Europe's biggest drumming festival, Drummer Live can now announce top session Drummer Mark Richardson will play the show at London ExCeL Docklands on the 14th June. Best known for his hard hitting style, Mark has forged a successful professional career with some top UK bands. He started out playing with Little Angels, who over a period of ten years toured with such acts as Guns 'n' Roses, Aerosmith, Van Halen and Bon Jovi. In 1995 Mark joined Skunk Anansie; the band became incredibly successful across the world, and in the space of 6 years their 3 albums sold over 5 million copies and in 2009 has joined the re-formed band who have already played several sold out shows this year. The organisers have moved Derrick McKenzie and Sola Akingbola (Jamiroquai) to Sunday 14th June to make this British Drummer Live day with the final weekend line-up as follows; Saturday 13th June:

They will be explaining the health, well-being and fitness benefits of drumming with guest drummer Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream/ Gary Moore) who will put himself through an incremental drumming test to exhaustion whilst wearing the latest 'state-of-the-art' sports science technology.
