Kamelot / Cyhra drummer Alex Landenburg recently sat down with A&P Reacts to discuss his career as a drummer and the five drummers that influenced him on his journey.Check out the interview below.
Landenburg: “I knew I wanted to make music so I started playing guitar when I was 8 years-old, but somehow my attention went more from the guitarists and the singers to the drummers. I caught myself always looking at the drummers. It was much cooler (to see) what the guy in the back was doing. Somehow I understood the importance of it, that this guy was holding everything together. He might not get the immediate attention but it’s super cool. I realized ‘This is what I want to do’ and switched to drums. So, I started playing drums at 10 years-old. I was playing big band jazz from very early on, and to this day I’m grateful to my music teacher because he just threw me into the water. I wasn’t ready to do it and he was like ‘You’re gong to do this now.’
