Mike has been playing drums since the sixth grade. The day he was supposed to be at his high school graduation ceremony, he was recording “Back on the Street Again” at the old RCA/Wooden Nickel studios in Chicago with Larry Lynne. Mike is a well-traveled touring and recording musician. He was with Lukyn Skywyrd for eight years and takes Southern Rock very seriously, thanks to his association with the late, great Keith Stefanec. Mike uses DW drums exclusively and if he had to be pinned down regarding a favorite drummer, it would be John Bonham.
