Wednesday, November 23: Rock Birthdays
Happy Birthday today (Nov. 23) to drummer Chris Adler from Lamb of God. He's 44.
Chris Adler is best known as the drummer for Lamb of God and his brief stint in Megadeth. He performed live shows with Megadeth, juggling his time with Lamb of of God and appears on Megadeth's 2016 album Dystopia. Adler has cited Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin and Police drummer Stewart Copeland as influences. Other incfluences include John Bonham, Dave Lombardo, Gar Samuelson, and Lars Ulrich. Lamb of God made headlines when frontman Randy Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic back in June of 2012 and indicted on manslaughter charges related to the 2010 death of a 19 year old fan at a concert. He was eventually acquitted of the charges in the well documented case.
We spoke to bassist John Campbell from Lamb of God at Rock’n Derby earlier this year. Check out the conversation below. For more on Lamb of God, check out the band’s official website here.
