Killian Young captions the inspiring short film Drummer Wanted:

Rick Abbott, bandmate of drummer Dean Zimmer, says their band has opened for Thin Lizzy, Foghat and Styx. But Zimmer is no ordinary drummer. Zimmer has arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disorder that makes it difficult to move his joints, according to the Los Angeles Times. Despite being restricted to a wheelchair, Zimmer pursued his dream to be a drummer. In fact, due to his limited range of motion, his drumming style maximizes efficiency.
