A Smattering of Hits Outside the Prog-Rock Sphere of Styx

Todd Sucherman is one of the modern greats of the drumset. His powerfully precise drumming has been driving the legendary prog-rock band Styx for a quarter century and is still going strong. Todd’s versatility also finds him in great demand as a studio drummer for artists in a wide variety of genres. An energetic delivery of ideas, combined with a keen sense of musicality, makes Todd the musician that he is. Whether shredding over complex forms and meters, laying down a deep backbeat, or fronting his own solo project, Sucherman always has something important to say.
