Default Michael Miley

One drummer who I have been pretty hot on in recent years, is the Rival Sons Michael Miley. Initially hearing his incredible chops as part of a commercial for the now defunct Fuel TV, I have been happily hooked ever since. As the popularity of the band has steadily increased year after year, so has Michael's presence on the music scene. Fresh off stints as the opening act for bands like the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath, fellow band mates & Michael are ready to hit the road in May 2018 with some smaller venue headlining dates. Needless to say I am pretty stoked that the band will be playing down in the State of Delaware/U.S.A. in early May, and I look forward to seeing what sort of new groovy stuff Michael & the boys come up with this year. No longer playing Mayer Bros. drums, Michael now proudly pounds and beats upon Gretsch drums & Paiste cymbals.

Oh Hell yes! A big fan.

My only bitch about Rival Sons is that in the last 3-4 years they have not done any touring to Western US cities. They're from Long Beach, CA after all. I've been (too) patiently waiting.

Initially, I experienced that too here in the local Philadelphia area. When I first learned of them years ago, I only caught them in surrounding states [NYC, NJ, MD] when they were near. They [the band] have since visited the City of Philadelphia several times now, albeit most recently at larger venues and as an opening act - hence looking forward to the headline gig in Delaware inside a smaller house.

But yeah as to your point, after all the success the band has had thus far, I still see fans from specific markets, begging & pleading for them to come and perform in their areas.

Caught a performance by the Rival Sons a couple of nights ago in Wilmington, Delaware. The band was exceptionally hot as predicted and, drummer Michael Miley was as impressive as ever. Throughout the entire show, MM attacked his drum kit ferociously, producing some BIG, bombastic sounds, then at specific segments keeping time with the most softest of touches being shown.

If you have never heard of MM before, check him, and the band Rival Sons out on YouTube.
