I love all rock & roll. Slow, medium, and hard. From Paul McCartney to Ronnie James Dio and everything in between... whether it is top 40 radio pop rock or heavy metal. (I dislike speed and death metal)
My drummer influences are Sib Hashian (Boston), Nigel Olsson (Elton John), John Bonham (Led Zep) Alex Van Halen, Carter Beauford (DMB), Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden), Neil Peart (Rush)
to name a few of the better known drummers.
I also have alot of respect for and listen/follow many less known drummers who I feel are outstanding drummers who are very underrated. For example, Brian Tichy (Ozzy, Foreigner, Billy Idol, Whitesnake), Jimmy D'Anda (Bullet Boys), Tommy Craig (Pat Travers), Jimmy Chalfant (Kix) to name a few.
I use and always have used top level professional equipment. I just sold my Tama Starclassic kit which I had for quite a while. I am in the process of purchasing a new DW kit.
I use Paiste 2002 series cymbals.
I aslo recently purchased a set of electronic Roland V Drums, that I love. I use them to practice on so that I can run them through my headphones and not drive my family and neighbors crazy every day. I would be willing to play them live on occassion, if thats whats best for the gig. But my preference is the accoustic DWs.
As for microphones, I do not own any as of right now (my last band owned them). However, I am willing to make that purchase after I see what kind of situation I will be getting into.
