I started playing drums at 15, with no family musical background. I took lessons for one year using Carmine Appice's Realistic Rock book and Joe Morello's Master Studies. With my band Sexy Sadie (obviously after the Beatle's Withe Album), we achieved some great highlights, like playing on big festivals in Spain like Bennica ssim, Festimad or Doctor Music, playing at CBGB's in 1996 or supporting beloved bands like REM, Beck or Eels. These last 10 years, I have performed with Spanish pop bands like Ivan Ferreiro, Amaral o Santiago Auseron. The last project I released is Oso Leone's latest album, Gallery Love.
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceBenicàssim in 2.000. When I realized that playing in front of 25.000 people needs focus and self control if you really want to enjoy.
