SLASH Drummer BRENT FITZ To Embark On Canadian 'Cymbal Vote Tour'

Drummer Brent Fitz (SLASH, VINCE NEIL, GILBY CLARKE, UNION) will embark on the Canadian "Sabian Cymbal Vote Tour" next week. It's a free afternoon event in each city.

Says Brent: "I'll be trying out and discussing new prototype cymbals and you will have a chance to play them and vote as well. A very interactive and musical day. We're giving away plenty of cool prizes too! I'm really looking forward to saying hi to everyone. It's gonna be a blast. See you there."

The details are as follows:

Sep. 23 - Vancouver, BC - Long & McQuade
Sep. 24 - Calgary, AB - Long & McQuade
Sep. 25 - Winnipeg, MB - Long & McQuade
Sep. 26 - Ottawa, ON - Long & McQuade
Sep. 27 - Montreal, QC - Steve's Music Store
Sep. 28 - Toronto, ON - Just Drums

Fitz, 43, joined Slash's band in 2010. The Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada native left his hometown in the mid-1990s to explore music opportunities in Los Angeles and he hasn't looked back since.

"When I moved to L.A., I started at zero again," Brent told the Winnipeg Free Press in 2012. "I had a lot of playing experience but didn’t know anybody. I started working with as many people as I could."

"I can play multiple instruments and we had an incident in Russia [during a tour with Slash] where one of the musicians was sent home for emergency surgery so I played bass and my drum tech played drums," Brent told the Winnipeg Free Press in 2010. " I had no rehearsals and played two sold-out shows in Russia."
