Born in Richmond, VA, Michael started playing drums at the ripe old age of 5. In 1988 he co-founded the Band FireHouse. In 1990 their debut album "FireHouse" sold over 2 million copies spawning 4 Billboard Hot 100 hits. To date they have recorded 9 albums selling over 7 million albums worldwide, 7 Hot 100 hits along with winning an American Music Award. It's truly been a dream come true and an amazing career. I'm proud and honored to say I have been a part of the Zildjian family since 1990.
