ABOUT

I'm a drummer with around 20 years of experience in many different bands. I've done everything from small pub gigs to outdoor festivals, and have done some studio recording as well. I'm mostly a rock drummer, but dabble in jazz and funk too. I've played in original and cover bands, in genres ranging from punk to alternative rock to grunge to classic rock to post-rock to instrumental.

Influences

Stylistically, in recent years I've been heavily inspired by Stewart Copeland's drumming with The Police, Bill Ward's drumming with Black Sabbath and Jimmy Chamberlin's drumming with The Smashing Pumpkins. In my early years I was very much influenced by Dave Grohl's hard hitting Nirvana drumming, and Travis Barker's speed, flair and chops with Blink 182.
