Favorite Album: Drums of India volume 1, Juan Prakash Ghosh.

Favorite Band:  I am enjoying Animals as leaders a lot right now.

Favorite Venue: Jodhpur fort, India. Had an amazing midnight – full moon gig there with thirty Rajasthani folk artists a few years back. Either that or the venue carved deep in a volcanic tube in Lanzarote.

Current live/ studio studio set up: I am using the Saturn drums, Ash burl finish with 13” cherry bomb snare and my 12 x 2 Mapex thunderkick.

What are you listening to right now: Palghat Mani Iyer Mridangam solo in Khanda Jhapu!!

Favorite Piece of gear in your set up: My thunderkick.  A bespoke product from Mapex which hopefuly will oneday see production.  12” x 2” it has the kick of a mule! MASSIVE!

Favorite Food: Fillet steak.

Favorite Drink: Australian red wine, CHILLED!

Favorite Film: Great dictator, Charlie Chaplin. What a statement!

Favorite Book: ‘A survivor’s guide to Eternity’ by Pete Lockett… errr, no That’s my own Novel… Indian rhythms for the drum set by Pete Lockett, no no… that’s far to egotistical. I will plump for Immanuel Kant’s Critique of pure reason!

Favorite TV Show: Has to be Breaking Bad!!
