Ferrer, Frank locked

  • Carlos Palomares

Extract

(b ?New York, NY, March 25, 1966). American rock drummer and session musician. Ferrer was raised in New York City. His father was a Latin percussionist who emigrated from Cuba in 1957. Ferrer grew up listening to Cuban music and Elvis Presley, but abruptly changed musical tastes after attending a concert by the heavy metal band KISS. Other glam, metal, and hard rock bands, such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Cheap Trick, formed the crux of his early influences.

Ferrer first recorded in 1990 with the band The Beautiful. In 1992 he joined the band Love Spit Love, which was led by guitarist Richard Fortus (formerly of the band Psychedelic Furs). Ferrer and Fortus have continued to work together in Love Spit Love and the band Honkey Toast, as well as in a reunited lineup of Psychedelic Furs that formed in 2000. Ferrer has also performed and recorded with other artists, including Robi “Draco” Rosa (formerly of the Puerto Rican boy band Menudo)....
