Zac Brown's Drummer Won't Play Upside Down
Yes, the Zac Brown Band will be playing stadiums when they open some dates for Kenny Chesney in 2013.
But don't expect the guys to do anything too crazy during that tour, ZBB drummer Chris Fryar tells his hometown newspaper, The Birmingham [Ala.] News.
No Mötley Crüe antics for Chris or the band, and that means, most importantly, no pyro.
"It adds a whole level of responsibility," Chris said.
Also, no upside-down drumming, à la Tommy Lee.
"I think that stuff is really, really cool," he said, laughing. "But everything has to be strapped down. I'd be scared all the ChapStick and pocket change would fall out of my pockets."
