Rhino grew up in Nashville, TN country music capital of the world but knew early on that Heavy Metal was in his blood. Hitting the drums at the early age of 9, the self taught double bass powerhouse spent hours playing along to all his favorite Heavy Metal albums. He spent years playing the local club scene and it was here that MANOWAR discovered him in 1989 playing with his band ARCH ANGEL. Impressed with his double bass, timing and speed, he was asked to join MANOWAR, and in 1991 recorded "The Triumph of Steel" album with them, their best selling album to date. Touring Europe multiple times and Japan between 1992-1995. Rhino left MANOWAR in 1995 to pursue personal interest he returned to Nashville, for the next 10 years he wrote, recorded and cataloged his music. He continued to play his drums with various local bands. In 2005 HOLYHELL was formed and the band recored their EP and did a tour throughout the States, which included such venues as BB Kings and House Of Blues. The band continues to tour throughout Europe with MANOWAR, and recently released a full length album. In 2008 Rhino rejoined MANOWAR for their 25th anniversary tour, which included a record breaking non-stop 5 1/2 hour show in Bulgaria. Wanting to do more creatively, in 2007 Rhino decided to form ANGELS OF BABYLON, and with the release of the debut album “Kingdom of Evil” he is off to a great start!
