Jimmy DeGrasso is Back With Alice Cooper

Pearl artist, Jimmy DeGrasso and legendary rocker Alice Cooper have joined forces again to take the world by storm with a long list of tour dates that will keep them rocking to the masses for the entire summer. As you may recall, Jimmy and Alice were teamed up starting back in 1995 and Jimmy remained a permanent fixture with Alice Cooper up until he parted ways and joined up with another multi-platinum act, Megadeth, in 1999. Pearl artist, Eric Singer took the throne after Jimmy parted ways with Alice Cooper, and he continues to be the backbone to Cooper when he isn’t fulfilling previous obligations with KISS.

Before Jimmy received the call for Alice Cooper, he had recently been playing, touring, and recording with several acts including F5 and Hail, as well as performing drum clinics around the world. Outside of the life on the road, Jimmy has also spent the last 5 years building up his drum shop, San Jose Pro Drum, which has the reputation for being the one-stop-shop for drummers of all ages and skill levels. This summer Jimmy will be out slamming on his custom Orange Sparkle Reference Series kit which Jimmy had made during his campaign on the David Lee Roth tours back in 2006. Jimmy’s kit specs are as follow:

Reference Series in custom Orange Sparkle:
22x18 bass drum x 2
8x7 tom
10x8 tom
12x8 tom
13x9 tom
14x14 floor tom
15x15 floor tom
16x16 floor tom
14x5.5 Jimmy Degrasso Signature Snare Drum
6x12 quarter tom
6x15 quarter tom

To see and hear this incredible kit, and incredible drummer, in action head out to one of Alice Cooper’s many concerts this summer; they will be touring the majority of the globe over the course of the next 6months.
