It's been a long time since I've played seriously. Here are some recent screen grabs of slightly more recent outings:





Jan Hammer eat yer heart out!

A couple of pictures of me with my new custom Trick Kit. The kit isn't fully put together in these pics, nor do I have my own cymbals or my brand new custom bass drum head on... but you get the idea.







This is a really old picture of me before I started playing for Trick. I'm playing on a Yamaha here. This is during a show in Scottsdale, Arizona with a band I used to play for called Radiofix.

What venue is that picture from? Looks like probably Martini Ranch or Marquee theater?

This was somewhere around South Dakota possibly.. our band had a show to play in Minnesota (we're from California) and as I was driving, I decided to wake up our photographer and let him see the sunrise. He decided to wake up everyone else, tell them to unload acoustic equipment, and play in this open field off the highway. It was like, 35 degrees outside but totally beautiful and awesome. There's video of this somewhere.. we did this sort of thing all along the way, there and back.

That is the greatest picture ever. Such freedom that it shows. Really makes me want to be in a band too :)

Unfortunately not, that was just by luck that someone happened to be taking photos at a concert I was playing in. That wasn't my set, that was a lovely Premier Artist Birch with an 18" bass drum that I was particularly fond of.

After that we were "rock and roll prostitutes" for 13 years playing clubs while traveling around the United States (mainly the Southeast). One of our best gigs was Club LaVela in Panama City Beach (one of the homes to spring break). Great stories and even better times.

I don't miss the road too much, but I sure do miss playing every night. I'm currently a third year medical student, so I just play drums as a hobby now. At least I actually get to practice versus trying new licks in front of a few hundred people every night. I have learned more in the last year than I would have in a few years on the road (especially with Drummerwold).

If Drummerworld was around when I was in high school, I might have never graduated.

Yeah... so at the risk of sounding stupid, I can't for the life of me figure out how to post a picture. I see the icon that says insert image, but I don't know what to do after that.
