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."
