Greg Lowther – I began drumming with friends at Wilson High School in Long Beach, CA. We named our punk band the Falling Idols. We began getting shows all around the LA basin with bands such as TSOL, the Circle Jerks, etc. Our first recordings were done in 1981 and sold at local record stores like Zed Records in Long Beach. Our band became a bit of a farm team for better known acts. The singer David Quackenbush went on to front the Vandals, bass player Randy Bradbury to Pennywise, guitarist Trey Pangborn to Long Beach Dub Allstars and LB Shortbus.  I continued playing with many bands on drums including Corn Doggy Dog (with Zman the author of Dying in Triplicate); 3rd Alley; Del Noah and the Mt. Ararat Finks (with Sublime bass player Eric Wilson); Gluefactory (with Mike Davis of Secret Hate) and most recently with Perro Bravo (with Sublime and Slightly Stoopid producer Michael Happoldt). In the meantime I also founded Long Beach Records which has expanded to Europe. Music has remained a constant in my life since 1981 and has taken me around the world playing gigs and shows in places I would have normally never been exposed to.  Greg Lowther
