Chris has been banging on pots, pans and drums as long as anyone can remember. Raised in the mean streets of Winterville, Georgia, he is a life long Athens music fan with varied tastes and a soft spot for anything funky. As a kid he wrote to Kiss and offered to play for free when Peter Criss left the band. He still plays his first set from Atlanta Pro Percussion circa 1984 and wants to be reincarnated as Keith Richards.
