If you have any questions for Atom Willard, post below... ;) 

I have a ton of questions for him but none would be AvA related, they're all Against Me! and Rocket from the Crypt questions. He's probably one of, if not my favorite drummers.

I'm sure he'd be happy to answer stuff about other bands so def send in a few you're thinking of.

I'd love to, provided it doesn't distract from what you're doing. I'll pm you a few and you can make that decision when the time comes.

Im watching like an 6 hour long video tutorial of Tom Lorde Alge mixing and talking about The Adventure. Awesome stuff, but what surprised me the most is him furious about how badly the drums were recorded and how some channels were unusable. Like room mics, and he couldnt even use the hi hat mic. Maybe thats why the hi hat is room sound only?He said there was like at least 5 drum mics unusable. Hes guessing that an engineer dialed in a sound, then Atom came in and played so loud he probably ruined everything (the dialed in pre amps, and stuff). And he said he HATES how much and loud atom played the hi hat, it was hard to mix because of it, and he would have smashed his hand and told him to stop if he was there hahaha. Never knew that.

I've always thought that it would be a nightmare mixing the recordings from drummers like Atom and Travis that beat the shit out of the cymbals. Guess we got it confirmed lol

I've always had a gripe with people who say things like "X drummer is sooooo good, look how hard he hits the drums!" as if that's some measure of skill. Passion, sure, but come on haha

From a technical standpoint, travis plays terrible. He wastes way too much energy on looking cool and hitting the drums hard. No wonder his hands are a mess, but i guess it's cool having bloodstains all over your drumheads if you're gangster...

Not even close to what i was trying to say but i knew the fanboys would get triggered.

I wish ilan would need to cancel tours because of fucked up arms but the coward is just not rock'n'roll enough and discovered a thing called gravity....

Illan IS pretty far from Rock n' Roll.  More like a weird child prodigy.

Yeah, besides the hi hat thing on We Dont Need To Whisper, the recording engineer on the drums (they recorded at dave grohls studio) ruined the recordings according to Tom Lord Alge. He shows the drum channels and how it sounds, very interesting. He was like obviously mad talking about it and really shat on the one who recorded it. Kind of makes you think about the drum sound in a different way, i’ve always loved the sound. Well, guess thats the magic of TLA.

Because if there were ever a qualified judge on deciding what makes someone Rock n' Roll, it's a die hard Blink fan who thinks highly of California and Nine. You're meltin' like a popsicle.
