ABOUT

I have been discribed as a jam band drummer. I like to play in the pocket." Hopfully you know what I mean". I live in the grove. I have played in all kinds of bands since high school all over the place. I've recorded, been on the radio, on tour, played a ton of great gigs with a few good bands and have a lot of great memories. I even had Littlefeat ask me for a demo tape once. My drum shop guy has known me since I was 12 and watch me and Dennis Chambers grow up. He has told me on several occaions the we are so much a like I could be his white brother...I don't know about that but it has been a nice thing to hear over the years. I love music it flows through me.
