Foghat / The Livesays - United States
Eddie began playing drums at age 12 while attending a seminary in Miami, Florida. He realized that he had to move to New York City to find the best gigs. Landing the drumming spot with Hall and Oates in1974 was a great start. Touring with successful songwriter Desmond Child soon followed.
He hooked up with fellow Floridian, Billy Livesay, to form their own band called Livesays. Eddie has also been available to the educational system in Miami in a number of ways. He originated and taught the MIDI classes Miami-Dade Community College. He has also been responsible for the organization of recording sessions for the same college as well as working with legendary producer, Tom Dowd, as part of his Masters of Music Super Session event hosted by NARAS.
Eddie is currently playing with rock mainstays “Lonesome” Dave's Foghat and had already been affiliated with the band. In 1990 “Lonesome” Dave Peverett called on him to join “Lonesome” Dave's Foghat along with other founding member Rod Price. After three great years he went on to form “The Livesays” with Billy Livesay. He worked closely with Billy on the “Little Bit of Hurt” CD and the synergy between the two is unmistakable.
Eddie's extensive career has included playing with Daryl Hall and John Oates, Stephen Dees, Desmond Child and Tony Carey. Eddie got to shine during The Monkees 20th Anniversary Tour where he not only got to play drums for the Monkees but also The Grass Roots and Gary Puckett. Eddie also had the pleasure to play drums for great talents like Rick Derringer and Brian Howe.
