At age three, Sammy could be found listening to the Beatles and banging his hands on his first drum kit, homemade from his grandmother's suitcases. When he was 14, he received his first real drum kit for Christmas.
Soon after receiving his kit, Sammy discovered Rush. He was amazed by the talent of Neil Peart and would try to emulate his sound and stylings. With headphone jam sessions, Sammy forged and honed his own talent.
In August 2012, after a few jam sessions with the band, Sammy was invited to join 5 Pound Trigger. His 10 piece Rogers drum set adds breadth to his fills and strength to the music.
