Real name?

Jimmy

Age?

34

How long have you been playing?

18 years but with a 6 year gap.

Your top 5 drummers?

Gotta be Buddy Rich, Keith Moon, John Bonham, Nick Mason and Chad Smith.

Make of drumkit?

I have a Mapex V series but I'm looking to upgrade to a Ludwig kit soon and get a Roland Electronic kit for practicing in the house.

Make of cymbal?

Sabian Pro Sonics, a dark Stagg crash cymbal.

Where do you practice?

I practice my rudiments on a pad, the only time I get to play on a kit at the present moment is in rehearsal studios, can't play the Mapex in the house.

Are you in a band?

Not presently but I used to be in a blues covers band and a heavy rock band that did Sabbathy stuff. Love Sabbath but that's the heaviest stuff that I'm into - the band wanted to be more like Pantera so I left.

Do you play covers or originals?

I can play mainly blues covers. Really enjoy playing Floyd stuff. I like playing original stuff with bands too.

What style of music?

Heavy R&B drummer. Also like a mixture of funk.

Favourite take out food?

Like authentic indian curries with lentils and vegetables.

What country do you live in?

Scotland.

One really odd fact about yourself?

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Screenwriting.

How did you start drumming?

My dad was a huge fan of Frank Sinatra and on one of the videos Buddy Rich joined Frank Sinatra. From then on I knew I wanted to play the drums, it further developed with music lessons at school, then I discovered The Who and Keith Moon.

Pleasure to be on the forum.
