Gregg Bissonette, (born June 9, 1959, Detroit, Michigan) is an American drummer. Bissonette was born in a family of musicians. His father Bud Bissonette plays drums, his mother Phyllis plays piano and vibraphone, and brother Matt Bissonette plays bass guitar. Bissonette started learning to play the drums at age 5 from his father. Bissonette went on to study at the University of North Texas where he was a music education major. He was also featured in the famed One O'Clock Lab Band. After college, he joined Matt in the Maynard Ferguson Big Band and recorded "Live from San Francisco". One of Bissonette's first recordings was Brandon Field's "The Other Side of the Story" in 1985. It also featured David Garfield on keyboards. A few years later Bissonette would start playing shows with Brandon, David, and Steve Lukather on guitar and with John Pena on bass as "Los Lobotomys" to standing room only audiences. These shows took place at The Baked Potato, a jazz club and restaurant located in Los Angeles, California, playing rock, Latin, jazz and more.
