Boom-ography

Paddy Boom • Drummer/Percussionist/Songwriter
Born • Boston, Massachussetts
Hometown • New York City

My music obsession all started in 1977 at Grafflin Elementary School in Chappaqua, New York. A local cover band came and played the auditorium and I was instantly mesmerized by the drummer as the group played ‘Band On the Run’ by Paul McCartney and Wings. Fast forward 27 years and shortly after playing with Scissor Sisters at Live 8 in London, I met Sir Paul McCartney backstage. He said “Mate, would you mind signing my tour program? My daughter is a huge fan of Scissor Sisters”. A defining moment indeed.
