Started playing @ age 10 in order to join my parents in their oldies cover band. I have been surrounded by music and musicians ever since!
What was the first concert you ever went to?
First concert that I recall was in 88 or 89 when Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jeff Beck toured together. I was quite blown away by Beck’s drummer at the time.
What gear do you use?
Proud Endorser of Spaun drums. Also use Zildjian cymbals and Vic Firth sticks. My favorite piece of gear is my kick drum. Spaun sure got that thing to pound out subsonic frequencies; it amazes me every time I hit it!
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
First influence was Ringo and the early Beatles stuff, then came Hair Metal. So I guess I like simple drum parts with quirky personality and a little flair.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Appetite for Deception (GNR Tribute), John Thayer Band, State of Balance, Harness, also I jam with everyone and anyone I can.
