Angel Crespo was born in Madrid. One could say that he has always felt a special connection to music. The guitar was his first musical instrument, but after listening to musicians like Billy Cobham, he discovered the multiple possibilities that the drums hold. He was so inspired that he decided to become a professional drummer. He started his musical studies at the Conservatorio Superior de Música in Madrid. There he studied music theory, choir ensemble studies, and percussion. His first practice pad was a present from his bother Javier who was fed up of seeing him practicing by beating up on his school books.
