Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott McCausey is joined by world-class drummer Gregg Bissonette.
Gregg Bissonette has become known as one of the most versatile drummers in the business. His broad experience ranges from big band, blues, and rock, to Latin, fusion, and much more. Gregg’s warm, easy-going down-to-earth manner is refreshing from one of the top drummers in the world.
Gregg’s big break came in the summer of 1985 when David Lee Roth left Van Halen and started his own band. Gregg landed the gig playing drums with Steve Vai on guitar, Billy Sheehan on bass, and Brett Tuggle on keys. The band recorded the albums Eat ‘Em & Smile and Skyscraper, both of which went multi-platinum. Gregg’s brother Matt joined the band for the Skyscraper tour and the next studio album, A Little Ain’t Enough. The videos for Yankee Rose, Goin’ Crazy, Just like Paradise, Stand Up, and That’s Life got plenty of airtime on MTV.
Gregg now plays drums with Ringo Starr for the Ringo Starr All-Star Band and tours the country. But his passion is serving our Lord Jesus in a big way. Discover more about Gregg, his family, and living a life for Christ this Tuesday on Speak UP!
