Francesco Daniele - Signature Artist
"This stick suits perfectly my needs as drummer- and they are the most durable, considering that I play rimshot 90% of the time."
I was fascinated by the drums when I was 10, watching my uncle playing in a band. When I was 12 watching David Grohl, I decided that I should start playing- even today he remains my greatest influence; my mentor, even though he doesn't know he is:) I grew up listening to Metal, Rock, Punk and HardCore. My influences can be categorized between past and modern. In the past there are: John Bonaham, Lars Ulrich, Mike Portnoy, Igor Cavalera, Neil Peart, Vinnie Paul. The modern ones: Ray Luzier, Roy Majorga, Chris Adler, Chad Dzeliga, Dave McClein, Mario Duplentier. I play in a lot different bands of all styles. I’m currently playing with Soldiers of Solace.
