Audie Desbrow of the platinum selling rock and roll band Great White, is one of rock's most energetic and gifted drummers. Desbrow, a native of Southern California, began playing drums at the age of 9. Going strong for over four decades, Desbrow began with Great White 25 years ago during which time the group hit the top of their commercial success, selling 6 million copies worldwide with hits such as "Rock Me", "Once Bitten, Twice Shy," and "Face the Day." 1989 saw the band receive a Grammy nomination for Hard Rock Performance Category.1990 was another year of milestones. Performances included the American Music Awards as well as being the 9th band ever to do MTV's Unplugged. Desbrow, who is mentioned in several publications, such as Rock n Roll Rush by Lawrence Hull (2007) is admired by up and coming drummers. He credits his mother for "her profound influence on me to stick with drumming". Desbrow also claims Ringo Starr and John Bohnam as major musical influences.
After coming back from a European Tour in March 2008, Desbrow is still traveling with Great White, on the group's 25th Year Reunion Tour, in support of their new album, Back To The Rhythm, playing in sold-out venues all over the nation. "Drumming is what gives me my salvation and my reason to express myself through the power of music. I'm grateful for the gift God has given me."
