Craig Bacon

Band: Independent

"Aquarian drum heads are in my opinion the most consistent and durable heads out there today and their coating is second to none. Swapping between coated and clear heads gives me all the flexibility I need, live or in the studio."


Craig started playing drums at the age of 3, firstly learning by playing along to records in his parents loft and going on to do his first gig at 11 years old. From then till now he has toured all over the world, recorded and appeared on TV and Radio with many artists/bands including;
