Thanks for so much inspiration over the years Tommy. Saw you with W.S. at the Antelope Valley Fair this past summer. You were better than ever!! Keep the thunder alive man. KV

I just want to say that you have always been one of the best drummers in hard rock/heavy metal with skills on the level with Neal Pert (personal opinion anyway). I look forward to hearing the next album that you play on and to someday actually get the opportunity to see you in concert as I have always been deprived of that in the past. Wishing you many more years of skins bashing!!

I have had many differing influences on my drumming style over the years, however Tommy Aldridge has certainly had the greatest influence and impact on my drumming. Thank you!

Hi Tommy. Been a big fan since I saw you play live with BOA, Beckly, WV National Guard Armory, fall 1974. Your double-bass drumming floored me and all my friends. On the way home, we talked more about you than the rest of the band!!

Hi Tommy! Hope all is well with you-I know you wouldnt remember me but I did a Nugent show at Rodeos in Jackson when it was still open and enjoyed talking with you- Take care and best of luck!

Tommy. You are the greatest. Glad to see you in the 2009 touring Whitesnake lineup on Youtube. When Bonham died Page and Plant should have contacted you and continued. Best wishes for 2014.

It's a biggest pleasure for me to sign the guestbook of the biggest drummer of hard-rock and heavy metal of the wolrd (and from the biggest hard rock band called Whitesnake). You can't imagine whats I'm happy for see you in the back of the Whitesnake's place (since the first time, circa 1988/89).Greetings for your big art of drummin'. You're a legend.Thanx.

Tommy, We exchanged email a few years back What a talent God created in you. It's interesting to hear the combination of southern drawl, Californian and British accent in your voice. The first time I saw you play was at the Confederate Heights CC in Florence, MS back in the late 60's early 70's. My recollection is you were playing a blue sparkle drum kit. Thanks for giving God the credit for your successful journey. "Rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances" A fan and fellow follower. Joey

Tommy,it's time to put pin to paper and give us an autobiography.As a fellow Mississippian I'd be glad to help.Mainly because I won't hear the tale from someone who took the ride.

I seen you with Black Oak every time the band played in Chicago at the Auditorium Theatre. Also when Black Oak played at The Chicago Stadium behind Ted Nugent. Tell you the truth cant remember if you played that gig. My youth if you know what I mean. Everybody loved the bare hands drum solo. Seen Coverdale with Purple and gonna have to see White Snake if your with them if you ever tour Denver. Even liked Pat T with Boom Boom. Ray Mancinis boxing entrance. Gives you an idea of my age. Keep the sticks on skins!

Hi Tommy, I was just watching some old Shawn Lane videos and didn't even know you were in BOA. You guys rocked, and love all your groups. Used to see Shawn play in clubs here in Memphis in the 80's. I didn't know he was one of the greats back then. Best wishes!

//Tommy Azzinaro


Tommy,first saw you with BOA and from there you were my biggest influence for double bass drumming and playing drums in general. I also had rotator cuff surgery a few years back like you did years ago. Yea that's tough not being able to touch the drums for that amount of time. But like you I fought hard and am now back up and running full force. Hope your doing well. Met you once and was floored by your humbleness. Hope to see you playing again soon so I can be inspired by you some more. Never stop rocking!

Hey Tommy, Just checking to see how you were doing. Miss seeing you play live these days. I still watch videos of your playing. You were a major inspiration to me and my drumming...Let us know what your working on these days.

Tommy, Don't know if you'll remember me or not but you and I knew each other back in the late 60s-early 70s when I played drums with Jimi Henderson from Pearl. I've kept up with your career off and on and saw a BOA tribute on Paladia tonight and thought I'd reach out and say hello. Congratulations, Bro, on such an illustrious career.

Hey Tommy, just a quick note to let you know how much I truly appreciate you and how much you have influenced my drumming. We met once in 79, Go For What You Know tour" in Sacramento. Shakin Street, P.T., Cheap Trick and Soft White Underbelly. Lol Saw Pat a few years back and he re autographed the same photo that he signed in 79. (The same pic he has hanging in his house) He was blown away by it, especially since you and Mars autographs were on the back. Great stuff. Again, THANK YOU! Peace bro

Many thanks for what you are doing with your music. Dario Drummer of My Dea

Tuesday, October 22nd 2013 - 06:53:46 PM


Bless you Tommy! you drumming is an inspiration to so many, I've stolen so many things from you over the years I must say a big, Thank You! I have a question, you seem to have perfect posture at the kit is that something you have to work on? especially during long shows, do you have a fitness regime? if so what is it? Good Luck for the future! Kind Regards Nick

//desi fulmer

I've been a fan of Tommy since 1981 when I first learned who he was at about the same time becoming interested in playing drums myself. My first opportunity I had to see Veteran Drummer Tommy A. was at city park stadium in New Orleans back in I guess around 1982. When I was 15 years old. I am also self taught from your neighboring state of Louisiana now living Mississippi. Was wondering if you return back home to Jackson any?

Hi. My name is sebastian conti and write from italy. I am a compositor and guitarist. Next months i will record here in Sicily one album sung in english. I would know if you ( Gene) offer (at distance) session performance for the drum in a private project. Infact this is a private work. No record label. At the end of the work i will find someone :) . If you offer this performance which is you budget for each song? I love your techniques and i would be happy to have it on my album. The dreams are the last to die. And for me would be a great satisfaction and pleasure. Let me know. Thanks and bye. Ciao sebastiano P.s. If you accept, i could send you by web the songs in background with the drum played by another drumer (just to guide), you make the rest. so you could recording where you prefer and after the payament you could send me again the tracks with your amazing drum recorded. Waiting you answer Thanks and bye. Sorry for my english
