Gregg Bissonette

Gregg Bissonette—just a regular, down-to-earth guy who plays drums for the most celebrated musicians, directors, and producers of our time.

If you’ve ever wondered why people stand in long lines to meet Gregg, the answer is simple—it’s Gregg himself, and his love for and acceptance of everyone. His warm, easy-going manner is refreshing from a drummer that does the awesome gigs he does. More than that, it’s the way he teaches and the advice he gives. When he speaks, you can’t help but listen—it’s like he reads the questions on your mind and directs his answers right at you. You’ll always take away something that you hadn’t learned before—no matter how many other clinics by top names you’ve attended. Gregg Bissonette’s drumming expertise is legendary and he’s the professional that other professionals go to for advice.

Gregg has never forgotten the journey to where he is and how he got there. It’s for this reason that he’ll spend hours answering questions from inquisitive drummers at a clinic or a NAMM show. His appreciation for their loyalty, encouragement, and support is apparent, and his camaraderie and warm sense of humor comes across clearly whether he’s hanging with you after a performance, or recording or teaching at a drum clinic. His down-to-earth balance between professionalism, strong work ethic, and congeniality make him a wonderful teacher, colleague, session artist, and a much-respected name in the music industry.
