LONG STORY Started out on pots and pans. I first heard and seen the Kiss Alive record 1977 at 9 years old and that changed everything. Mom loaned me $200 and I bought a black Pearl 5 piece Fur covered drum set at 16. Got in a solid band at 17. Hand picked up by Canadian band Young Gun 1988 and started to tour at 18. We played covers and originals 6 nights a week. Played in Multiple Canadian bands touring North America. Started DDT with Brian Howes 1994. Got signed by Metallica’s Lars Ulrich in DDT1995 .Toured With Megadeth, Static X, Alice Cooper, Scorpions, Sevendust etc. Joined Noise Therapy 2000, released CD Tension 2002. Keep in mind all along Bobby had been developing his side project DRAMATIC. This consisted of custom made visuals and a hybrid kit with a Hydraulic drum riser. At 2005 Bobby had called it quits with the metal scene once introduced to the big beats of House music. He then moved deep into the club scene playing percussion and drumming withy DJ’s from all over the world. Once comfortable with the found found love bobby also started to DJ and Drum with his custom Hybrid Drum DJ rig. 2004 bobby met his Life partner and the singer for the band they now call Destineak. Destineak released first album 2010 and are working on the follow up right now! Drumndirty constantly plays and tours with the new vTD50 Vdrums kit. He is always changing his performance to keep it fresh and believes the new TD50 is the future for many drummers who who take the same creative approach.
