Gil Sharone
Los Angeles native Gil Sharone is highly regarded as one of the most versatile session and touring drummers in the world, who is known for his creativity, authenticity & strong pocket.

Gil is a multiple-time industry award winner, an educator/clinician, and an active member of the bands, Marilyn Manson, Stolen Babies and Team Sleep. His work further extends into film and television scores including Deadpool 2, Guardians of The Galaxy 2, John Wick 1 and 2, The Punisher and Kingdom.

He has recently co-written & performed on songs for DC Comics' Dark Nights: Metal soundtrack with Tyler Bates and Mike Elizondo.

Possessing a unique skill set, Gil Sharone came to notoriety in the rock world as a member of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Puscifer and Marilyn Manson. However, he is widely known as an expert in several other genres. Reggae, ska & rocksteady were part of his earliest influences along with jazz, funk, hip hop and fusion.

Gil established himself in the Jamaican styles playing with legends like Eek-A-Mouse, HR of Bad Brains, and Dave Wakeling, which inspired him to author an award-winning DVD and book, Wicked Beats.

You can also hear him on performances with Slightly Stoopid and the Grammy Award winning Morgan Heritage.
