Recognized around the world as the heartbeat of multi-platinum modern rock band Live, Chad Gracey has set the music world on its ear with his dynamic approach to playing drums. Modern Drummer magazine states that "Gracey's unconventional rhythms, addictive grooves, and implacable knack for emotional impact are the unsung chemicals in the band's artistic formula. Few modern rock drummers use the toms and cymbals more musically..."
Since 1991, Chad and his bandmates have gone on to sell 20 million albums, perform for over 3 million people (including Woodstock '94 & '99) and appeared on the covers of Spin and Rolling Stone, not to mention appearances on Saturday Night Live and MTV Unplugged.
Live's album The Distance To Here went platinum in just 6 weeks, and proves that all of the elements that make Live a truly great rock band are in place.
