Though currently recognised for his hard hitting, high energy Rock drumming, Russell has a wealth of experience in a range of genres, with his first taste of touring Europe when he joined Alan price (the Animals) at the age of 18. Russell went onto play pop records with the likes of John Farnham, 5 Star, Boy Meets Girl, before joining “Chris Barber’s Jazz and Blues Band’.
Russell has also played with many names, including Avantasia (Rock Opera), Tony Iommi (Heavy Metal), Bedlam(Blues Rock), Van Morrison(Blues Pop) and has over 20 years experience in the UK drum clinic scene alongside Greg Bissonette, Kenny Aronoff, Thomas Lang, Jimmy Chamberlin and Billy Cobham, to name a few.
Russell is in his twelfth year with Uriah Heep, playing approximately 27 countries per year. The band are now promoting their latest studio album ‘Living the Dream’ alongside Heavy Metal band, Judas Priest as special guests on their American tour throughout Spring/Summer of 2019.
Russell has co-designed, with Marrell Drums, the bass drum beaters that he plays. He uses British Drum Company drums, Code drumheads, Baskey Drum Mats and Rug Lugs, Paiste cymbals and Pellwood drumsticks.
