I thought SAL G (Staind’s drum technician of about 15 years) officially took over the role of the band drummer.

If you go on his facebook page it still looks like he is their drummer however here on the official site it doesn’t really show that. https://www.facebook.com/pages/SAL-G-of-Staind/336355753045426

 

The band even released this video back when it was announced:

Thanks Ryan for that info. I was aware of Sal being in the band. I was able to meet him at a meet and greet.

I did see his facebook page also. I guess I was having some doubts when you only see three in a poster not four.

He is a fantastic drummer and a really nice guy too. I have a couple meet and greets again this tour and look forward to seeing all of them again. Staind has been very good to me over the past 15 years since I been seeing them when they were just a cover band back in "'The Sting days" in New Britain Ct. That was so many moons ago.

Thank God there is still fans like you and I to keep supporting great rock and roll bands like Staind. Not to many left after them to keep me going to shows because rock is no doubt dead.

 Thanks Brother!!

I too have been a HUGE fan for over 15 years myself. They have been my all-time favorite band since the first time I heard them. Too this day still, I have all their albums on repeat and they never get old!

I was disappointed when Jon had left the band and to hear the troubles they were having in fear of my fav band potentially breaking up but I have to agree with you on Sal being an awesome replacement. Gave them a fresh reboot.

I unfortunately never had the opportunity to meet the band which would be a dream come true if I could one day. I live in Toronto Canada, they don't tour much here and when they do, the last 2 shows got cancelled when Aaron was sick. The last 2 times I did see them I had to make a road trip to the US (Which is ALWAYS worth it) and also did 2 other road trips to see Aarons solo shows. They are playing a show at a casino 2 hours away from Toronto in Canada on May15th, however I have no idea how to get meet and greet. I know before there was the Dysfunctional Fan Club which gave fans chances, but how do you get those opportunities nowadays? I’d do anything to get a chance to meet them!

I use to be a member also and now Ticketmaster is selling them. If you go on ticketmaster.com and look where their playing shows the site usually gives you VIP meet and greet option to buy if there still available.

We met when them several times over the years and we were even at the Mohegan Live show and got on the Blu-Ray.

Better yet Ryan go to Aaron's website and watch the "live version"  of the music video of (Endless summer). Look at the picture of me, Aaron and my girl on this site and then look at the video and get back to me.

It really is odd only seeing four of them. I got a lot of hate for liking STAIND, because people thought they weren't respecting all of the members, and leaving the drummer out. I met Sal as well at a meet and greet more than about a year and a half ago. He plays a lot like Jon, so there's little to no difference in the amazing sound they produce beautifully live in concert.
