ABOUT

Been playing drums for more than 20yrs. Mainly even time rock, blues and heavy metal with a bit of alternative rock thrown in there. Mainly self taught and can read some tab. I'm not well versed in different time sigs but can groove to some 5 & 7.

Influences

I have many influences as far as drums go. Bill Ward, Dave Lombardo, Igor Calavera, Lars Ulrich, and Mikkey Dee would be my top 5. Music influences range from classic rock and metal like Alice Cooper, Sabbath, Rainbow, Judas Priest, Santana, Rush, The Who, CCR to metal and death metal bands like Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, King Diamond, Obituary, Cannibal Corpse, Iron Maiden and pretty much everything in between. Not into rap, glam, country or folk music. Would love to play jazz and funk and play around with a bunch of different time signatures but I have a little bit more developing to do in those areas.
