Drums

Lez Warner

Email

Lez Warner is a world class musician whose diverse drumming talents are always in demand. Lez cut his teeth in the London punk scene before establishing himself as a seasoned go-to session drummer, recording for the likes of Sham 69, Johnny Thunders, The Waterboys, Julian Lennon, Randy California (the band Spirit) and Peter Green (of Fleetwood Mac).

His extensive touring experience paid off when he was chosen over 150 other drummers to join The Cult, for what would be described as their "Golden Age". Following the epic "LOVE" tour, fans were thrilled to hear more of Lez on future Cult albums, including the smash hit records "Electric" and "The Manor Sessions". His powerful rock-steady style can be heard on the massive hits "Wildflower" and "Love Removal Machine." Over the years, Lez Warner's impressive resume continues to expand into further musical genres and roles. He formed the London rock band "Hellfire Club" with Paul Raven of Killing Joke, joined and recorded with the traditional Irish band "The McCabes" in New York and even played as a guest with "Spinal Tap" at the Beacon Theater. The list of iconic musicians he has worked with also continues to grow, including Ronnie Montrose, Sin City Allstars, The Batusi (featuring Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls and Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys) and Mandy Lion. While his ongoing session work is featured on the upcoming Batusi record produced by Ken Cooma, of the band Wilco Fame, written and performed on commercial ads, and the pivotal Sega Genesis game "Mortal Combat" and has music on TNT’s show Franklin and Bash. In his current home base of Las Vegas, Lez can frequently be found performing and mentoring at the renown Rock N’ Roll Fantasy Camp. Additionally, he works in various capacities for several Las Vegas productions, from hand-picking the feature musicians for "Erictica" at the REO Casino to single-handedly performing the live and interactive musicscape to "V-The Ultimate Variety Show". In a city studded with world class tributes, Lez doggedly performed for three years drumming for the Jay White Show, a Las Vegas premier Neil Diamond act at the Riviera. This renaissance man of rhythm will step off the throne to play bass for a Las Vegas U2 Tribute band, Arms of America and a great Tom Petty tribute, "You Got Lucky." Lez’s experience (some honed percussion skills during his travels in Africa), talent and passion for music will always drive him on to new projects. He is currently the drummer for "BowWowWow" and will be recording and touring throughout the year.
