Hey kids! Just a quick note here to say that I’ve updated a couple links on the Podcast/Interview page, since over time, shows move their URL’s around. So, as of September 2020, everything is up to date. For now, I’m keeping busy teaching my drum students, one of them being my buddy Rob Hammersmith from Skid Row, and keeping up a big presence on the dreaded social media sites in order to stay relevant. Let’s hope we all get back to playing shows ASAP!!
Well, as most of you know, this year has been a wash for live performances. Obviously, there’s nothing we can really do about it. I’ve had recent events and gigs that look like they were going to happen during this summer, only to later be cancelled. The only thing we can do seems to be to use social media for showing clips of past live shows and other clips we do at home. So, since there’s really not much to report here this year, keep checking my social media sites, where I try to post things on a daily basis! Let’s hope we can get out and do live performances as soon as possible!
Hey kids – I’ve updated my promotional video and posted it on my YouTube channel. You can now check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcPsw2z4vfw
Just a quick note to wish everyone well during these wacky times of 2020! For obvious reasons, there hasn’t been much to update. Gigs that were supposed to happen have been cancelled. As of now, the next show for me is a big outdoor festival in Lima, NY on July 31. Hopefully that will still happen! In the meantime, stay safe!
I’m happy to say that recently I hooked up with Bill McFadden of No Nuts Cymbal Sleeves to officially come on board and also try out some new products of theirs! There are many benefits to using the cymbal sleeves, including less dampening of the cymbals as they ring, as well as much quicker and tear down time when setting up!

I’ve updated the link to my interview from February 2018 with Mick and Jeff from the great Amps & Axes Show. The guys have moved the show to a new hosting company, and so the link is now updated on my Podcast page. It was a great time and we all laughed our asses off!
Wishing you all the best this holiday season – hope to see you all on the road in 2020!
My recent interview with Shane Christopher Neal of the Canadian Broadcasting Group Industry 45 / Giant TV is now available online – click on the link below or on the podcast/interview page. We had a fun conversation about my years with Lou Gramm, my recent gig with Scrap Metal, and other drumming questions.
I had an awesome time this weekend in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin drumming in Scrap Metal! Everybody in the band, as well as those running the organization were not only awesome musicians but awesome people! Special thanks go out to Gunner Nelson, Mitch Ballard, and Howie Simon for running the show. Extra special thanks go out to Gary Corbett, Eric Martin, Ted Poley, Phil Lewis, Mark Holt, Janet Gardner, Tim Luce, and Barry Goudreau for their awesome musicianship! Let’s do it again sometime!
