It’s two drummers today on Radio Chatter. First up it’s Troy from Tesla. We talked about all sorts of topics. His charity work, raising his drummer son, the 80’s, what he did when grunge hit, and more. He also tells me about a new Tesla album that we’ll hear next year. He talks about who produced it, and what it sounds like.

Second, it’s Jeff Plate. He’s an accomplished drummer who’s played with tons of bands, but might be known best for his work in Trans Siberian Orchestra. They’ll be back on tour again this Christmas with two shows here in Detroit on December 23rd at the new Little Caesars Arena. We talk about the upcoming tour, the death of founder Paul O’neill, his time in Metal Church and more.
