GODSMACK's SULLY ERNA Gets A Drum Set For Christmas

Before singing lead vocals for GODSMACK, frontman Sully Erna used to be the drummer in a band called STRIP MIND, according to Launch Radio Networks. But Erna's relationship with the drums goes all the way back to his fourth Christmas. "I wanted a drum set, and my dad had been in a band his whole life as a trumpet player, so I always used to watch their bands jam, so I knew what a real drum set was, even though I was only four," he told Launch. "So on my fourth Christmas, they bought me one of those toy paper Muppet drumsets, and I shoved my foot through the bass drum and threw it out the window (laughs). And then the next year, I got my real drum set."

GODSMACK will headline a New Year's Eve show at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, Florida. According to the group's official website, the show will be a "special three-hour performance."
