"The main things that inspire my playing are hearing really good drummers playing things I can’t and wanting to improve; hearing a good riff that someone in my band wrote and getting the chance to play whatever I want to it; writing beats/fills that I’ve never heard before and thinking that there’s a chance I’m the first person ever to play that particular beat/fill even though there are millions of drummers out there; and watching kids on YouTube cover our songs on drums and knowing that the new stuff I write will most likely be learned and played by a bunch of different people. But the number 1 thing that inspires my playing is people telling me that my playing inspires them to play. That’s a great feeling."
-Ben Gordon, Parkway Drive

"Today’s youth are without a shadow of a doubt the entitled generation. They think they are entitled to whatever they want with no repercussions. Because of social media, they think they can say whatever they want to whomever they want because they’re not face-to-face with the person. They have no problem spewing whatever they want from their mouth and fingers because they feel entitled to do so."
-Alex Wade, Whitechapel

Do you think the world will end by Christmas?
"It’s important just to live your life to the fullest. Do all the things you need to do when you have the time to do it and don’t worry about that kind of stuff. Especially in this generation, everybody’s worrying about everything. Sometimes there are things you can’t control. There’s no point in worrying about it."
