John Bottone / Bio

Optimistic and freedom-loving
Jovial and good-humored
Honest and straightforward
Intellectual and philosophical

Throughout the entire course of my life, I have tried to create a sound that is truly unique, yet accessible. Imagine this; Danny Carey, Stewart Copeland, Carter Beauford, Dave Lombardo, Joey Jordison, Vinnie Colaiuta, Terry Bozzio and Neil Peart all partying with John Bonham!!! Combining all of those influences under one roof, you get an explosive, full throttle, rhythmically driven rock drummer!
