Johnny Mcstubbsthromjoy Von Bergersteinski-drums
I started out drumming as my main instrument when I was 15 in a band of 20 somethings who had already been together for years.They knew about 600 songs, so I was lucky enough to learn many styles and variations of rock and blues from guys that really knew their stuff. I was going to an arts high school at the time, the same school from which many Degrassi High kids went to in real life. My dad would drop me and my drums off at clubs and bars after supper, then pick me up afterwards
At 19 I went to Sheridan college for media arts, started playing drums in hardcore band Elvis Manson, WHO BY THE WAY KICK ASS.They are now known as Brass Knuckle Therapy and they rock. Toured for years,signed under producer Marc Berry.We've opened up Agent Orange, Dayglo Abortions, Forgotten Rebels, The Stranglers,Random Killing(also played bass for briefly
1994 started my own and continuing project Pizzamind, where I recorded my own material playing all the instruments
As my recordings started expanding, I began adding members to Pizzamind so that we could keep the tunes on the road
Pizzamind started with me, grew, took on various lineup changes, and continues after many years of DIY and Grimey and good 'ol Johnny Mcstubbsthromjoy Von Bergersteinski.
