Happy Birthday today (Nov. 23) to drummer Chris Adler. He's 46. The Lamb of God drummer had a brief stint with Megadeth, performing on the band's 2016 album Dystopia.
Chris Adler is best known as the drummer for Lamb of God and his brief stint in Megadeth. He performed live shows with Megadeth, juggling his time with Lamb of of God and appears on Megadeth's 2016 album Dystopia. Adler has cited Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin and Police drummer Stewart Copeland as influences. Other influences include John Bonham, Dave Lombardo, Gar Samuelson, and Lars Ulrich. Lamb of God made headlines when frontman Randy Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic back in June of 2012 and indicted on manslaughter charges related to the 2010 death of a 19 year old fan at a concert. He was eventually acquitted of the charges in the well documented case. I've caugh Lamb of God a couple of times over the years including this past summer in Albany, NY when they opened for Slayer on the band's final tour. Cheers to a rockin drummer, Chris Adler on his birthday!
