At the age of 12 I decided to continue learning on my own. In this time I reached a level of expertise and I took the chance to start playing in the Hungarian musical elite, a tendency that is still strong in my career. Mostly Billy Cobham, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dennis Chambers and Terry Bozzio influenced my play style. Until now I have performed on over 100 albums* of various styles.
I have contributed to several albums as an arranger and music director. Since I was a performer on numerous drummer festivals and concerts, I played with Tommy Campbell, Steve Smith, Trilok Gurtu, Akira Jimbo, Hiram Bullock, Vernon Reid, L. Shankar, Bob Mintzer and Iain Ballamy. In my country I was selected drummer of the year twice, I have two lifetime achievement awards and two “golden disc awards” one for my work as an arranger and one as a performer.
In 2001 I received the Golden Drumstick Prize and in 2004 the Artisjus Lifetime Achievement Award. So far I have released two albums, the first at the age of 17, released by BMG in 1998 titled „17”. The second one – „Sausage” – was released in 2004 by Tom Tom Records. Read more on Last.fm.
