"When 311 broke no one was doing what Chad was doing. His rudimental ability and strong sense of the pocket combined with a transparent studio sound made his grace notes the envy of all. Most alternative drummers at the time weren't employing dynamics and precision the way he was. For that reason he continues to be a great influence on drummers. Chad is a guy who could march on the line for the Blue Devils or sit in for David Garibaldi with Tower of Power − a true drummer's drummer."
Chad says he's happy to be back with Sabian:
"I've been impressed with their innovation for a long time, particularly the O-Zone cymbals. I love that short dirty tone in my crashes and the Artisan models I'm using are also incredible."
Chad's band 311 has released ten studio albums, a live album, four EPs and four dvds. The band is currently finishing a new album, which is due for release on "311 Day", March 11, 2014. It wil be Chad's first using Sabian Cymbals since the early '90s.
