Tyler, do you always wear gloves when you play? I've never seen a drummer play with gloves on before. Is there a specific reason you wear them or is it just because you look extra awesome that way? :D

Tyler always wears gloves when he's playing - but rather than using drummer gloves, which tend to wear out quickly, he prefers batting gloves. It keeps a firm grip on the stick, reduces some of the shock (therefore reducing the amount of "tennis elbow"), and has a distinct look.
