Shaggi – Drums
Although experienced playing all types of music, he’s known for being a fairly powerful hitter. So whilst he can (and has!) happily played for a Blues Brothers tribute band it’s safe to say he lays down a somewhat stronger groove than Willie Hall did!
Shaggi’s previous bands include Black Sunrise, Gypsy, Arcana, Parisienne Blonde, Inside Edge, Mental Helicopters, Sketch, Elliot Lewis Band (with Jan), Jimmy The Cod (with Jan), The Houseplants (with Jan), Blues Brother’s Little brother, Jokin’ Apart.
Influences include Cozy Powell (Whitesnake etc), Daniel Adair (Nickelback), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers/Chickenfoot), Rick Allen (Def Leppard), Phil Rudd (AC/DC), Simon Phillips (Toto etc), Jeff Porcaro (Toto etc), and many more!
Shaggi joined Fox Force 5 with Jan at the end of November 2009.
