If this drummer is at the "wrong" gig, then he don't wanna be right.
In a new interview in Philadelphia Weekly with the man now known as "The Viral Drummer," Moore (who started drumming at age 6 and has played with Rick K. for the past 10 years) expresses great surprise and delight over his newfound ce-Web-rity status--especially since his drumming idol, Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, actually tweeted the video. "I don't care about money and all that, but to get that sort of respect, you know what I mean, on that level? That guy doesn't look at me and go, 'Oh, that guy's a joke.' That's huge to me, man!"
"I would love to think it's gonna affect things in a good way, and I know it will for me personally as far as endorsements and things like that. That's already started--I've already gotten calls from two or three different companies as far as that kind of thing....You hope they remember your name, but whether they will or not, I honestly don't know. Time will tell."
In the meantime, we hope Steve Moore enjoys his well-deserved 15 minutes of fame. Check out his website at http://themaddrummer.com.
