Graham Hopkins is truly one of the great Irish drummers. He's played with Glen Hansard, The Frames, Delores O' Riordan, Therapy, My Little Funhouse, David Keenan, Gemma Hayes, Snow Patrol and his own band Halite to name but a few.
On this episode we talk about how we first met along with Graham's time living in L.A. as a member of My Little Funhouse. The band was signed to Geffen records and at the mere age of 16 he was mixing with the likes of Guns N' Roses and Alice in chains.
We discuss our love for drumming and many of the drummers that have inspired us over the years as the obligatory bit of messing. Typical drummers!
Both Graham and I are share duties on 4 albums together which I discovered while researching for this Podcast. The are Pugwash 'Jollity' and 'Giddy'. The 'Once' Soundtrack featuring Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova and Q's 'Root to The Fruit.
