Mark on Lea
“I’m very fortunate to have Lea in this band. He’s an amazing percussionist and so musical. It’s the perfect balance for this gig. Coming into this band that had done 25 Live I was thinking, ‘How is this going to work?’ It was just seamless. Before we even played together I knew it was going to be great. He’s a fantastic player. I put him up there with Bashiri [Johnson] and Luis [Conte]. He plays drumset too so understands what I’m doing. Some percussionists don’t understand drumset, that’s when things clash.”
