Let’s show Mr. Chad Butler, drummer of Switchfoot, some love, as he turns 41 today!
Happy Birthday Chad! You hit things for a living. You are a drumming machine. You are an animal on those drums (sort of like Animal the muppet). You are Bad Chutler. You are the one who has the ability to fall asleep anywhere (please teach me how to do that sometime). You’re one of the most humble and kindest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Even though your drum set sits at the back of the stage, you seem to be the heartbeat of the band, working together with all the other parts (a body can’t function without a heart and you are part of the rhythm section). Thank you for everything you do, all the sacrifices, all the travel, all the tours. Thank you for making beautiful music and sharing it with all of us. We appreciate it and we appreciate you. I hope you have great day (as you celebrate in India). I wish you all the best, always.
