Gateshead student, Kyle Hughes, will be drumming for The Dead Daisys  and Thin Lizzy’s Bassist, Marco Mendoza, on his European Tour, Viva La Rock, this month.

Kyle has quickly made an impact with the skills he’s built up since the age of 6, playing shows in LA, Washington and across Europe, as well as playing Glastonbury Festival 2017.

He’s played in a variety of different bands supporting the likes of  Jools Holland, The Jacksons, Texas, Simple Minds, Scouting for Girls and many more. Kyle’s drumming caught the eye of Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, who quickly snapped him up to be his drummer for all his shows, worldwide.

We’d say he’s a Rock Star in the making – but perhaps he already is! Looking forward to hearing what he gets up to next!
