Ben was originally taught by a guy who plays in a Manchester band called 'Black Lights', and taught Ben more technical aspects of playing.
Ben takes inspiration from many drummers, including Luke Holland, Joey Jordison and Travis Barker.
"I've got pretty unrealistic dreams. Although I wouldn't say I've really set myself any goals, yet... As long as I'm having fun I don't care."
