Willard is a notable drummer in the punk music scene having played for bands such as Rocket from the Crypt and more recently The Offspring. Recently, he plays drums full-time for Tom Delonge's (of Blink-182 fame) Angels and Airwaves (abbreviated "AVA") project. Willard's drumming style changes significantly for the purpose of AVA's music, employing an expanded drum kit with bells and larger toms/other percussion effects.
Aside from the obvious, Willard's ties to Weezer include being Wilson's drum tech for the the Midget Tour and Enlightenment Tour. At Weezer shows in 2001, Willard played maracas on stage during "Island in the Sun".
In 2008 on the Troublemaker Tour, Angels and Airwaves toured with Weezer alongside Tokyo Police Club, and later The Relationship, to help promote Weezer's Red Album. During Weezer's set, Willard played drums on Rivers Cuomo's drum kit during "Undone" and "Automatic."
