Tommy was born in Munich, Germany and started playing drums at the age of 11.
Influenced by late 70s/early 80s hard rock he studied Dante Agostini's Drumming School and
started playing with local bands.
His hard-driving style soon got him high profile gigs for international acts like
Bonfire (GER) and Glass Tiger (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 for Gary Moore, Leningrad Cowboys and others.
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), joined by rock-icon Suzi Quatro for a live recording of her London show.
Presently Tommy keeps touring and recording with LustfingeR and ETERNAL FLAME, and performs in
major theaters across Germany with TOMMY WHO! (The Who tribute show).
