Who is This Crazy Drummer Named Wailin Smash?

“Do you know anything about Wailin Smash?” It was someone connected to the camp of a super A-list band looking for help. “Who is this guy? [Insert name of A-list band here] is looking to reach him. Can you shed any light on this dude?”

No, but this request has led me down a rabbit hole that–well, just watch this guy. He’s got a Facebook page and I found a Gmail account, but that’s about all I had time to look for. Can anyone offer any assistance in reaching this dude?
