OriginEdit

Gene Krupa was drummer for Benny Goodman’s band and later moved to a prosperous solo career. He started out learning fairly simple techniques but then advanced towards his own style of playing, drawing inspiration from hundreds of sources. During performances, he would play with great energy and excitement, jumping around the seat with a smile. His drum setup was used in collaboration with percussion companies Slingerland and Zildjian, creating the standard drum kit played today. During his career, famed music reviewer Norman Granz convinced Krupa to compete with fellow drummer Buddy Rich in a televised drum-battle. Taking place at the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the session was recorded and the two later recorded two albums together.

EffectsEdit

Makes the user take their work with the utmost joy, fully indulging in every little action they can do. They will make it greatly clear by their facial expressions and gusto how much they love their work. Just by closeness, the user can transmit a weaker version of this passion to bystanders. However, the stillness of ambient silence has been known to excite restlessness and turn the user mad with activity.
