Kirk Arrington has died. Who’s Kirk Arrington? He was the drummer for Metal Church from the beginning (1980) until about 2006. If you’re a drummer and you like metal, listen to their first three classic albums – Metal Church, The Dark, and Blessing in Disguise. Just listen to what he’s playing. He had his own thing going on. Led with his left foot when playing double bass which always sounded odd and could never figure out why it sounded the way it did. Listen to his unique drum grooves, ride patterns, double bass patterns, fills, everything.
He was struggling with diabetes for a long time and kind of disappeared after leaving the band.
RIP Kirk Arrington
