Watch: MICHAEL JACKSON's Drummer Hears LINKIN PARK Once, Writes Sick Drum Parts

"Numb" just got groovier.

Jonathan "Sugarfoot" Moffett has drummed for everyone from Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson, to Elton John and Madonna, and beyond. Though he could also drum for Linkin Park if he wanted to – it'd take the dude like, 20 minute to learn every song and write his own parts.

Watch as Moffett sits down with Drumeo to check out Linkin Park's "Numb" for the first time ever, all while writing his own grooves. It's nuts.

"You probably woke up today not knowing you'd be watching Michael Jackson's drummer play a Linkin Park song. But here we are!" wrote Drumeo. "We love asking pro drummers to try playing a song they've never heard before, and Jonathan 'Sugarfoot' Moffett was gracious enough to give it a try.

"But he did it differently. Rather than listening through the track first, he immediately jumped in and started playing along. What you're watching is a true improv jam where Sugarfoot feels the song and adjusts as the song progresses!"

Drumeo has published similar videos in the past, having drummers hear Metallica's "Lux Æterna" and Slipknot's "The Dying Song" as quick as possible.
