Mike Reed-drummer / Bio

I am an independent, unsigned drummer, originally from Scranton, PA. I am a versatile rock drummer with backgrounds in Classic Rock, Heavy Metal, Thrash, old school Southern Rock, Alternative, Progressive and even Hardcore Punk. I play what I feel and feel what I'm playin'. I don't like to be held back or micro-managed...If I feel a song needs a tempo change or a harder or softer beat...I'm gonna make it happen. Former bands: Stormbringer(Thrash/Heavy Metal-Scranton PA) R.S.D. (RattleSnake Dick and the Hardons(Hardcore Punk-Scranton PA) Tuesday's Here (Southern Rock/Classic Rock) HAZMAT (Classic Rock-Jackson MI) and countless fill-ins and jam sessions with various other groups. Claim to fame (sorta): drummer for San Diego based original progressive metal band "Lovelace" back in 1991-1992 with Bro Lovelace(lead vocals and lead guitar), Paul Gillespie (Bass Guitar) and James Betten (rhythm guitar and keys). Shortly after leaving Lovelace, I suffered a traumatic injury to my right hand and quit drumming for 17 years. Two years ago, I traded an old motorcycle for a used Tama Rockstar DX kit and started playing again. The road has been tough and frustrating...but I love every minute of it! I have received a lot of support and inspiration from the staff of drummerconnection.com, Burnt Custom Drums, Artists like Yael and Sehb Tworowski and most of all...my wife. I play...but am not endorsed by...TAMA Superstar SK drums, Sabian cymbals, Remo heads and Vic Firth drumsticks. I am now the new drummer for Silver Maple Kill Records recording artists Fade to Black, Lansing, MI
