Drummer Aaron Thurston of THE FRENCH KICKS

Most of the drum parts for older Kicks songs were actually written by the lead singer, and that contributes to the floor tom-heavy sound. Aaron talks about how the bass drum and floor tom reverse roles in the French Kicks’ music. Also watch Aaron at sound check and then show a beat that uses the rim of the snare drum as a hi hat. Aaron Thurston is the drummer for tour machines The French Kicks. He’s toured the world in jazz groups but was flexible enough to switch over to the rock world.
