Mike Thorne - SAGA
Mike Thorne is the drummer for Canadian Prog legends SAGA. SAGA has been recording & touring forever and plays all over the world. Their style is very unique and doesn't follow any "norm".
Saga has sold over 8 million albums and have achieved gold and platinum album status throughout their long career.
"SAGA uses a lot of old Simmons sounds. I knew when I got this gig that I'd be needing some e-drums. I've used a lot of triggers over the years and I wanted something I could be sure would take my abuse and would last on the road.
Dan Todd, of Platinum Blonde showed me his set-up and I was sold! I use four Dauz pads as remotes for a sampling unit along with the acoustic kit."
