Lion "Dirty Noisy Fingers"
From Paris, France, Lion began music at 12 years old on piano and guitar. After many bands and collaborations, he started to play drums at a jam with friends, just to have fun. After that night, he proclaimed "OK, that's THE instrument I want to play for life".
Lion done many collaborations on YouTube since 2012, with international musicians, and his video of "Anasatasia" (Slash) with Karl Golden (U.K.) get near 500 000 views now.
In the Winter of 2013, he joined the new hard-rock called WIZZÖ, influenced by legendary bands as Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Motley Crüe, and Motörhead.
The 1st album was released on October 2014, and the band played several gigs on tour after that, and shared the stage with international bands as Phil Campbell (Motörhead), The Quireboys, Gotthard, The Angels, Crucified Barbara, and Nashville Pussy.
The band is also supported by Slash's drummer, Brent Fitz !
"Dirty Noisy Fingers" Lion is extremely thankful to currently endorse Soultone Cymbals.
We asked Lion, “Why do you play the drums/percussion?”
"Drums gave me everything. It's about pleasure, fun, and freedom ! I like to record studio sessions and to create songs, but I really love to get on tour and meet people who support us. It's always stunning to receive some love and so much attention from them.
And about my drumming, I try to play with my own feeling, and to play the right thing at the right moment for the song. I don't want to impress. For example, look at "Come Together" by Ringo Starr (The Beatles), it's simple and easy to play... But was the good pattern for the song ! When I play drums, I'm like the kid I was at 6 years old, playing with my little cars... I only changed my toys, but it's still a game for me !
My only goal when I'm drumming is to have fun, and to share something special with the audience... I only live for that now."
