Default Chuck Tilley

Chuck Tilley was on the cover of Modern Drummer some years back (mid-2000s?) and currently plays for Six Wire. He's been a professional drummer his entire life and was my first teacher when I took up the drums in junior high in Tuscaloosa Alabama. I couldn't find a page on him so would like to add one here. He has also played with Lee Greenwood, Dolly Parton, and Engelbert Humperdinck. He went to the Eastman School of Music and graduated from the Univ of Alabama with a BA in Music Administration. He also played in the 313th U.S. Army Reserve Band. He is currently a Pearl endorser.

Let's hear it for Chuck Tilley!!!

And the May 2007 Modern Drummer magazine:

Chuck would play the tenor triples with fire lit mallets at the weekly pep rallies at our high school. He would also put together a Kiss tribute act in the gymnasium one year, complete with flame throws and light show. We all knew what he wanted to do when he grew up, and so far, he's done it and done it well!
