THE VOLTA’S NEW DRUMMER
While there has been no official announcement, the new drummer for The Mars Volta is rumored to be drumming prodigy Thomas Pridgen. Pridgen is the youngest drummer ever to be sponsored by Zildjian Cymbals (10 years old), he’s toured with Dennis Chambers conducting drum clinics, and did we mention The Volta want him?
Confirmation from the band is expected soon. On the Volta’s MySpace page they have Pridgen listed as an official band member:
Omar A Rodriguez-Lopez
Cedric Bixler Zavala
Isaiah Ikey Owens
The following video should answer any and all questions in regards to Pridgen’s talent.
