Craig Simcox


Craig was born in the UK in ’71 and first dabbled with drums at the tender age of 8 but it wasn’t until the metal bug bit him in the 80s that he got behind a “real” kit playing his favourite nwobhm tunes.
He was brought up on the likes of Clive Burr, Nicko McBrain, Cozy Powell, John Bonham, Stewart Copeland and Steve White just to name a few
Since then he has gone on to record with some of his hero’s on an Iron Maiden tribute album including

Paul Di'Anno, Doogie White, Steve Grimmett, Steve Overland, Bernie Shaw, Bernie Tormé, Billy Liesegang, Cliff Evans, Ian Nash, Lea Hart, Phil Campbell, Todd Campbell & Jem Davis

and is currently working on several different projects including Higher-On-Maiden, and the Ian Danter band for the up and coming UK tour.

“It’s great to be a part of the Soultone family, its close knit, friendly, and they will do all they can to accommodate any needs, even recently making me a prototype ride to my own spec!”

Craig is using Natal drums (Ash & Birch) exclusively
