Hard Hitter for David Lee Roth, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Ozzy, and now Ministry returns to SABIANMEDUCTIC, Canada (November 5, 2007) – Jimmy DeGrasso, one of rock’s most prolific hard rock drummers, with credits including David Lee Roth, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Suicidal Tendencies and more has joined the SABIAN International Artist Program. Having heard some of the many innovations introduced by the company in recent years and noting they were extremely adventurous and daring by anyone’s standards, DeGrasso was keen to make the change, according to Christian Stankee, SABIAN artist relations manager (USA West). "I played every major brand of cymbals over the years, including SABIAN," said DeGrasso. "And now I’m back to SABIAN because the direction of the company in terms of innovative new concepts has grown so much over the years. It’s the same great cymbal maker, but its ideas and designs are a million miles ahead of where they were fifteen years ago, and way ahead of anyone else now. That innovative spirit and ability of the SABIAN Vault Team to nail exactly what drummers are looking for is what impressed me." Added Stankee: "Jimmy DeGrasso is one of rock’s most successful drummers. His global touring with the rock and metal greats means he’s recognized everywhere, from Barcelona to Beijing and all spots in-between. He’s always been a good friend of ours, and we’re very happy to welcome him back as a SABIAN player and member of our artist program."
