Mike Kusznir started as a hydrogen atom deep within the core of an ancient star. Long story short... Explosion, accretion, heat; and 13.8 billion years later a drummer on a pale blue dot started hitting things. The grandson of a drummer,he can count to 4, and have always enjoyed hitting things; not only drums, but rocks, walls, handrails, desktops, or anything else upon which his empty hands or sticks can make noise. Like the great Buddy Rich said, “When I play a room, I really play the room.”
