VIDEO: Ilan Rubin tells Rhythm about his drum inspirations

He's played with Lostprophets, Nine Inch Nails, and now fronts his own band The New Regime. We caught up with the young drum prodigy at a recent UK show to find out more about his main drum idols.

WARNING: Ilan is one of the biggest John Bonham fans we've met, so expect some serious Bonzo geekery!
