Bill Davies - Drums

I've been playing the drum kit for 35 Years , it all started when I got my first set at nine and a half.

Tama has been my choice the whole way through and has held up to every beating of every show every time. I play on a Classic Star series set 10", 12", 13" Tom Tom's,14" snare, 16" floor Tom with two 22" by 18" bass drums.

My favorite choice of cymbals is 2002 Paiste, got to say they have the best tone of any other and cut through with brilliance.

My favorite metal drummer of all time I'd say is Dave Lombardo of Slayer and favorite rock drummers Neil Peart, Tommy Aldridge, and Mike Portnoy.

The band members of Hand Of Fire are the greatest guys to work with. I see a great future with these guys!
