Yo, Dudes..... I started playing the drums at 17 – spent many an hour playing along to either Led Zepplin or Parliament/Funkadilec – funk won in the end :-) This will be the 4th band I’ve been in with Steve on bass – we have a great musical synergy. We’ve done loads of local and not-so-local gigs playing funky sounds at pubs/air-bases/nightclubs, and have even been on the telly! I was out of the ‘playing live’ loop for a while, when it was thought that drum machines were taking over, then Brit-pop took over, but now I’m back, having been ‘persuaded’ by Steve to get involved – he’s promised he’d get me a seat at the gig!
I’m no drum technician, but know what sounds right for catchy, groovy, funk/dance tracks, to get you moovin’, and I like what I’m playing.
Main Influences -
Of the drummers I can think of – Cozy Powell and Phil Collins – neither have influenced me!
