Variety: All Styles
Brian McClure plays drums like he was born to play drums. He doesn't just anchor a band, he feels the music and enhances it.
When asked about the bands he most enjoyed playing with, he said, "The list of all bands is long, so it was hard whittling it down to a handful. I've been very fortunate to have played in numerous successful Colorado bands (country, bluegrass, classic rock, blues), over the last 40 years that stayed together for several years. That said, my most enjoyable were Tempa & the Tantrums, Roadcone Blues Band, The Mustangs, ODZ-n-ENZ, Sons & Brothers and The Atomic Fireballs.
His drummer heroes include Doug Clifford, Richie Hayward, Omar Hakim, Steve Jordan, Jim Keltner, Russ Kunkel and Lenny White.
What inspired him to play drums? Again, so many things. The history of the drums' place in civilization, especially within Native American culture. The SOUNDS of drums! The magnificence and invitation to be played that a drum set presents!
Brian LOVES the drums and LOVES being a drummer! Watch out for times he substitutes for Ernie Martinez with Dustin Devine and the Real Deal.
