Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar.


I was busy as a substitute drummer in the late 70s and most of the 80s - early 90s. I played a good number of styles convincingly and I was well respected for my dependability/professionalism. Worked everywhere from the Cecil to the Jubilee. Then business and family etc. got in the way of life (drums). Now I am on the comeback trail; practicing 20 hours a week, taking lessons, updating equipment. I would like a performance goal to work towards - something to make my hard work seem more worthwhile and purposeful. I don’t have a lot of patience for bands that seem to exist more for their own weekly social / beer drinking rehearsals. Prefer to have a disk (file) of songs, learn them and then get together to fine tune performance aspects. I tend to gravitate towards the harder / more aggressive / semi-alternative forms of rock and prog. I would prefer a mix of originals and covers with our own twist on the covers.

Instrument experience:

Other Percussion:


My practIce studio takes a good portion of the basement. I have 5 acoustic kits, a dozen or so snare drums, 30 plus cymbals, loads of ethnic percussion, and extensive electronic and p.a. equipment. I bring what’s right for the situation. I favour a hybrid of acoustic drum kit and intelligent/unique electronic percussion that I trigger and loop.
