522 – Scott Pellegrom: Overcoming adversity

Scott Pellegrom has been making waves on the scene for years because of his prowess around the kit mixed with his unique style of playing. Part of his uniqueness is the way he incorporates anything he can (including a rubber chicken squeaky toy) into his setup.

But, after a freak accident, Pellegrom was forced to use his creativity in a new way and learn how to play drums with three limbs while his broken leg healed for months. The result was Scott becoming a much different player, learning to play from both sides of the kit and renewing his appreciation for drums and life.
