The Drum Shuffle - Episode 065 - Rob Mount

The Drum Shuffle

Rob Mount started drumming at an early age in his hometown of Rochester, New York.  When he reached early adulthood, he set out to be a professional musician.  After a couple of early trials in the music business, his story almost had a different outcome.  After those letdowns, he took a break from drumming and the music business, but he remained prepared for opportunities that would surely come his way.  And, they certainly did.  After doing a couple of pick up gigs for Rochester's hometown hero, Lou Gramm, it wasn't long before Lou asked Rob to join his band full-time.  On episode 065, Rob joins Jamie to discuss how he got his start, the times that he was down but not out, and how staying ready paid off for him with a once-in-a-lifetime gig.  Rob is one of the most down-to-earth "real" guys in the music business that is eager to help other drummers.  Be sure to listen to this great interview to hear Rob's awesome story.

Rob Mount | Never Too Late

Drumeo Gab Podcast

Rob Mount is the drummer for the rock legend Lou Gramm, who is most famously recognized as the vocalist for Foreigner. Rob has been an active drummer for a great deal of time, although his big breakthrough gig with Lou did not happen for him until his 40's, which is rather late for a musician. Even though Rob didn't get his major gig until much later in life, it did not stop him from believing that it was possible. He always kept that part of his life hopeful and miraculously his big opportunity came along. In this interview, Rob and I discuss the process of getting that gig, but in a much more conceptual way than the actual literal side of the story. We hypothesize about whether he could continue working his day job and gigging smaller gigs on the weekend forever. This is particularly interesting because Rob did sub in for Lou once when Lou's brother, Ben, was sick. After that, however, Rob had to wait a long time before another opportunity came along. It was a bit painful for him. Further along the episode, we get into some very unlikely topics including propaganda, media, mental health, and some fundamental basics for human beings.   Rob's Socials Instagram | Website DrumGAB's Socials Instagram | Website

He has toured the world multiple times over, released several albums in several different countries and is now the drummer for arguably one of the bigger influencers of the hair metal genre…. I finally got to meet him at Namm and am stoked that we finally made this happen…Key Points from today's episode: Rob takes us back 43 years to age 7 when he was known to shred the Osmonds on his homemade Disney book and toy rigged drumset. We learn about his early exposure to the band kiss and how his kick-ass mom made sure he was equipped with the metal giants latest vinyl. Rob talks about his early influences as well as his first drum teacher who kind of freaked him out. Rob spent a lot of time working on his playing and focusing on his education which allowed him to really gain the chops he needed to get any gig he wanted. Rob breaks down the story of how he landed the gig with Lou Gramm through his own foreigner cover band. This band will ultimately go on to become the band to back Lou Gramm and the gig of a lifetime for Rob.With such a giant resume it is no wonder that this show went as long as it did.

03/15/17 Rob Mount - Drummer with Lou Gramm, Formerly of Foreigner

Jackie's Groove

Rob’s drumming career started at the age of 7 years old when he started studying percussion at The Hochstein School of Music in his hometown of Rochester, NY under the instruction of famed Chuck Mangione drummer Vincent Ruggiero. From there, during his high school years Rob studied percussion at The Eastman School of Music, and music education at Nazareth College. Through all of these years, Rob participated in various concert bands and percussion ensembles.  Top grades for his abilities were the norm. While Rob is schooled in percussion, he is entirely self taught on the drumset. Rob’s influences include Peter Criss, John Bonham, Neil Peart, Tommy Aldridge, Steve Gadd, and Steve Smith among others.Prior to joining Lou Gramm’s band officially, Rob had performed a few drum duties for him. In 2004, Rob recorded drum tracks for several Foreigner songs to be used for promotional purposes. Shortly after he also filled in as practice drummer as needed when Lou’s brother Ben (his drummer at the time) wasn’t available. In July 2009, Lou needed a drummer when Ben became ill. Rob filled in and played the show on 3 day’s notice. In early 2016, after Ben retired permanently from the band, Lou immediately called Rob and offered him the gig full time – no audition needed!  Needless to say, joining one of his rock and roll heroes on stage night after night is a dream come true. Rob is currently on tour playing some of his favorite music with THE best vocalist of his generation.
