Biography

I'm a founding member & Drummer of Armored Saint, since 1982 till present 2020. I believe Armored Saint is a sport. We are musical athletes. I write, record, and produce music. I'm currently working on 2 projects in the writing stages BlackRaven Band 2 ( Progressive Native American Flute Music) and my Brothers first Solo Guitar Record ( Rock & Metal). I love Drums. I'm a heavy energy player, yet I embrace many styles and I incorporate all I hear & Love in my playing. A few of my favorite drummers are: Buddy Rich, Steve Smith, Simon Phillips, Tommy Aldridge, John Bonham, Dave Weckl
