ABOUT

I suppose my style is pretty rooted in the 70s as my favourite drummers have always been Ian Paice, Brian Downey and Frank Beard, though I have brought more double bass into my playing in the last 10 years. I'm more comfortable with a large kit as I find it more exciting and varied and can't understand the current obsession with small set ups, though I do strip it down to basics when appropriate (under protest, naturally).
