London based drummer, Eddie Harris has made quite a name for himself in recent years, working with some of the most hyped and talked about bands in the country. In 2009 Eddie joined The Holloways for three years of relentless touring and recording. His unique style, his precise power-house technique and hard work brought him to the attention of Steve Forrest, the drummer of Placebo, one of the biggest alternative acts in the world. Steve invited Eddie to drum in his side project Planes, who he continues to tour and record with today. As if that didn’t seem impressive or exhausting enough, Eddie is also a permanent member of the much hyped “pioneers of fop-pop” Kites, currently creating big waves in the industry.
I’ve played drums for 12 years, have lived in London for 3 years & love leering at shiny drum kits that i’ll never be able to afford. Somehow these things have never culminated in me going to The London Drum Show. Finally, last weekend I went to the place that, in theory, should be utopia for me. I think that any place that hands out ear plugs as standard on arrival you can’t quite describe as utopia, but it’s definitely how I picture my afterlife.
