The Drum Tamer - Purveyor of beats

Hello!  I'm John.  I'm a drummer & musician from Manchester (UK) and I love to get involved in all sorts of projects.  

I've played with prog, folk, funk, pop, rock, blues, electronica, math-rock, country and disco bands over the years so I'm always looking for a new challenge. 

Get in touch if you'd like to talk to me about playing on a record or coming to jam with you live.  I also do drum teching and recording/mixing/mastering.

@TheDrumTamer: "@Dan_Zambas Hah, they are fiddly little bastards. Some of my switches started working again after some switch cleaner and a good pummelling."

TOOL! Finally managed to be in the right country at the right time to see this band after years of hoping they would tour again. What a privilege. 
I had to hire a car and drive for 4 hours from Philadelphia to get here, on a day off during our own tour, because I figured if I didn't see them now I might have never got the chance!

Maynard was wearing some kind of riot police/dark storm trooper outfit, and doled out his unique brand of social commentary.  Hooray for music and those willing to go against the flow.
