Drum roll, please… Vince is our guy. He is even more so our guy when he is killing it on the drums wearing Harrolds’ best in a Saint Laurent suit and Nike x Comme des Garçons sneakers. This is what fashion dreams are made of. Let’s do it.
10: How long have you been drumming?
Vince: “Pretty much entire life. Was wacking pots and pans as a baby before I ever had a drum kit.”
Vince: “Gretch Catalina club. Small Jazz kits. Always.”
10: Why did you start? Who? What? Where?
Vince: “My dad has played blues guitar as long as I’ve been alive. Which I suppose inspired me to get into music. I dont remember the first time I ever played drums but i’m sure dad could tell I enjoyed and made sure that’s what I did for the rest of my life.”
10: Drum heroes?
Vince: “My first teacher Jack Savage. Who died when I was about 14. He was an Old new-Yorker who had been playing in Jazz bars and night clubs in the 30s – 40s jazz scene. He gave me a ridiculous amount of knowledge for how old I was.”
10: Best drum fill that inspires you?
Vince: “Yussef Dayes. Nathan Camerena (CHON) And Animal from the muppets.”
10: Who are you listening too now?
Vince: “My favorite drum fill ever is about 5 minutes into a live version of Steely Dan’s Bodhisattva. Its very quick and short and is not even supposed to be there in the recorded version of the song. It’s great.”
10: Current band? Or are you scoping out new one?
Vince: “I’m not working with anyone at the moment. Music is my biggest passion so it is kind of a shame. Since I’m traveling a lot for work it makes it hard. But my goal at the moment is to start a band in London since the music scene is miles better than it is here in Sydney.”
10: What are you working on musically?
Vince: “Try to find people who are into the same kind of music to me. Which is proving difficult due to my taste being obnoxiously obscure.”
10: We filmed you in your garage, does the best music happen here?
Vince: “The garage is the jam spot that is for sure. I worry about my neighbors sometimes but nobody has ever complained. Even when I had my old progressive death metal band playing in there.”
10: Where to next?
Vince: “Like I mentioned before. Start a band/bands in the London. Maybe do some busking. Get into the UK rock scene and hopefully make something out of it (get super rich and famous).”
