One Question Interviews: Rebuilder

Sal Medrano (Rebuilder – vocals/guitar)

SPB: Who is the first musician whose technique really stood out to you?

Medrano: While I play guitar and sing in Rebuilder, I grew up playing drums. I really wanted to push myself to become a better drummer when I listened to the Vandals and saw them open for No Doubt. Josh Freese is an amazing drummer. It was the first time that I saw a drummer playing punk and not struggling or playing in a janky manner. He’s very fluid in his style, everything is very smooth. I still play along with Vandals tracks when I play drums. That’s how I learned to play the punk beat.
