Drummer - Rock

Drumsticks: Vater

Robin Diaz grew up in the Southgate suburb of Los Angeles. Southgate is notorious for being a rough neighborhood, so Diaz spent his time indoors playing along on drums to his favorite records - Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Radiohead and Smashing Pumpkins were all part of his repertoire.

Eventually Diaz started playing in a number of local LA bands, sometimes 3 or 4 bands at a time. "I just love playing drums and being on stage - that's always been my escape", says Diaz.

After making friends with producers in LA, he soon was busy playing recording sessions as a "ghost drummer", landing recording gigs with Trapt (2000–2001), Theory of a Deadman (2007–2009), Hinder, and Danzig. During this time he also found himself subbing for other drummers playing various live gigs.

Diaz was also touring with Daughtry (2010–14) and most recently Courtney Love. He is endorsed by Sabian and Vater.
