Tommy Wagner was born in Munich, Germany and started playing drums at the age of 11.
He studied Dante Agostini’s Drumming School while being influenced by late 70s/early 80s hard rock and his favourite drummers Ian Paice and Nigel Glockler.
Besides playing with local bands his hard hitting style soon got him high profile gigs for international bands as Bonfire (GER) and Glasstiger (CAN) in the late 80s, which set the course for Tommy’s ongoing reputation as one of the hardest hitters around.
In addition to playing drums Tommy released a couple of albums of his own music in the 90s and 00s as a singer and songwriter.
In 2014 Tommy toured Europe with the german/american glam-metal band Shameless. 2015 led him across England on drums for Cherie Currie (voice of The Runaways/USA), and continued touring with her in 2016 in Australia and New Zealand.
Hear Tommy play and sing on Cherie Currie’s latest album “Midnight Music in London”. Watch out for Tommy touring Europe in 2017 with LustfingeR and Shameless!
