DRUMS & GUITAR
Jim is a seasoned drummer who’s also tinkering with the Guitar!
A veteran of numerous covers and original bands, having played everything from Country to Metal, most recently providing the backbeat for The Guards and The Chuck Norris Experience.
Jim’s love of the era, like many of us, started by spinning Dad’s 60’s vinyl from The Beatles, through Cream, via Electric Ladyland, you’ll get the idea.
His first kit arrived at the age of sixteen having heard Vinnie Colaiuta’s work on Zappa’s “Joe’s Garage”. Wider influences include Mitch Mitchell, Keith Carlock, Steve Porcaro, and of course Ringo.
Jim uses Mapex drums with Sabian HHX cymbals
