Commented Kisser: "He came and it was so nice, so special, so awesome! He is one of the nicest guys in business and he enjoyed the idea a lot. Ross and Mike prepared two drum sets on the living room, facing each other, no cymbals, just tribal drums! When the mics were all ready and running Eloy and Dave started playing and the magic was on, so great! The part they recorded will be a special part on the middle of one of the songs, it came out crazy!"

That jam session with the two kits is inspiring... imagine jamming on a Brazilian beach with fucking huge open windows to the beach front and then after throwing down some tracks you grab your board and run past 10 bikinis before you hit some epic surf... obviously you know what I'd do if I was a rock star.
