Rock music has always been a key part of my life. Bands and artists like ACDC, Guns n Roses, Springsteen, The Cult, Def Leppard, Metallica, Blondie, Smashing Pumpkins, ZZ Top, The Who, Tom Petty, Lonely the Brave, Foo Fighters, The Stereophonics and Muse are always on my playlists.
I first started playing the drums, well a combination set of pillows, tins and boxes, in my bedroom in my early teens. I finally got to play on a real kit at college and my interest and fascination with the instrument was truly born. After a near 20 year hiatus I got back into playing in 2013 and decided to experiment with the new world of electronic drumming and triggering which had developed enormously since the days of Simmons. Modern sampling technology allows you to play studio quality sound without constant re-tuning and with the added benefit of connecting direct to front of house.
Parallel Sky is first and foremost about playing great rock 'choons' live, raw and loud. Being the drummer in the band is hugely important to me as well as
letting me play at being 'Animal' for a few hours
each week. What more could you wish for!!!! See you at a gig real soon....
.....enjoy the ride.
