Drummer Live has confirmed Skunk Anansie drummer Mark Richardson will play the LIMS show on 14 June 2009.

Drummer Live is part of LIMS 2009 (the London International Music Show 2009), taking place 11-14 June at ExCel, London.

Richardson started out playing with Little Angels - who over 10 years toured with Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith and Van Halen - before joining Skunk Anansie. The band have recently reformed.

The Drummer Live lineup at LIMS is now:

13 June
Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard/ Tears for Fears),
Cora Coleman (Prince's drummer) with Josh Dunham on bass
Steve Smith (Journey/ Vital Information)

14 June
Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) and Pete Lockett (Bjork, Robert Plant/Jarvis Cocker/Peter Gabriel)
Derrick McKenzie and Sola Akingbola (Jamiroquai)
Mark Richardson (Skunk Anansie)

Also confirmed at the show is a demonstration from The Clem Burke Drumming Project. This will be explaining the health, well-being and fitness benefits of drumming with guest drummer Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream) who will put himself through an incremental drumming test to exhaustion whilst wearing the latest 'state-of-the-art' sports science technology.

Mooney (pictured below) will battle to keep pace with the ultimate drum test.
