Wilson Silva got his first set of drumsticks when he was eight years old. His passion for drumming started when his parents bought him his first toy drum kit. He was self taught; playing along with records of bands like Queen, Slipknot, and Nirvana. His broad taste in music allows him to easily switch from rock/heavy to pop, with intensity, a deep groove, and the sensibility and taste of a songwriter. His drumming style is influenced by greats such as John Otto, Roger Taylor, Joe Jordison, and Dave Grohl. "'m extremely happy and beyond satisfied with being a part of the Zildjian family."
