    Ringo Starr's Drummer on Tour

    Gregg Bissonette is one of the most versatile drummers in the business. Since 2008, Gregg has had the “honor and thrill” of performing in the All Starr Band with his drumming hero Ringo Starr at concerts around the world.

    A first time Fest guest, Gregg will be jamming with Liverpool and doing a Drum Clinic on the main stage on Saturday.

    Bissonette has played with David Lee Roth, James Taylor, Santana (on his Grammy-winning album Supernatural), Don Henley, Joe Satriani, Andrea Bocelli, ELO, Maynard Ferguson, Spinal Tap, and countless others. Gregg has recorded for numerous films (including The Bucket List, Finding Nemo, Best in Show, The Bourne Supremacy, The Devil Wears Prada, The 40-Year-Old Virgin), TV shows (all ten seasons of the NBC series Friends), and the Buddy Rich Memorial Concert and video.

    Bissonette recently recorded video lessons for Kennan Wylie’s Drumset Method books (Hal Leonard) and has three solo albums: Gregg Bissonette, Submarine, and Warning Will Robinson. He also has an award-winning 2-disc DVD, Musical Drumming in Different Styles (Hudson Music).
