Hello dear Friends!
I started playing drums at the age of 6, because my uncle was a drummer.
I was, and still am a big fan of Keith Moon (The Who), who was a big influence for me. I kept asking my father to have a drum set like my uncle, and one day I got home, and there it was! My very first drum set!!!
Soon after getting my first kit, I started to learn songs by myself. My first one was “ Smoke on the Water” from Deep Purple. And then Kiss, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Ozzy Osbourne, and of course Black Sabbath!
I joined my first band when I was 11. It was a Speed Metal band. Good way to learn to play the drums FASTER! The band consisted of my brother on guitar, and one of his friend on bass /vocals. We played songs from Slayer, Celtic Frost, Venom, Kreator, and Many others. We also had our own originals, that came out on a demo in 1987 called “Trash Till Death”. That band was called Vensor. We played from 1985 till 1989, then I change my style. I played in a hair band for a few years, and many other bands with different music styles in the following years.
From 2001 to 2016, I was in a band called Garage Électrique, with whom I have done 3 cd’s.
From 2013 till 2017, I joined a Kiss tribute band as the “Catman”. The band is called KISSed.
Curently I am playing with a famous Québec composer… J-F Dubé from the band Noir Silence. We just lunch his new solo album in October 2017. The album is doing very well on the radio all across Québec. My first album distributed and sold in music stores… yay!!! I’m very proud of it!
I’m also drumming sometimes with Rudy Caya from Villain Pingouin, and lately with Breen Leboeuf, from Offenbach and April Wine.
To conclude, since March of 2018, I’ve had the great opportunity to celebrate the music of Black Sabbath, and the music of the one and only Ozzy Osbourne, with the tribute band… Holy Sabbath.
The guys in the band are amongst the nicest that you can meet, and have the sound, and talent to back it up. This is the NEW - HOLY SABBATH!
Rock you soon my friends!
