DANNY ANDERSON - DRUMS: 

 

 I have been a drummer for over 40 years.  I go my first drum set at 13 and by Junior High I 

was in my first band.  I played in various bands through high school and helped pay for college

 with a popular local group in Colorado.  I have been in one band or another since coming to

 Phoenix.  Most recently with Smith and Session and Ash Black.  My main influence was Ian

 Paice of Deep Purple.  Even today I use some of his style when it fits.  When I am on stage 

you will usually see me with a smile on my face.  There is nothing more fun to me than playing

 drums.
