Ive been playing drums for 40yrs, touring and recording worldwide. I bought my first set of Zildjian cymbals in 1984 from Chas. E. Footes drum shop in London. The great thing then and now, I was able to swap out cracked cymbals which I did on many occasions until I became an official Zildjian endorser in around 1988/89. Ive made records with people like Chris Blackwell (Island Records, Bob Marley), Martin Hannett (Factory records, Joy Division) and Jimmy Miller (Rolling Stones). Ive toured and played with Warren Zevon,John Martyn, Eddi Reader, Glen Hansard, Shane MacGowan, and many others.
