Atom Willard is a punk drummer king.
Beginning his music career behind the kit in garage rockers Rocket from the Crypt, Willard has toured and recorded with a wide variety of artists, from Social Distortion to the Offspring and recorded on side projects with Tom DeLonge (Angels & Airwaves) and Matt Skiba (theHELL). For the past couple of years, he has settled in as the drummer in the new lineup of Against Me! – filling the spot that has seen numerous members over the band’s lengthy career.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Willard as they tour in support of their long awaited full length with their latest lineup, Transgender Dysphoria Blues to see exactly how well he’s fitting in.
