Brain

brain.jpg


Brain started playing drums a bit later than most, at the age of 14, but he proved a quick study. He started taking lessons immediately and graduated from PIT in Los Angeles. Soon after he went on to study classical percussion with the intention to be a member of the San Francisco Symphony at San Jose State University.

During his studies at San Jose State, Brain decided to take a position in Japan playing at the world renowned Manza Beach Hotel. This proved to be a prudent decision as Brain had the chance to really hone his chops playing with a Brazilian Samba band. “Playing the batucada twice a night, seven days a week is what got me doing one handed rolls.”

After his time in Japan, Brain returned to the States and formed a band called Limbomaniacs; they were signed by Relativity Records and this was Brain’s entrance into the professional drumming world. After leaving the Limbomaniacs, Brain spent the next three years playing and touring with two bands, Praxis (Island Records) and a band called God Flesh (Capitol Records). After three years with Praxis, he left to join Primus (Interscope) and remained with the band for the next four years.

Most recently, Brain had a stint with Guns N Roses, assisting in the writing and recording of their record “Chinese Democracy”.

For the past couple of years, Brain has been an active member of Guns N Roses, where he has been writing and recording their new record entitled “Chinese Democracy”.
