Craig Blundell has earned his place at the top. If you don’t know his drumming (yet) you’ll certainly know his face – Craig appeared as a cover artist on the prestigious Modern Drummer magazine in 2016. Craig’s been playing drums for over 30 years – from bedroom to stadium, he’s risen through the drumming ranks by pure hard work and dedication.

As an educator and drum clinician, Craig has toured tirelessly, inspiring legions of drummers along the way. As a writer, Craig has penned tracks for TV, radio and collaborated with many artists. Craig’s inventive and entertaining drum videos have certainly helped him on his journey to drumming super-stardom.

In 2015, Craig was asked to join Steven Wilson’s (Porcupine Tree) band as his touring and recording sticksman – a top drumming spot for one of the most dedicated and passionate drummers there is.
