  1. Gracias por todos estos cover's, mis felicitaciones por estos gestos de comunidad para con los bateristas del mundo completo.

    *PD: Si pudieran hacer algo respecto de algunos archivos que están como "premium" serían los mejores comunistas que he conocido hasta ahora.

  2. Really cool guy. I love it when he's playing Christian songs!
