Tommy Wagner was born in Munich, Germany and started playing drums at the age of 11.
He studied Dante Agostini’s Drumming School while being influenced by late 70s/early
80s hard rock and his favourite drummers Ian Paice and Nigel Glockler.
Besides playing with local bands his hard-driving style soon got him high profile
gigs for international bands as Bonfire (GER) and Glasstiger (CAN) in the late 80s,
which set the course for Tommy’s ongoing reputation as one of the hardest hitters around.
In addition to playing drums Tommy released a couple of albums of his own music in the 90s
and 00s as a singer and songwriter, touring as support of Gary Moore, Leningrad Cowboys and others.
But the drums remain Tommy's big love. In recent years they led him across
Australia, New Zealand and England on tour with Cherie Currie (voice of The Runaways/USA),
where he also got to share the stage with rock-icon Suzi Quatro. Tommy is featured on drums and vocals on Cherie Currie’s resulting live-album “Midnight Music in London”.
Since 2016 Tommy is touring and recording member of german punkrock-legends LustfingeR
