He incorporates many musical styles into his interpretations of rhythm, and utilizes many unique approaches including quintlinear patterns, double-bass, intricate syncopated riding patterns, melodic tom riffs paired with the bass guitar and multi-rudiment snare and cymal patterns. He plays a one-of-a-kind custom made, fiberglass Pearl kit with a snare drum of his own design, and uses Zildjian cymbals, Tama pedals and Remo drum heads.

Clint started playing guitar at the age of 7. He was taught by his father.  He took lessons here and there but did not obtain any formal training until college. Mainly self-taught during his teens, only wanting to excel at an obscure style no one was willing to teach. After leaving a band in his local town, he auditioned for ATH and went on to record Entropy. Finally, being able to work with other professionals, he found a band he felt comfortable with.

Maurice began playing bass when he was 9. He also plays guitar and drums. He has played bass in various jazz ensembles, latin, country, and hard rock bands including playing with drum aficionado Bobby Rock (Vinnie Vincent Invasion, Nelson, Lita Ford, others, and solo). Flash and speed are not trademarks of his playing style as much as taste and color. He approaches the bass as more of a rhythmic and melodic instrument as opposed to just a backbone instrument. "I have the honor of playing with someone who I consider one of the best drummers on the planet. Fortunately, I have played with many talented drummers throughout the years. Nothing makes me play better than a good drummer."
