SKID ROW Announce New Drummer
May 12, 2010, 10 years ago
In April of 2010, SKID ROW and drummer Dave Gara parted ways. "We wish Dave all the best for the future and we are very excited to begin working with Rob," said lead singer Johnny Solinger. Skid Row have recruited Atlanta native Rob Hammersmith as their new drummer. Snake Sabo added, "Let's put it this way, we gave him (Rob) a lot of songs to learn and not much time to learn them, but he came through like a champ,".
Rob spent many years touring and recording with Atlanta based rockers ROCKETS TO RUIN and toured with GUNFIRE 76 featuring Wednesday 13.
When asked about his new gig Hammersmith answered, "Having always been a fan, it is an honor to be asked to join the band. The band's music and history holds a special place in both my life, and the lives of so many loyal fans. To be a part of that history is the chance of a lifetime."
