Hey everyone! My name is Willy, and I’ve been a musician since I was 7 years old. In addition to drums, I can also play guitar, bass, and trombone. It all started in my neighbor’s basement, my dad used to go over there and jam with him, and sometimes he would take me with him. My neighbor had a son, who had a band, and because I was the youngest, I was stuck on the drums! It all spiraled out of control from there. My dad had always wanted his own recording studio, and had one built in 2006 with the intentions that he could have a place to store his rather large collection of instruments and gear. He also made it to where when I got old enough, I could turn into a business if I chose to. Fast forward to now (2017) and we have Fainting Goat Studio, a full-blown recording studio filled with tons of great toys, and a vast lineup of musicians and songwriters that work together as a team to make great recordings for people. I consider myself very fortunate to work with such amazing players on a daily basis. As for my influences, for drums, they are-

Ringo Starr

Taylor Hawkins

Dave Grohl

Roger Hawkins (The Swampers)

John Bonham 

Stuart Copeland

Buddy Rich

Chad Smith

Robert “Sput” Searight

I’m looking forward to my relationship with the Diamondback Drumsticks team! They have wonderful sticks, that strike a great tone from your drums, and are definitely easy to hold onto! In addition, the team of guys at Diamondback provide excellent customer service, and stand by their product. Diamondback Drumsticks are the way to go!
