Gregg Gerson began studying percussion at age six. By age ten he was sitting in on local club dates. He later studied tympani and vibraphone with Rick Civnick at the Settlement School of Music in Philadelphia. Gregg quickly developed a style all his own on both drums and flute. Also a virtuoso on guitar, bass and keyboards, he soon became known as one of the most talented musicians along the Jersey shore club circuit.
Gregg arrived on the New York music scene in July of 1976. Playing jazz flute on the city streets and getting to know some of the local musicians, he soon began attracting much attention. He worked with Jack Sonni (Dire Straits) and later joined "The Doug Rock Show" with Carlos Alomar and John McCurry (Cyndi Lauper, Alice Cooper, and Billy Joel). This led to album projects with Ronnie Spector, Benny Mardones and MayDay.
Gregg's first big break came when he signed on to tour and record with Billy Idol for 'White Wedding Live' and 'Rebel Yell'. Currently, Gregg is keeping very busy with varied recordings and tours throughout the world. Most recently with the British Rock Symphony in Australia.
