Stupid stupid concept. First of all, somebody who could do a drum cover of the song probably doesn't need a drumset and someone who would need the drumset wouldn't have one to try and perform the cover

I'll pass.

not to be a bitch, but you might want to edit so that it reads "PDP drum set". for the drummers out there haha.

The Jon Wilkes Drummer vs. DJ shit really bugs me because he's basically just ripping off the exact idea of what Travis Barker and DJ AM did.. Except both of them were talented.

That's what I fucking thought too. So dumb. Should email them and say "I'd like to enter the contest, but do not have a drum set. I'm sure you can find a winner who owns a set already"!

The real part of the contest is having to play along to an RJA song without wanting to vomit.

^^^ all these comments are pretty comedy.

I'm a drummer myself and i think this guys pretty good. atleast it's some rock and roll and not the drummer of the maine or something having a contest, I'd fall asleep playing one of their songs.

I wouldn't exactly call Red Jumpsuit rock and roll...

Actually that drummer is pretty sick. I agree though, I would love to win a drums set because I DON"T HAVE DRUMS. The rich just keep getting richer.

Chances are if you know how to play to RJA you have a pretty decent drumset to begin with. Oh, the inhumanity...
