Considered the Godfather of hardcore drumming, Lucky was voted the best punk drummer of all time by readers of influential Flipside Magazine. “My style is a combination of Latin and hard “speed rock,” borrowing heavily from childhood exposure to legends like Buddy Rich. Playing extremely fast was considered desirable. I owe a debt of gratitude to pioneer teachers like Murray Spivak plus spending a lot of time with a practice pad and metronome.” Lucky is the only punk drummer to have his picture on the Wall of Fame at the Professional Drum Shop in Hollywood, CA.
