Sometimes you wake up, grab a brush, and put on a little makeup. And sometimes you wake up as Bruce Becker, pick up your drumsticks, and head to the Drumeo studio to lay down one of the best-known tracks by System Of A Down.

Today is Bruce’s 60th birthday! And, of course, whether you’re 30, 60, or 90, age doesn’t actually matter when it comes to playing drums. When your body and mind is ready to go, you can make virtually any song happen. Just don’t forget your morning routine!
