One of the largest drumming publications in Central and Eastern Europe, Perkusista Magazine, conducted a poll among its readers to find out who Poland's most inspiring drummer is.
After counting several thousand replies, the top spot went to Zildjian artist Maciej Starosta. Maciej, better known as Ślimak (the Snail), is the drummer for Poland's popular heavy metal and hard rock bands, Acid Drinkers and Flapjack.
The top ten most inspiring Polish drummers also included Zildjian artist: Tomasz Losowski (4th) - a very popular Polish percussion teacher and Tomasz Goehs (8th) – “godfather” of Polish heavy metal drumming, currently in the rock band Kult.
Polish fans also picked out their fellow countryman, Gene Krupa!
