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!
I’m honored to be playing with all of these great musicians this Saturday night in Wisconsin! It’s gonna be a blast!

I’ve just put together a new promo video, which highlights my years with Lou Gramm. Click the link here, or check it out with all of my other videos on my YouTube page. It is available for public use for anyone needing to have promo material for hiring me for a gig. I’ve also uploaded the most recent “Name That Tune” episodes that I’ve been too lazy in posting – lol!
I just recently had the pleasure of making another appearance on my buddy Mitch Lafon’s podcast, “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon”. I appear on the October (released on November 2, 2019) show which features legendary drummer Carl Palmer. Click the link below to check it out. Mitch is great and I always have fun talking to him.
It was a blast this past Friday night to be on stage with my new fun cover band, Forum! We play lots of cool tunes that you don’t hear very often – such as Toto and Rival Sons. Next gig coming up is November 15 in Rochester, NY at Pineapple Jacks.
Coming on October 25, my new fun band project, Forum, will make its debut at Ironsmoke Distillery in Fairport NY. We play lotsa cool tunes where we can stretch out and really play – such as Toto – Steve Lukather/Los Lobotomys/Rival Sons/Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and lots more great stuff! Check us out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/forumband/ and on Instagram @forum_band_rochester!
I’ve had the honor of being asked by Matt Crouse of “Working Drummer” Podcast to shoot a short instructional video, to be available exclusively to their Patreon subscribers of their show. I’m working on it as we speak and it will available on their site soon! In the meantime, check out my interview with Matt from 2018 on the Podcast page of my website -and, go check out all of the other interviews they’ve done with many great drummers on iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts!
Recently I appeared on an episode of the “Carnival of Randomness” podcast entitled “Drumming Up A Podcast, Episode 1”. I, along with drummers Dave Cohen and Greg Andrews, had a blast talking drums and music in general with hosts Rob Schwartz and Zach Opsitnick. Check it out on the Podcast page!
A fun day of intense drum rudiments (or, as much fun as one can have doing drum rudiments for an extended period of time- lol) with Johnny Misso at his Extreme Drum and Groove School! It was a fun video shoot-Johnny was a great host- I’m looking forward to checking out the final results!
It was a great time recently at Ironsmoke Distillery participating in the All-Star Jam on April 25! Lotsa great people and musicians were there. We jammed some classic Deep Purple, Joe Walsh, and Bad Company. Great venue – hope to do it again sometime.
