Local amateur drummer named as new Trans-Siberian Orchestra East drummer

Rick Bowman, a self-proclaimed novice drummer, announced to local news outlets today that TSO has named a new drummer to join their East line up. The new drummer will go on tour with the famed group beginning in early November.

Mr. Bowman sounded nowhere near excited in his announcement this morning, however. “All of the years of listening to their music and butchering their songs in the basement and they chose THAT guy?!? Unbelievable!!!”

That guy is local drummer, Sock Monkey.
