Mike Dupke is the currently drummer for the band WASP (founded by Blackie Lawless). He played sessions for John Cougar Mellencamp, in the past as well. Mike throws in good fills, triplets, stays focus on the job - plays for the song - with an outstanding open/close hi-hat.
He studied, took classes with Kenny Aronoff.
Any review on his playing style?
