Ron Campbell
Us :: Ron"Zilla" Campbell :: Drums

Drumming is in Ron Campbell's soul, maybe that's why he's always known he would end up in something literally Monsterus. With an inherent need to bang on something, Ron's pursuit of music began early on. "At four or five, I was banging on my mom's pots, pans and empty Folgers cans," Ron recalls, "Seeing Peter Criss on a live broadcast only further cemented my musical direction." By age 10, Ron was pounding away on his first kit and by age 16, Ron had made it into the clubs. Those he lists as influences - Tommy Lee, Blas Elias and Ringo Starr - can be felt in his playing, but make no mistake Ron too will undoubtedly leave his mark on Generation X & Y.

Whether behind the kit, in the studio or on the phone keeping the business end tied down, Ron likes to stay on top of things. Although he enjoys the studio, Ron shines live and is looking most forward to touring. Currently using DW Drums and Pedals, Zildjian cymbals and Zildjian ZMC miking system, Remo drumheads and endorsing Vic Firth sticks and the May Acoustic Drum Miking System. Ron encourages those wanting to pursue music as a career to "Believe in yourself. Persistence will pay off. Follow your dreams and never, ever give up."
