My name is Dan Whitesides and I play drums in The Used. I've been playing the drums since I was 13 and it's pretty much all I do and have ever done. I took snare drum lessons in 7th grade, failed and that was the last time I took lessons (I'd like to take lessons now though). I've been in the band since 2006 after I replaced their original and great drummer Branden Steineckert.
I was a huge fan of the Used before I was given the opportunity to come and play with them, so it's a dream come true that I'm here. We are all great friends and have been even before I joined the band.
Our new album "ARTWORK" will be out late spring 2009.
I've always played Zildjian and I always will! They are the best by far just try them and you'll see.
