In this podcast I talk to Jeremy Hummel, the original drummer and founding member of Breaking Benjamin. Throughout the early 2000’s Jeremy toured all over the word packing playing in stadiums and arenas to raving fans. Now, Jeremy spends most of his time focusing on his other true passion – teaching. Hummel is an active educator, Modern Drummer Magazine contributor and is part of the Sabian Education Network.
