from Every Time I Die guitarist Jordan Buckley, and I feel like my behavior is probably perfectly appropriate:
Shout out to the “huge fan” that snuck into our room while I was in my undies to “not tell etid what to do but our drummer should slow down”
— Jordan Buckley (@JordanETID) December 16, 2015
I asked if he was going to get in the shower with me to talk about it further, but he just reiterated “that’s not what ETID’s known for” — Jordan Buckley (@JordanETID) December 16, 2015
He did say Keith sounded great tonight though. And wanted to know what day the album we haven’t started writing is coming out — Jordan Buckley (@JordanETID) December 16, 2015
The PRP points out that “the story is made even more amusing by the fact that Keith Buckley isn’t even on tour with the band at the moment” — letlive.’s Jason Butler is subbing for Buckley for while the vocalist deals with some personal family business at home.
The drummer in question, by the way, is former Norma Jean skinsman Daniel Davison, who, I’m sure, appreciates the constructive criticism. If only some fan had snuck into Metallica’s dressing room way back when, who knows what kind of drummer Lars Ulrich would be today!
