Hello, my name is Gary Hollingsworth and I have been playing drums for 16 years.
Played and recorded with a mix of different music styles throughout my playing from folk singer/songwriters to a Dio Tribute band.
In 2018 I opened a show for Diamond Head with a band called Bad Taste, which is a mix of old and new rock/metal. The band members are friends that I grew up with and have known since I was a kid.
Currently I am the drummer for Kakihara, a metal band from Edinburgh, Scotland and in late August 2019 we released our first demo followed by playing our first show opening for Kaddish and Dawn Ray’d in November 2019.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play 5A sticks for the weight and feel.
I like that they are a little longer than a standard 5A giving you that extra reach added with the medium taper makes them perfect for what kind of music I play. The grip is soo good and the durability is amazing and lasts much longer than other sticks that I have used in the past.
I would recommend Collision Drumsticks to any drummer looking for great sticks.
