Don’t worry everyone, Gabe & Mark are back and happier than ever! Or at least than last week. Today we are talking about what gear Mark bought (literally everything that Vater makes), Gabe talks about why J.P. Bouvet is amazing, and then we take a behind the scenes look of how Gabe got his Meinl endorsement. It’s so good to be back and talk drums. So let’s FREAKING DO THIS.
