In a series of drum cover videos that focus on Jim Chaffin influences growing up. Check out his new video below.

#6 on the list is Charlie Benante! Charlie‘s use of quick quadruplets was a big influence on me. Among the Living was a pivotal album, even with the heavy metal screams haha. S.O.D. can’t be forgotten either. Pure brilliance.
