In Memory of Christopher Allen Hyde


This site was originally used by my close friend Chris Hyde. Over the years I paid for and maintained this website for him as a favor. He would send me some money as he could to help out with the costs. Before he passed away the site was used to promote his drum lessons and building custom sound rooms. When he passed away I pulled the material he had on the site and let the domain sit for several years.

I have been kicking around the idea of selling the domain; I decided to use it to promote his two favorite loves: Christian music and drumming. I will continue to keep the site going through affiliate advertising.


Chris Hyde in His Studio Chris Hyde was an amazing drummer and a good friend. He played with Christian metal bands like Deliverance, Vengeance Rising, and for a short time in the beginning Holy Soldier. A few years back he went on to be with the Lord after some pretty extensive personal battles. I will always remember Chris for his and his musical talents.

His passing has left a hole for so many different people. I hope that he will get the opportunity to play some pretty cool drum riffs in heaven, and eventually see him again in heaven. Chris lost his wife to cancer and, before his death, lost his second to oldest daughter. Left behind were his girlfriend, oldest daughter, brothers, father, youngest daughter, and son. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.

1 John 3:19 - 24
19 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: 20 If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22 and receive from him anything we because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24 The one who keeps God's commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
