Andy Strachan | Zildjian Drum Set Artist

Andy Strachan

The Living End

Andy Strachan fell in love with drums when he was four years old when he heard Bill Haley & the Comets' 'Rock Around the Clock' on his grandparents' old record player. He started playing on a borrowed kit in the hay shed on his farm. Soon after, Andy's Mum and Dad bought him a second hand kit and he was allowed to play in the house! He played along to records after school and joined his first band at age fourteen. The band played Creedence, Elvis and The Beatles etc. Andy started playing and writing original music at sixteen and moved interstate to follow the music dream at nineteen. He played and toured with many bands including Pollyanna and Violetine before joining The Living End in 2002. Outside of music, Andy loves surfing, food and coffee.
