Steve Gibson

Steve is a highly skilled and experienced Sakae endorsed drummer working with Supertone, having played with Maggie Bell, Larry Garner, Madeleine Bell, Buzzcocks, Van Morrison, Larry Garner, The Starlite Campbell Band, Chris Farlowe and Jack Bruce. He plays a mean shuffle.

Having been signed to both Polydor and A&M Records, Steve is a fantastic musician who has worked with many great artists and has literally toured the world with the likes of Ian McNabb (Icicle Works), The Buzzcocks (Singapore, New Zealand and Australia) and more recently with The Norman Beaker Band and Chris Farlowe, where you will find him grooving away in Russia, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, Croatia and Serbia.

He is both a Paiste and Sakae drums endorsee and plays drums on 'Blueberry Pie' by the Starlite Campbell Band.

He said about the session: "I've just returned from Supertone records having recorded some of the best drum tracks i have ever put down, the reasons for this were many.

First for me was the incredibly relaxed atmosphere created by Simon and Suzy the owners of Supertone, it makes the process of recording effortless, nothing was too much trouble, anything you need you only have to ask, and you only have to ask once.

The location is beautiful and the local people are so friendly, blue skies, a pool, great food and drink, I'm surprised I got any work done! I can't recommend Supertone enough.

On a personal note for drummers it's amazing, a great live room, a fantastic choice of vintage mics, a well tuned and looked after Sakae drum kit, plus vintage amps, a Hammond and a totally gifted engineer/producer to record it all.

Thanks to both Simon and Suzy I've had an experience that I'll never forget."
