This week's guest Quizmaster is Pete Robertson, drummer for the English rock group The Vaccines. The band recently announced a new full-length, English Graffiti, due out May 26. It's their first ever recorded in the U.S.

For his drum fill quiz, Pete went with a surprising mix of sounds, from avant-garde rock to jazz, with a mix of both older and more recent cuts. I particularly loved what he had to say about each of the fills he picked. If there are any you've never heard before, he does a great job of breaking down why you should check them out. Good luck, careful listeners!

As always, if you have a drummer or a fill you'd like to see featured in these weekly puzzlers, let us know in the comments section or via Twitter @allsongs, #drumfillfriday.
