The master drummer and percussionist with Anders Osborne, Karl Denson, and Pimps of Joytime cut his teeth in the Bay Area drum corps scene as a member of the World Champion Santa Clara Vanguard Drumline.

Eric has flourished in spite of life-threatening health challenges. Tonight he weathers a sit-down with the Troubled Men.

Musicians Clinic, a shocking diagnosis, bus tours, dialysis, lost time, MusicCares, movie and TV work, “Belushi,” “Green Book,” and much more.
