Played on the one album where you can hear the bass in every song without intentionally trying to hear it, of all the bass players he's most like Johnny

The most muscular bass player, very goodlooking, left for unknown reasons, last bass player before Johnny

He is the "New guy" but he is amazing. I will always love The REV but Brooks is probably the best fit for them! Amazing drummer with great technique and groove, and such a musical and creative songwriter! The fans seems to love him as well, glad he gets the cred and attention he deserves!
