DRU Underwood was exposed to music from the moment he was born. His father, also a musician, doesn’t drive anywhere in a car without blasting music loud enough for the cars nearby to hear it. It wasn’t much different at home, either. This left a big impression on little baby Dru. On his 6th birthday, his father bought him a drum kit, and it wasn’t one of those silly ass children’s drum kits…it was a real one. (in hindsight, he probably bought it so that he could play it too, but whatever…it totally ruled). Once he quickly picked up everything his father showed him, he put on headphones and learned from the drummers of his favorite bands. From that moment on, Dru spent most of his time in the basement playing along to his favorite records. At age 11, he got a guitar…and so on and so forth.
Once he graduated from college, he recognized that most of the musicians in his hometown of Lehighton, PA wanted to play bad country music or Nickleback….f@$& that nonsense. Eventually he moved to Philadelphia and toured with various bands until his skinny ass could no longer handle the frigid winters of the northeast. He moved to St. Petersburg, FL to thaw out a bit and almost immediately met Melissa and the rest is history.
Dru is pretty much obsessed with all things music, cars and motorcycles, yoga, being physically active, and butts. He thinks tattoos are dandy and loves to travel and eat awesome food. He loves long walks on the beach because really…..who the f*** doesn’t?
